Campus Security Updates

The OLOF and ECC campus now are equipped with security cameras. The cameras are monitoring all of the hallways, entrances and exits.

Many thanks go to the City of Texas City, Texas City Police Department, and the Texas City Independent School District for their help with the safety and security evaluations and recommendations for OLOF. Special thanks go to the City’s IT crew for assisting us with the security camera installation.

The safety of all of our scholar's and our Baby Falcons in the ECC is a top property to everyone!

Falcon Athletics

We are wrapping up our basketball season. We only have a few games left. Monday both Boys and Girls play away at St. Christopher, and on Wednesday the Boys host True Cross. Go Falcons.

As we look into the future, we have scholars interested in softball, track, and soccer. Be looking for more information in the next flyer!

Steps for Students

Join your Fatima Family for Steps for Students 2019! This is a wonderful opportunity to join other Catholic Schools from the Galveston/Houston Archdiocese's as we celebrate Catholic Education together. We are planning events to prepare us for the big event. We will have a tailgate section in the Catholic Village. We encourage everyone to join our Falcon Spirit today! Please follow the link below to register for Steps for Students 2019! $17.00 of your registration fee will come directly to Our Lady of Fatima Texas City!


Father Clint will be leading a training session for all those who have registered for Steps for Students this Saturday 1/13/18 at 9:00 am. Everyone will meet in Kukral Hall and are asked to bring water, towel and a yoga mat if you have one. All skill levels are welcome!

Each homeroom will compete against each other for the most money raised. The competition will start this Monday. Remember to raise money, first register, and then ask for sponsors (grandparents, work, friends, family) to donate to your page. Our school gets 100% of all donations and only $2 of your registration fee is donated to the Catholic Schools Office. So Fatima gets almost everything and we use that money for field trips, extra curricular activities, etc. We need your support!

In addition to each homeroom competing, any scholar who is registered by NOON on 1/31 will be eligible for our 2nd Annual SOCK HOP and get a root beer float! Also if 100% of the school registers, we will have a school wide movie and popcorn day before we dismiss for spring break!

Our school wide goal is $5,000! I know we can do it!

J-Lo's Word

Whew! The first full week after break is always hard, but we made it! The scholars are enjoying their new schedules and I see lots of smiles! As we gear up for STEPS for STUDENTS, I hope everyone will jump on board! When the parents and grandparents get involved in this school, and our scholars start competing against each other to raise money, sell tickets, or help kids who need toys, the SKY IS THE LIMIT! I have seen you all do amazing things already this year! Let's show downtown who the Falcons are and blow them away at STEPS 2019! FALCONS RISE UP! We are growing force! We can do this!
