Parent involvement details At Our Lady of Fatima School, we support parents as the primary educators of their children. Online teacher blogs and weekly newsletters help keep parents up-to-date. Curriculum Night in the fall and the Celebration of Learning in the spring include classroom visits to learn about and see student work. Parent-Teacher conferences are scheduled during the first trimester. Parents are always welcome to contact their children's teachers.
Approach to addressing and preventing bullying The school seeks to eliminate hurtful behaviors while providing students with the skills to assist victims of such behavior. Bullying is the result of someone who has a pattern of hurting, frightening, threatening, or intentionally embarrassing or excluding someone. Any of these actions is taken very seriously and will be handled according to our Guidelines for Discipline. Parental support is essential to the success of a school program that builds upon respect for each person.
