Greetings, Our Lady of Fatima School community and those interested in our offerings. My door is always open. Please contact me with your questions or concerns.
My devotion to OLF began more than 20 years ago when my oldest child started Kindergarten. All four of my children have attended with my youngest currently enrolled here. Since 2000, I have been continuously engaged as a parent volunteer, Parent Club officer and Diocesan Advisory Board member. I also spent four years teaching in our middle school program. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in agricultural business and teaching credential, both from Fresno State.
Since 1950, OLF has provided first-rate parochial education to families from Los Banos and our neighboring communities. OLF is affiliated with St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, located next to our campus. While St. Joseph’s parish leaders are active in the religious enrichment of our students, OLF operates under direct supervision from the Fresno Diocese Office of Catholic Education.
We offer a Preschool program for children ages 3 to 5 and K-8 instruction. OLF is fully accredited by the WASC Accrediting Commission and Western Catholic Educational Association. Beyond academics, OLF offers many opportunities for extra-curricular enrichment, including student government, sports and community service.
An OLF education prepares our graduates to emerge:
At OLF, the unwavering spirit and support of our parents, alumni and parish community are unmatched. Their fundraising and donations are essential to our school's operation. Beyond financial support, our parents and families are fixtures in daily school life. We are blessed to share in the fellowship of our close-knit campus community.
OLF is an exceptional place that has shaped many lives. Join me in ensuring that our longstanding tradition of excellence endures for many generations to come.
