JANUARY 13, 2021

Fisher Catholic Community,

We have had a great week and a half to start off the 2021 year! This included Eucharistic Adoration and a small Open House for incoming 8th graders. Please continue to let people know about Fisher Catholic and influence them to set up a meeting with me to discuss enrollment and tuition. The main concern of families who don't consider FC is the tuition cost. I am always willing to sit down with families and figure out how we can help them in being part of the Irish family. We are certainly looking forward to our Class of 2025 (feel old?).

Thank you to our students (with the support of you) for their cooperation with our dress code initiatives. The students have looked great this week!

Congratulations to our boys' basketball team on 4 great wins last week including a double OT victory over rival Berne Union Saturday night! Another congratulations to our girls' basketball team for being ranked #10 in the state of Ohio. Good luck in your matchup with #1 Berne Union this Friday at Fisher Catholic. Bowling season is off to a fun start! Make sure to check out the team on Facebook Live during their matches. The Quiz Team will begin league play (finally!) at the end of this month and beginning of February. Good luck to them! Finally, our musical rehearsals have begun for the March show. We are excited to see our students perform in two short months.

A reminder that we have no school on Monday. Enjoy the extended weekend! God Bless, Go Irish and Go Browns!

Blessings,
Jim Globokar

ST. BERNADETTE NEWS

Dave Orsborn, the Assistant Director and Studio Manager of St. Gabriel Catholic Radio, will be offering the Spirituality Uncorked reflection Thursday at 7:00pm at St. Bernadette. The monthly meeting is a short spiritual talk on current Catholic issues and time to discuss and engage with others. We will meet in the gym to be able to space ourselves out. His topic will be a Catholic approach to consuming media. Come and bring friends! Due to the nature of the event, 21+ only.

QUIZ TEAM NEWS


The FC Quiz Team continues to practice and prepare for the first live,
in-person competition of the 2021 season. We will compete on February 3 (in just three weeks.) The Mid-State Academic League decided to hold competitions in-person at the schools in the Mid-State Academic League under very strict rules: Only 5 members of a school team may attend. Everyone must wear a mask. There will be six foot distancing in the competition room. The room will be sanitized before use. We do not use buzzers! No parents, other team members or any observers. Just 12 in the room plus the Reader.
I will let you know how that goes.

Lynn Stevenson
Coach
