Fatima Donations to Food Pantry

One of our 7th graders, Abby Jones, recently organized a food drive to benefit the Wilton Food Pantry. Abby suggested the food drive during a recent Sodality meeting on Zoom. The Wilton Bulletin covered the story. The students are members of Sodality, a Catholic youth group for students in sixth through eighth grades that is largely dedicated to community service projects.

Truly Grateful and Ever Thankful ~ Our video of thanks to you...

The uncertain times of Covid-19 brought upon us an unusual and dire scenario - that of needing to produce pieces of the yearly budget by the end of June 2020. The school was thwarted in their efforts to execute fundraising since the time the virus dictated we all stay home. In what seemed like a near impossible situation, we found astounding goodness and generous hearts to help get us to the budget goal in this most difficult year. And so now, we say thank you to all who lent us this helping hand. With much love and respect, we give you this video as a small offering of our thanks.

PROVIDING THE FOUNDATION FOR TOMORROW’S LEADERS
A PERSONALIZED APPROACH TO LEARNING
 
Personalized Learning allows students to learn in an environment that taps their unique needs and strengths in order to engage, inspire and empower them to reach their highest potential. 
 
While many teachers already personalize learning and differentiate instruction, this initiative provides the tools to take what they already do to the next level:
 
- Technology: one of several tools to enhance curriculum and encourage student creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication. Fatima utilizes Edmentum Exact Path aiding in individualized learning.
- “Station-Rotation”: incorporates teacher directed instruction to small groups based on a student’s needs and student collaboration on a teacher assigned project, to create and communicate mastery of skills and knowledge.
- Fatima continues to offer its STREAM curriculum enhanced by Innovation Labs tools and Maker Space.  
 
Smaller Class sizes with a Personalized Approach to learning allow Fatima students to continue to achieve excellence beyond standardized testing norms.

What People Are Saying

My family will forever be grateful to Our Lady of Fatima for the priceless education that my children received. While academically speaking the education was extremely competitive with other schools in the area in math, reading, & science skills, OLF taught our kids the most valuable and priceless of lessons: those of faith, respect, and compassion. What they learn at OLF is gradual, their day seemingly no different than other kids from other schools, but as a parent, you see it in the little things: from them being excited about a story discussed in religion class that day, to discovering they know the entire Star Spangled Banner at a sports game, to them asking if they could donate half of their birthday money to charity. All it takes is a grain of sand.... OLF is just that.
