Bishop Leibold Visit to Bishop Fenwick! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/689/bishop-leibold-visit-to-bishop-fenwick https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/689/bishop-leibold-visit-to-bishop-fenwick Bishop Leibold Visit to Bishop Fenwick!

Bishop Fenwick hosted a group of 7th graders from Bishop Leibold to come and explore our school in this time of future decision making for the group. The students visited and participated in our Engineering, Social Studies and Language classes. The group then enjoyed lunch with some Bishop Fenwick students and teachers. At lunch, the Falcon cheerleaders performed and we even had some students do their own Leibold Eagle’s cheer!

We look forward to continuing a great relationship with Bishop Leibold and their families and hope to see all these smiling faces in our halls again soon.

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; 
He leads me beside still waters;
He restores my soul. He leads me in 
right paths For His Name's sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil;
For you are with me;
Your rod and Your staff - they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies, You anoint my head with oil;
My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life. And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord My whole 
life long.
[Psalm 23:1-6; NRSV]

Falcons Mens Soccer Supports Breast Cancer Awareness with $1,800 to Family in Need! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/683/falcons-mens-soccer-supports-breast-cancer-awareness-with-1800-to-family-in-need https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/683/falcons-mens-soccer-supports-breast-cancer-awareness-with-1800-to-family-in-need Falcons Mens Soccer Supports Breast Cancer Awareness with $1,800 to Family in Need!

 

For the past three years, the Bishop Fenwick Falcons Mens Soccer Team has been wearing pink and sponsoring families for Breast Cancer Awareness, this year they found a family to personally help and pray for, again. This idea came straight from the compassionate players, who connected Dan Lueking, Head Coach, with the Hardesty family.

Elaine Hardesty was first diagnosed with breast cancer in March of 2012. She went through chemotherapy and was cancer free in January 2013. Hardesty was then diagnosed a second time with brain cancer in 2014, she then exemplified her strength by beating the brain cancer at the end of 2014. Recently, in September of 2017, four more new spots of the disease emerged.

Monday, the Falcons Mens Soccer Team hosted Elaine and her husband Bob to a special dinner ceremony in her honor. The dinner was donned with everything pink and was served by the athletes in the school cafeteria. The boys also presented the family with a $1,800 check to help with their expenses. The family then joined the team for a victorious match against Chaminade Julienne.

Elaine has been a school bus driver for Madison Local Schools for the past 19 years. Her husband Bob is a truck driver, who has been her main support system during her illness. They also have a son, Gage, who is early twenties.

“It is events like these that make me happy that we sent our son to Fenwick.” Bishop Fenwick Parent, Amy King stated, “The passion that the students at Fenwick have for causes like Breast Cancer Awareness is inspiring to see, these high school students exemplify the ability to make changes in the world at any age.”

Lueking and his team plan to continue this program to become a tradition. The Falcons Womens Volleyball team also collected funds for Breast Cancer Awareness through their Hit For A Cure event last week. They had a raffle and a bake sale to support the cause.

Meet Mr. Hanes! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/675/meet-mr-hanes https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/675/meet-mr-hanes Meet Mr. Hanes!

Meet Mr. Hanes!

Bishop Fenwick was delighted to welcome Robert Hanes as a student teacher in our History Department this year. Robert is assisting Mr. Matt Mulligan with all of his history classes and has been taking the lead in Mulligan’s US History class. Robert is studying to receive his Master’s Degree in Social Studies and Education at Miami University. A Cincinnati Hills ChristianAcademy grad, Robert wanted to venture into Catholic education after student teaching at Eaton High School.

Robert has taken a strong role in the Bishop Fenwick Radio Club. The Radio Club consists of a group of students that put on an athletic radio show during home games. While still premature, the goal of the group is to live broadcast from all of the home games and even away games! Robert has a goal to create a program that consists more than just radio to include video broadcasting, social media engagement and growth outside of just athletics.

Robert is a West Chester native who recently moved right down the street from campus in Middletown. In his free time, he runs his gaming website “Game Haus,” which highly involves the work he is teaching students in the Radio Club. That being said, Robert REALLY enjoys sports! Most Sundays you will find him spending time with his family watching his favorite sports teams.

The 12th Annual Falcon Force Band Competition will be held this weekend on Saturday, September 16th, 2017 at 4:00 pm. Bishop Fenwick’s 60-acre campus will host 14 schools that expand over Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

This tradition began in 2006 and was then conducted by current Bishop Fenwick Assistant Principal and former Bishop Fenwick Band Director, Jason Umberg. “12 years ago we had half of the number of teams that we will have this weekend!” Assistant Principal Umberg states, “This was my dream that is still reality and making a strong name for itself in the competition arena due to our passionate students and families.”

Current Band Director, Larry Mulligan ’10, anticipates over 1,400 visitors to campus, and also welcome two fellow archdiocese schools: McNicholas and LaSalle. Fenwick Alumna, Laura Bukosky (class of '03) will lead the West Carrollton Marching Band in the AAA division. The Miamisburg Viking Marching Band, Grand Champion of four straight Force Competitions (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016) will return to defend its title. 

“We cherish every opportunity to bring so many visitors on our beautiful campus, so the competition is always something the entire school looks forward too.” Says Band Director Mulligan, “Schools love this competition because of our facilities, workers, students and the way that the competition is ran. This is highly visible as you watch the competition.”

All results from The Force competition can be found on the Mid-States Band Association web page at www.midstatesba.org. A schedule of more local competitions can also be found at the Mid-States Band Association site.

Bishop Fenwick is so proud to have our girl’s soccer team participate in the 9/11 Memorial Walk at the University of Cincinnati this morning! Participants were challenged to climb 2,071 steps in 56 minutes — symbolic of the 110 floors of each of the World Trade Center towers. These are the steps that first responders ran up to save lives only to give their own. The girls ran up and down the stadium stairs completing a circuit around the whole of the stadium. Breaks were observed throughout in observance of when key events transpired, such as when the second airplane struck the South Tower, the crashes of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and Flight 77 into the Pentagon, and concluding with the moment when the FAA grounded all flights over the continental U.S.

Over 100 tubes of toothpaste and 50 pounds of dental products have been donated to our Hurricane Relief Drive from local Dentist Offices! With the wrath of Hurricane Irma coming through Florida this weekend, Bishop Fenwick’s Hurricane Drive will be given to Matthew 25 Ministries for both Harvey and Irma by donating to their Disaster Relief Program.  

Matthew 25 Ministries has made great progress in Houston and surrounding areas that have been damaged. As early as yesterday the Disaster Response Team completed over 100 loads of laundry, distributed approximately 50 personal care kits, 300 rolls of toilet paper, 100 rolls of paper towels and 25 first aid and safety kits between Sugar Land and Richmond Texas. All of this relief came from our home town!

Hurricane Harvey continues to be one of the worst flooding events in US History, with up to 50 inches of rain in some areas. There have been thousands of water rescues and almost 7 million people affected by flooding. The damage of Irma is going to be another priority for the nation and our charitable efforts. Bishop Fenwick’s Drive will benefit both, if there are donations that you would like to make that are outside of the suggested donations listed on the link below, please still bring them in. We have donations like dog food, bedding, school supplies, children’s toys and electronics that will all be donated to the relief cause outside of Matthew 25 Ministries.

Please check out Matthew 25 Ministries progress and suggested donations: http://m25m.org/disaster/harvey17/

Talon Thursdays Return! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/663/talon-thursdays-return https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/663/talon-thursdays-return Talon Thursdays Return!

The first Talon Thursday was yesterday and Bishop Fenwick students were eager to get back to volunteering. We had students represented from every grade, getting to know each other, talking about their summers and getting the job done efficiently!  Thanks to our generous sponsor, Home City Ice, we are able to continue to help the people in need through St. Vincent De Paul. Every other Thursday students gather to make 200 bagged meals to distribute at St. Vincent’s. Talon Thursdays represent the way that our Talons are engaged in our students lives every day.

Sam Lewis ’19 : “Nothing like Mass in ‘God’s Country’” https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/662/sam-lewis-19-nothing-like-mass-in-gods-country https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/662/sam-lewis-19-nothing-like-mass-in-gods-country Sam Lewis ’19 : “Nothing like Mass in ‘God’s Country’”

Sam Lewis ’19 : “Nothing like Mass in ‘God’s Country’”

Junior Sam Lewis was honored to be selected to participate in the Saint George Trek this past summer. Every two years, the National Catholic Committee of Scouting chooses 70 Catholic Boy Scouts and Venture Crew members from across the nation to go on the Saint George Trek. The Trek took place at the Philmont Scout Ranch near Cimarron, New Mexico. The Cincinnati Archdiocese was allowed to nominate up to two candidates; Sam was the only student chosen! With the guidance of his father, Chris Lewis and Fenwick Alumna, Scott Walker, Sam spent the last year physically preparing for this Trek.

On the Trek, the students were split into crews, each with their own itinerary for the Trek. Sam’s crew consisted of 11 scouts along with Fr. Adam from Louisville, Kentucky, and Aaron, the groups seminarian. During the 16 days, the boys spent 11 days backpacking 95 miles through the Sangre de Cristo Range carrying all of their equipment, food and water, stopping inly once for supplies! While hiking, they had Mass daily, said the rosary, read scripture and spent time reflecting on what they can bring back to the community from their experience.

Thrilled is an understatement for how Sam felt about being part of the Trek. “Nothing like having Mass in ‘God’s Country’”, says Sam. He and Bishop Fenwick are very thankful to the Archdiocese to give this amazing student this opportunity. Sam looks forward to one day going back to St. George Trek as an adult and help guide other young men. Sam would also like to encourage other scouts to apply for the next Trek in 2019.

Sam Lewis is an Eagle Scout out of Middletown Sportsmen Club Troop 29 and has earned his Ad Altare Dei emblem.

New Digs for The New School Year! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/661/new-digs-for-the-new-school-year https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/661/new-digs-for-the-new-school-year New Digs for The New School Year!

New Digs for The New School Year!

While students and their families focused the end of the summer on school supplies and summer reading, faculty and staff were working on lesson plans, spreadsheets, calendars and more… BUT most fun for them, creating new learning spaces for their students. Several classrooms and offices look different this year with new, intriguing details adorning their walls and desks.

Mrs. Longworth, Mr. Lauer, the Development Office and Mrs. Oesterlin all made some changes to their rooms that are worth checking out:

Mrs. Longworth of the English Department added some splashes of color to the room and new art work on the walls. She wanted to bring focus to the authors that her classes would be covering this school year, so made a huge wall mural!

   

Mr. Lauer recently returned from the special school trip with students to Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii. From his trip, he proudly displays his authentic boomerang and New Zealand Haka ritual. He is hoping to intrigue students to participate in the next student centered trip.


The Development office ornamented their previously bare walls with murals and photos from the events they have hosted over the last year. The Development staff often hosts students through their Flex Bells and lunches if they ever need a quiet place to safely hang out and get work done. The new images on the wall reinstate the importance that the students will always have to the school, even as alumni. Donors and volunteers also enjoy the murals as an example of what they are donating too and working so hard for!

 

Mrs. Oesterlin spent a lot of her summer crafting up fun items to display in her classroom. All Christ centered, the religion teacher created a new prayer board, Fenwick based cross and wall decals that spell out on of her favorite affirmation, HOPE. All in Crimson and Gold, Oesterlin made the classroom that was temporarily hers last year, a permanent home for her this year.

  

There are also some great additions to the Spirit Wear Shop. New shirts, sweatshirts, pants and accessories are available every day during lunch to all students.

New School Year New Us! Go Falcons!
