New at Our Lady of Fatima 2018:

PERSONALIZED LEARNING INITIATIVE

Bishop chooses Our Lady of Fatima as 2018-19 pilot school

Our Lady of Fatima School is thrilled to be chosen by the Bishop to be one of a handful of Catholic schools to lead the way of a critical component in the next level of Catholic education, Personalized Learning Initiative.

Personalized learning is student-centered which allows them to learn in an environment that taps their unique needs and strengths to engage, inspire and empower them to reach their highest potential.

While many teachers already personalize learning and differentiate instruction, this initiative gives them the tools to take what they already do to the next level.  The initiative will provide three key things: an updated technology infrastructure, new hardware and student devices, and programs to support the traditional Catholic school educational experience.  

TECHNOLOGY: 

Technology will be a tool to assist teachers by providing guidance in creating an individualized path for each student, and to use integrated digital content with the current curriculum. 
This does not mean that students will be isolated on devices for an entire class period but, instead,  students will be actively engaged in their learning and will employ 21st century skills such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication.

STATION ROTATION:

In addition, schools will dedicate a portion of each day to a “station-rotation” model in which students will utilize an instructional approach that incorporates:

•Teacher-directed instruction to small groups based on student need as indicated by performance from teacher observation and online programs

•Student collaboration on a teacher-assigned project to create and communicate so as to demonstrate mastery of appropriate knowledge and skills

•Individual student time for reflection and planning

INNOVATIONS LAB:

This investment also provides a complete “Innovations Lab” to further enhance the school’s STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) offerings.  In the Innovations Lab, students will have opportunities to experiment, invent, design, and create while discovering concepts through lab stations such as Robotics, Coding, Engineering and Design, 3D Printing, and Digital Media and Broadcasting.

We are excited for this vision to come to life in the coming school year. If you have any questions or want to know more, feel free to contact Principal Steele at ssteele@olfcatholic.org or (203) 762-8100.

Mr. Steele,                                                                                                                                                            June 15, 2018
As the school year is almost over and summer break around the corner it’s time to reflect on the past year. Emily shared her first school experience in pre K with Ms. Rebecca Gammardella, Ms. K and a bunch of great, fun and curious kids and what a year it was! Ms. Della is the most wonderful, dedicated, professional, warm and loving teacher a young student can ask for.  Her positive energy is contagious. She is extremely creative, hard working and organized. She provides the kids with safe, loving and secure environment yet at the same time keeps them organized and under control. She has an amazing ability to discover and unleash child’s hidden talents and see beyond their fears, tears and anxiety that they might experience while entering pre K.  Mr. Della is able to make them feel comfortable and safe.  She makes them spread their wings and fly … fly high.
Through the year, Ms. Della provided all the parents with detailed information regarding classroom program and activities, children’s achievements, struggles and successes. She spent time giving us information on all the upcoming events, sending us reminders and posting photos. She was always available for a chat, advice or suggestions regarding the little ones. She is truly dedicated and committed.
 Her classroom is always full of laughter and giggles. Emily made tremendous gains over the last year and learned so much academically as well as socially. She made great friends. She loves going to school!
As we are almost at the end of our journey with OLF and ready to enter the public school system in Ridgefield, we would like to thank all the staff and parents that make the school such a great place. We would like to thank all the teachers and volunteers at after care program for their dedication and care.
We will miss you,
Sincerely,
Gosia and Steve Evanchik
"We recently moved from Connecticut to a school that is considered the "best elementary school" in Arizona, with a massive focus on academics. So much, that they teach an entire grade up. I have already received huge compliments on my children's ability to handle the new curriculum and the children have been praised for their manners and kind nature. While I would like to take the credit for this as a parent, the reality is that they spent 6 hours a day with the Fatima Staff during their initial school years. Fatima teachers helped form my children into the students they are and I am so grateful. My son was praised for his ability to lead in their STEM classes this week (even though science was not his strongest subject!), and for me to hear this makes me so proud and so happy that he was prepared by the best in Fairfield County, Connecticut.”
- Julie P, Former Parent

Our Lady of Fatima School Wilton is a place that challenges students to stretch, to reach outside themselves to learn about their community and their world.
