  • Last week our scholars had the opportunity to purchase items from our Falcon Store. This was a wonderful opportunity for our scholars to spend their hard earned Falcon bucks. Falcon Bucks are rewarded for a variety of reasons. If you would like to make a donation to the Falcon Store we welcome all items. Examples of items we would love to have in the store include seasonal items (football season, Halloween, etc), stickers, fun school supplies, dollar store toys, spirit items, and so on.

J-Lo's Word

I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing Labor Day weekend. I was able to rest and renew with my family. As I did, I prayed and reflected about our school's theme this year: Rebuild, Restore, Renew. I want to constantly remind our Fatima Family about this theme because it is easy to get boogled down in everyday life and forget that we are truly rebuilding so much here at Fatima. And with anything that is rebuilt, sometimes you have to knock out a few walls to accomplish a final product. As we continue to make changes, I hope everyone can see the beauty of what we are creating--and that is strong young men and woman who are disciplined, independent, loving disciples of Christ. My expectations for our scholars are high, but I can remember my mom telling me when I graduated college to always remember that each child who graces my door is a gift from God and has been entrusted to me for a reason. I take that very personally, and I take my job of teaching our children very personally. When your scholar leaves Fatima, I want our community to know that child was a Fatima scholar. As we continue to rebuild Fatima, I trust in our partnership to take our scholars to new heights, and as always, I thank you for trusting us with your most precious gift.
