Little FlowerCatholicSchool History

1949-2016

2015 Accredited as Catholic School of Excellence

 This spirit of treasuring the past while using the best of today, and looking to tomorrow defines everything about Little Flower. The school was originally founded in 1949 when the church was already twenty-five years old.

 In 1999, as everyone prepared for the millennium, Little Flower celebrated her 50th anniversary and Little Flower Church celebrated her 75th.  The auditorium, beautified and updated, was renamed Father Cashman Hall. The relics of Saint Theresa herself, on pilgrimage, made a visit to Little Flower in 2000.

As a school that predates the accreditation process itself, Little Flower has welcomed the opportunity to define and present ourselves in the previous re-accreditation years since 1973. Little Flower students and teachers continue to attend mass every Friday morning where they are joined by parishioners and many parents.  In the classroom, the students and teachers pray traditional prayers and learn the latest and most up-to-date facts using SMART Boards™ and computer projectors.

The school year 2013-14 began with the exciting arrival of Chrome books. Through continual commitment to professional learning communities, teachers have created online, networked classrooms, which blend digital and traditional learning.

 

 

Due to the generosity of the school community and the dedication of the Little Flower faculty and staff, the school continues to support service projects throughout the year.  Students and their families are especially generous to the St. Vincent de Paul Society with continual collection of canned foods. The Student Service Club plans fundraising activities to support Catholic Outreach, the Holy Childhood Association, Archbishop’sCharity Drive, Respect Life, Broward Outreach, Treats for Soldiers, and the Broward Chapter of the Humane Society.

 

Little Flower continues its rich history of spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical development.  LFS students have represented the school in the State of Florida Science Fair finals and the National Geographic Society State Geography Finals. Students participate and are awarded top honors in local and national art contests. A record number of students are chosen for Duke University Talent Search, National Science League, National Math League, and National Geography League.  Students annually represent the school in the Miami Herald Spelling. Little Flower Leopards achieve top rated standing in All Broward Catholic Conference sports. Our eighth grade students are accepted to St. Thomas Aquinas High School, Chaminade Madonna College Preparatory, Archbishop McCarthy High School, Cardinal Gibbons High School, Monsignor Pace High School, McFatter Magnet School for Technology and Computer Science, and American Heritage High School.
