Welcome!Melissa Wright, Elementary Principal

Dear Parents, Friends, and Family,

On behalf of the family at Fatima Elementary School, we would like to welcome you to our school. Fatima Elementary houses Kindergarten through sixth grade. Our teachers and staff work many hours to provide our students with exciting and educational activities and maintain high expectations. Teachers and staff are lifelong learners and work continuously throughout the school year to develop the best practices of teaching available. Fatima Elementary has top-notch teachers who continually strive to meet the changing needs of all children.

We encourage our parents and community members to be involved in our school activities. We believe that when support extends beyond the classroom walls, students can achieve even greater success. Our teachers and staff are focused on making learning a positive experience, helping students become successful and responsible citizens.

As we continue to create 21st century leaders, we must strive to keep technology as an instructional resource at our school. With the integration of technology into the classroom, students are taught using a constructivist method of instruction which encourages creativity, collaboration and critical thinking.

I am excited about the opportunity to work with the dedicated staff and parents in the Westphalia community. I continue to be genuinely impressed at how friendly, hardworking, and caring people are here, especially about the children in the community.

If at any time you have any questions, please feel free to call or send me an email.
