J-Lo's Word

Falcon Spirit is on the RISE,and I love it! I see the basketball season kicking off, kids excited about student council, drama, and other activities, and so much involvement from everyone! With that comes the responsibility of carrying the Fatima name into our community and on our campus. As we here at Fatima continue to work towards love, kindness, and goodness to others we pray and ask that you will talk to your scholar at home about the importance of treating others the way we want to be treated. The Golden Rule is more important today than ever before. Our children have their whole lives to be in a the real world, where we, as adults, know all too well to be harsh more often than not. School should a safe place filled with love and encouragement. Please continue to support our efforts here to fill our campus with Christ's love as we continue to support your efforts at home to do the same! It takes a village! Blessings!
