Dear members of the Our Lady of Fatima community,

Welcome to the 2019 -20 school year! As I enter the third year as principal of Our Lady of Fatima CES, I look forward to continuing to build strong relationships with all members of our school community. Together with staff, Father Love and our parish team, and the parent community, my goal is to provide our children with the opportunity to flourish in their academic, spiritual and emotional growth. Our Lady of Fatima’s staff is passionate about what we do and is dedicated to effectively collaborate to ensure that Christ is present for our children and that the love of learning is modelled & encouraged. Our school strives to create a safe and accepting environment, improve learning and achievement, foster a healthy school community, and develop a growth mindset rooted in our faith. These in turn will empower all our students so they may reach their full potential- spiritually, socially, and academically.

Parents and caregivers play a vital role in their child’s development as well. We invite you to participate in our students’ education by supervising on trips, volunteering for school activities, and taking an active role on school council. It is also important to engage your child in discourse on their daily learning as well as maintain open positive consultation your child’s teacher(s). Taking an interest in your child’s life at school is a major component that contributes to their sense of well-being and academic performance. Keep the lines of communication open! Monitor our website, news-feeds, twitter, and classroom communications to ‘stay in the know’ and celebrate all the great things that happen for our children at Our Lady of Fatima.

Looking forward to a Fantastic Falcon year!

God Bless,

Rob Purificato
