Falcon Athletics

Boys' Basketball:

The Boys' Basketball team have played tremendously! They are off to a 2-3 start, with the recent close losses being used as learning lessons. The boys were victorious against St. Clare of Assisi (41-17) and St. Mary - League City (59-25), before falling to St. Joseph (42-51). They look to rebound and get back in the win column this Monday, Dec. 3rd against Queen of Peace in Richwood, and Wednesday December 5th against OLOF-Galena Park. Both games are preceded by the girls' games at 4:30, with the boys tipping off at 5:30. If you can't make the away game, please make the home game. We've had awesome support and win or lose, you will see the heart and fight of our team!

Texas City Christmas Parade

The Texas City Christmas Parade is next Thursday 12/6/2018. The theme this year is Rockin Around the Christmas Tree. Our SCHOOL THEME is going to be ROCKIN FALCONS. We are asking scholars who plan to ride in the parade to wear a FATIMA SPIRIT SHIRT and JEANS and some ROCK-N-ROLL accessories. These accessories may include air guitars, red and green hair strips, sunglasses, etc. We will decorate the floats in silver, black, and metallic red and green. We are asking for parent help with float decorations and decorating the day of the parade. We will start decorating the floats at 3:30 pm the day of the parade. Line-up is at 5:30 pm. There will be THREE floats for Fatima: (1) JV Cheerleaders, (2) Varsity Athletes in Jersey and Jeans, (3) Fatima Scholars. Any Middle School Student who plays a sport can ride the Varsity Athletes Float in their appropriate sports’ jersey and jeans. Teachers and Parents who are sports coaches will be allowed to ride floats with athletes; Fatima parents are NOT allowed to ride the floats.

OLOF Christmas Dinner and Performance

On December 19 we will have our Fatima Christmas Program, including dinner and pictures. Our Drama Club has been working very hard on this program! Prior to the Program, we will have a Christmas Dinner and Pictures with Santa in Ponzini. For dinner we will once again be selling our Chopped Brisket Dinners! They were popular and back by demand. There will also be a pizza option for kids! Dinner and Pictures with Santa are from 4:30-5:30. The Christmas Program starts at 6:00pm in Kukral. Attire for the Christmas Program is black, gray, or khaki colored pants or skirt and a red or green shirt or blouse (NO T-SHIRTS please). If a red or green shirt cannot be found, white is acceptable, just not preferred. Girls may wear red or green dresses with black tights, and boys may wear a green and red tie or a Christmas tie if desired too. Please do not deviate from the dress attire for the program. We want our scholars to be as uniformed as possible so that each class can add special accessories for their performance. Each homeroom will be singing TWO songs in addition to the play. Scholars will also be wearing various accessories such as Santa Hats, Elf Ears, etc.


We are also doing a Silent Christmas Auction the night of and the days before the program. Each grade level has been assigned a certain theme. We are asking for each scholar to either bring one themed item or a monetary donation to put together homeroom baskets to be auctioned off. We will start the silent auction with an online auction. Then, on the night of the Christmas Program, we will have the baskets out for a Silent Auction. The Auction will end at 6:00pm the night of the program, right as the play begins.


Here are the themes for each Homeroom:

Pre-K 3 Christmas Time!-Holiday decorations/home decor/houseware/etc

Pre-K 4 Merry Christmas! – Holiday decorations/home decor/houseware/etc

Kinder We Love Books!-bookmarks/reading light/gift cards to B & N, Amazon, etc.

J-Lo's Word

My lovely office staff jokingly reminded me this week that in every letter I also write, "This is my favorite...." Miss Monica told me once that every time I see a kid she hears me say, "I have such a special place in my heart for that baby...." And at a staff meeting recently, Father told me, after I had exclaimed, "That is my favorite," that he is learning that I seem to have a lot of "favorites." I have been reflecting on these comments made by some of the people closest to me, and I realize that I do have SO MANY favorites and they are all, and everyone, and everything is in fact MY FAVORITE because I am so incredibly blessed and I want to share that love and happiness and joy with everyone. Your babies are my babies and this campus is my favorite place. What are some of your favorites? Whatever or whoever they are, I hope you will share them all with us, especially this season when we celebrate our most favorite of all...JESUS! For he is the reason for this (favorite) Season! Have a blessed day weekend!
