The first full week is finished and we are off and running. I am hearing and seeing a lot of positive things from our students, staff, and community. We need to keep this positive culture going strong throughout the school year and beyond.
The faculty and staff looks forward to seeing you on Wednesday, September 2nd for Meet the Teacher Night. The night will be an "open house" style where you can come in as your time allows and meet all of your child's teachers, or just the ones you choose. We will have schedules available for you so you know who to visit. Please remember that this is not designed to be parent-teacher conferences, rather just an opportunity to meet the teachers, learn their expectations, and ask questions. Please be mindful of others who also want to meet the teachers and limit your time spent with a specific teacher. The event will begin at 6:00pm and conclude at 7:30pm. Please note that Mr. Holbrook will not be available as he will be with his daughter at the Sweet Corn Festival Parade as she is representing Fisher Catholic that evening. Also, Mrs. Rehrer will not be available due to the Marching Band performing in the same parade. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Our athletic teams are off to a great start. Be sure to come out and support the Irish some time in the next few weeks.
Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter as they will be updated often with exciting news and notes.
Sincerely, Joe Jasinski Principal

NEWS FROM THE THEOLOGY DEPARTMENT We will be having First Friday Eucharistic Adoration again this year and we would like to open it up to our community. It will be from 7 AM to 3 PM on Friday, September 4 in the FCHS chapel.
Please consider calling in to the main office (740-654-1231) and signing up for either a half hour or hour time slot so that we can be sure there is always someone "keeping watch" with our Lord throughout the day. This is a wonderful opportunity to pray for the students, faculty, staff, and families of FCHS.
POPE TRIP UPDATE The bus company needs our final payment for our trip to see Pope Francis, September 26-27. They included a twenty dollar fee per person to cover bus parking in Philadelphia. The total due is $175.00 per person. Please turn the payment in to Mr. Holbrook as soon as possible. Make checks payable to Fisher Catholic High School. If you have any questions you can email Mr. Holbrook (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the school (740-654-1231).
IRISH 4LIFE NEWS Mark your calendars for our first PANCAKE BREAKFAST of the year, September 20 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM in the FCHS cafeteria. Remember it is all you care to eat blueberry, chocolate chip or regular pancakes as well as sausage, coffee, milk, and juice! All it costs is your generous donation to help offset the cost of the annual March for Life in January.
If you would like to donate sausage, pancake mix, or money to cover these expenses we will gladly accept your charity.
