Welcome back to our returning families and welcome to our new families! Fatima's After School Enrichment Program offers a wide variety of student programs.
Coding with Kids is a computer programming academy. Programs advance young coders from the very beginnings all the way to the mastery of computer science and software development.
Providing a well rounded introduction in the area of musical theatre including singing, acting, and dance. Lead by stage director and voice teacher Joe Santaniello, the group mounts two fully staged and costumed productions each academic school year.
Violin lessons are provided by the Music Kids program. Their approach follows a very specific philosophy, namely that the exposure to beauty is not a luxury but a human necessity. The key to successful music education lies not only in technical excellence but in the ability of teachers to instill and cultivate a love of beautiful music in their students.
Starting with the 3rd grade, children can join Band. The school band consists of woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments, specifically flute, clarinet, trumpet, saxophone, trombone, bells, or drums.
A leadership organization comprised of 4th through 8th grade representatives serving as the voice of the student body. It is a cooperative effort of students who actively support student affairs of the school.
Under the direction of Mrs. Mara Fleming, there are four main branches of the Fatima Youth Ministry:
