Faith Knowledge Respect

Academics

Faith, Knowledge, Respect

The foundation for the Fatima education begins in our Pre-K, Primary, and Intermidiate Schools where we combine an interactive academic program with a social curriculum rooted in our Catholic Faith. This curriculum enables children from three years of age through grade five to share the values of honesty, fairness, and respect, and to learn the skills of cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, and self-control. The academic program places emphasis on literacy skills, as well as on both the process and product of mathematical thinking. With a multi-sensory approach, children learn there are many ways to solve problems.

Our Middle School academic program encourages students to take increasing responsibility for their learning as they begin to organize, synthesize, and integrate information. Students transition from a fifth grade year that has them based primarily in one classroom but moving for a few classes, to the sixth, seventh and eighth grade years where they cycle through five academic courses daily plus arts/music and gym. Through this careful transition, students gain self-direction and awareness. Our fall outdoor education program, physical education program, interscholastic sports, and community service all present students with physical and personal challenges that improve their sense of cooperation and community.

The entire OLF faculty is committed to developing an outstanding program of curricula across the school divisions that is developmentally appropriate, challenging, creative, relevant, and enlightened.

Drop Off/Dismissal

Students in Kindergarten-8th report to the gym any time after 7:45 AM.

Students should use the back door of the school to enter the building. Students proceed to the gymnasium where they line up by class.

Students in grades 6-7-8 will be dismissed to their classrooms at 8:00AM.
Students in grades K-5 will be dismissed to their classrooms at 8:15 AM.
Pre-school students should be escorted to their classroom by parents any time after 8:15.

There is adult supervision in the gym after 7:45am. Please do not drop off your child before that time.
It is extremely important that your children start the day in a positive way by being on time at their required time every morning.

Dismissal

Students in Kindergarten-8th report to the gym with their teachers for our official 2:50 PM dismissal time. Parents may arrive to pick up their children every day in the gym and may begin gathering there at 2:40 PM every day.

Please do not go directly to the classroom or wait in the front lobby. This causes congestion and interrupts the flow of the dismissal procedure. Students not picked up by 3:00 PM will be taken to the After School Program and, like all parents who use the After School Program, you will be charged accordingly.
