SEPTEMBER 23, 2020

Fisher Catholic Community,

Amazingly, we have reached the halfway point of the 1st Quarter! Please make sure to check with your students on the progress they are making in their courses and to be sure that they are successfully keeping up with all expectations.

Yesterday, we had our first Penance Service of the year.  Thank you to Father Tomson, Father Eilerman, Father Reade, Father Gideon and Father Walter for taking their time to hear confessions from our students.  It is always wonderful to experience the support given to our school by all of our surrounding Pastors. 

Please join us for our first socially distanced all-school Mass next Tuesday 9/29 at 1:00.  Please wear your mask and sign-in at the front desk if you plan to attend. We will also have a guest speaker from the Pregnancy Decision Health Center after Mass to detail our upcoming "Baby Bottle Drive" sponsored by the Irish4Life club. 

Next week (9/28 - 10/3) we will be celebrating "Homecoming Week", albeit under the circumstances of our new normal. The students are encouraged to dress up for the theme of each school day. Of course the theme for Tuesday will be Mass uniform.  We will also be voting on a homecoming court, as well as honoring those court members, at an outdoor pep rally on Friday and the home football game Saturday night.  There will be no homecoming dance this year. 

Congratulations to Coach Luke Thimmes on his first varsity head coaching victory!  The FC football team defeated FCA on Saturday, 14-6.  The team looks for two in a row this Friday at Bishop Rosecrans.  The cross country team continued their success this past week in Belpre and is looking forward to the meet at Lancaster High School this Thursday!  Congratulations to our female athletes for a great Tuesday, as the volleyball team defeated FCA and the soccer team defeated Bishop Ready.  Way to go girls!

Finally, thank you to all who participated in the Student Council car wash on Saturday! Hopefully, you are still enjoying your clean car. The Student Council appreciates your generosity and support! A special thank you to Mr. Froggy's for sponsoring this event.  We don't have the final numbers, but it was one of the biggest fundraisers the Student Council has ever had!  Congratulations to all our student government members. God Bless and GO IRISH!

Blessings,
Jim Globokar
