Computers

Our school endeavors to provide students with opportunities to learn through the use of technology. We provide a computer curriculum built on the scope and sequence for K-8 that gives students instruction in skills and also enables them to apply those skills, to age-appropriate projects, activities, and assignments.

Spanish

We offer a Spanish program for grades 6-8. Students learn speaking and listening skills, vocabulary, grammar and cultural perspectives from Spanish-speaking countries.

Music

Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School incorporates music into various subjects in grades K-8.

Concert Programs

All Our Lady of Fatima students perform in an annual Advent concert and a formal Spring concert. All students in K through 8 receive music instruction at Our Lady of Fatima during the school day which includes the basics of singing, posture, sight reading music, and performance practices. Our formal concerts throughout the year allow us to come together as a community and honor all of their hard work, dedication, and learning.

The Children's Choir Program

The Children’s Choir offers students in grades 3 - 6 an opportunity to share their gift of music with our school and parish communities. The choir leads a number of liturgical celebrations throughout the year.

Library

The library, containing over 3,500 fiction and non-fiction books, periodicals, and reference resources, serves both the teaching staff and the students. In addition to providing recreational reading materials for the students, the library program also includes the use of study and research skills. A part-time librarian works with each class once a week to encourage the value of reading and use of the library.
