Fenwick Alum Goes International! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/646/fenwick-alum-goes-international https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/646/fenwick-alum-goes-international Fenwick Alum Goes International!

FENWICK ALUM GOES INTERNATIONAL!

Emma Jones, Class of 2017, recently endeavored on a trip of a lifetime to Taiwan. The Cincinnati USA New Taipei City Taiwan Student Exchange program brought a group of 15 American students from Cincinnati to our “Sister City” in Taiwan, New Taipei City. This trip was Emma’s second exchange program trip. She went to China last summer with a different program, but she admits that Taiwan was her favorite! Emma’s experience gave her a new outlook on life, education and the world, literally!

Emma’s trip consisted of one week in school and the following week exploring one of the largest cities in Taiwan, New Taipei City.  Through her first week Emma had the opportunity sit through all of the classes the school had to offer. Donned in the traditional uniform of the school (seen above), she was able to learn how the New Taipei City culture teaches the subjects of math, geography, biology and home economics. Her favorite part of the school experience…. Napping! The culture has very rigorous curriculum and an almost 8-hour school day, so after lunch, they get “Quiet Time”, where students are given 30 minutes to lay their heads down and dream. Emma had one word to describe Quiet Time, simply “awesome!” Although we have shorter school days, Emma believes that a student’s load in the United States is equal to that in Taiwan, so she thinks that Quiet Time would be a valuable additional to school programs in the United States. She went on to add that after nap time and lunch, she found it intriguing that everyone has to brush their teeth to enforce and encourage good habits in their everyday lives.

Over the two weeks, Emma enjoyed being hosted by two different families and being guided by her student exchange partner. Both close to her age, her host students, Grace and Jasmine, both could speak fluent English and were very enthusiastic about hosting Emma. While not all members of the host families could speak English well, they all made Emma’s journey more meaningful by welcoming her with love and sharing their favorite parts of the city with her. The families and the friends they introduced to Emma were the backbone of her cultural experience. They took her to all of the famous sites, including the tallest building in Taiwan, Taipei 101 and to a local National Park were they explored a live active volcano. The families were also as enthusiastic about indulging Emma with all the local cuisine that they love, which Emma claimed to be some of the best food that she has ever had.

Emma’s Parents were also lucky enough to be chosen as chaperones for the trip and were able to experience life across the world with Emma. Emma returned from the trip with an entire extra suitcase full of gifts and memorabilia from her epic adventure and was kind enough to share some with the Bishop Fenwick staff.  She will soon start her journey to the University of Toledo to study Pharmaceutical Medicine. Emma has plans to travel to other places around the world in the future and is excited to see what calls her next. She is hoping to travel for service in the near future.

Please pray for Emma and her enthusiasm to learn. She is a prime example of the love of learning and passion that Bishop Fenwick instills in all of our students. We wish Emma the best of luck and look forward to hearing about more of her adventures to come!

Principal Collison's First Day! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/640/principal-collisons-first-day https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/640/principal-collisons-first-day Principal Collison's First Day!

While students are enjoying their summer vacation, Bishop Fenwick’s new Principal, Mr. Blane Collison has been preparing to take up his new duties as Principal/CEO. Above he is enjoying his new office Monday, which he quickly made his own to show his vibrant personality.

“Fenwick has a proud tradition of forming students in faith, knowledge and service,” states Principal Collison, “I look forward to continuing to build on the rich history of the school's success, and working with faculty and staff to strengthen every aspect of a Fenwick education for the benefit of every student.”

 Mr. Collison has 23 years of experience in Catholic education. Most recently, he was Principal of Archbishop Moeller High School in Cincinnati for 14 years. Cincinnati Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr appointed him Principal/CEO of Bishop Fenwick in April upon the recommendation of the Board.

At the recent 65th Annual Fenwick Festival, Collison was introduced to the community and had the opportunity to network with his new Fenwick family. Collison’s dynamic leadership will be a breath of fresh air for our community that has been in limbo since the resignation of our previous Principal.

“This will be my fourteenth year at Fenwick High School.  The school and community are in good shape, with great momentum moving forward,” Bishop Fenwick Assistant Principal, Jason Umberg says, “In the short time I have gotten to know Blane, I look forward to working at his side as we continue to make Bishop Fenwick High School the pinnacle of student growth--Spiritual and Academic.”

We are gearing up for positive changes and opportunities to establish our everyday mission of Catholic education with the help of Mr. Collison. While he has a lot on his plate at the start, the Fenwick community and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati are confident in Collison’s ability to steer the school to further success! If you see Mr. Collison around, please introduce yourself and welcome him to his new Fenwick family!

Festival Participants: THANK YOU! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/639/festival-participants-thank-you https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/639/festival-participants-thank-you Festival Participants: THANK YOU!

Festival Participants: THANK YOU!

The entire Bishop Fenwick Festival Committee was overwhelmed by the outpour of care and generosity that made the 2017 festival one of the most energetic and well attended festivals in 65 years!

While a lack of volunteers was a worry at the beginning of the weekend with only 50% of the volunteer spots accounted for, our giving community stepped up and made it happen in huge ways! Many families worked double shifts, back to back, invited friends and family to come help out, and reached out to their communities to result in the highest number of volunteers from outside our Fenwick community of any festival before. Our volunteers were the heart of this festival and their support made it all happen.

The festival was also packed with all of our great attendees who provided fun and profit to benefit our school. The Basket Booth sold a record breaking 27,675 tickets and the kids games accumulated 10,242 total tickets in just two days! The NEW $10,000 or FREE TUITION Grand Raffle, won by Kathy Rosenberg and her “10 Watts Trivia” Team, raised $12,000 from the efforts of our thousands of sellers in total.

The donations for the Basket Booth, the Grand Raffle, food, entertainment and everything else that the festival involves also reflect this capacity. The committee ought to also recognize all of our fantastic entertainment of the weekend including the 33 People, DanceKids Dance Studio, Center Stage Academy of Performing Arts, We Thee Ubiquitous, The BACKdoor Band and all of the contestants in the first Fenwick Festival Car Cruise-In.

Despite the disadvantages of the weather on Friday, the 65th year of the festival was a huge success… because of you! All of you saw our need and came out with compassion, integrity, faith and likeness in service; the perfect definition of our Fenwick family.

Thank you to everyone who was a part of the festival. Our mission was made possible by your passion for Bishop Fenwick.

God Bless & Go Falcons!

Bishop Fenwick Participates in Partners In Mission Conference! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/638/bishop-fenwick-participates-in-partners-in-mission-conference https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/638/bishop-fenwick-participates-in-partners-in-mission-conference Bishop Fenwick Participates in Partners In Mission Conference!

Last week three of our staff members proudly represented Bishop Fenwick at the Partners in Mission Conference in Boston. Director of Communications & Marketing, Natalie Hansman, Robin Blank, Assistant Director of Development, and Andrea Wyatt, Development Specialist, attended the week-long conference that focused on developing excellence in Catholic school advancement and leadership. The women gained insight into new comprehensive and effective solutions to address challenges unique to Catholic education.

 

“This conference is an opportunity for Catholic School Advancement and Enrollment professionals to learn, engage, and network among colleagues. Even better, the 20+ presenters were available for individual meetings during the conference and for post conference consultations”, says Robin Blank, Assistant Director of Development and three year alumni of the conference. She also remarked, “Bishop Fenwick made a significant investment for Natalie, Andrea, and I to attend which demonstrates the commitment of the school toward professional development.  We are anxious to share what we have learned and implement new programs for improved outcomes.”

 

The ladies returned with specialized training of best practices in subjects that included branding, general and target marketing, enrollment management, recruitment, retention, advancement operations, annual fund and capital campaigns, major gifts, communications, stewardship and volunteer management. Partners in Mission educated them with proven strategies and practices to advance Fenwick’s mission of growth and excellence.

 

“It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my career.  As a newcomer to education, the conference was of critical assistance to help me be successful at Bishop Fenwick. I acquired strategies and processes to prepare our community for positive change and growth”, stated Director of Communications & Marketing, Natalie Hansman.  Hansman continued by saying, “I am returning from the conference with a better understanding of how all aspects of our organization can interface cohesively with one another to make our school and community stronger. I am especially excited to have Principal Collison on board, who brings dynamic leadership to Fenwick.”

 

Along with dozens of rewarding sessions through the day, the conference gave them opportunities to explore Boston. The ladies joined conference members to network at events like a river cruise, a Red Sox game and an historic trolley ride and tour.

The winner of the $10,000 or FREE TUITION Grand Raffle was Kathy Rosenberg and the winner of the Future Falcon Booths $150 Amazon Gift Card was Blake Temming from St. Francis de Sales! Incoming Principal, Mr. Blane Collison, was introduced at the festival and picked the winning Grand Raffle ticket!

The Rosenberg Family and 5 other Bishop Fenwick couples won money at the Parents Club Trivia Night last month under the name “The 10 Watts”, so decided to put it all towards the Grand Raffle… and won!!

The Basket Booth sold a record breaking 27,675 tickets and the kid’s tickets accumulated 10,242 total in just two days! Check out the top five popular baskets and our photo gallery below:

Bishop Fenwick and the Festival Volunteer Committee would also like to thank all of our amazing volunteers that made the festival possible this year. At the start of the festival, only 50% of the volunteer spots were accounted for, especially the Saturday night shifts, but as shifts started, our giving community stepped up and made it happen. Some families worked double shifts, back to back to satisfy the desperate need. This year we had more volunteers than ever that came from outside our Fenwick community and helped to better the cause and make the weekend one of the best yet in 65 years!

Falcon Faith: Four Fenwick Students Attended Abide Conference! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/633/falcon-faith-four-fenwick-students-attended-abide-conference https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/633/falcon-faith-four-fenwick-students-attended-abide-conference Falcon Faith: Four Fenwick Students Attended Abide Conference!

There were four Fenwick students who attended the Abide Conference at the College of Mount St. Joseph on June 14th through the 18th. This is a discipleship conference put on by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati to form and commission high school youth to root their lives in Christ through His Church, and to share this Christian joy with others as missionary disciples.

Abide is unique! A typical teen conference lasts three days (at most). Abide was five days. Teens are not only taught about who Jesus is, they live a daily personal encounter with Him. This was accomplished through daily mass, frequent opportunities for confession, adoration, worship and authentic Christian community. It did not stop there… Teens were guided and challenged to experience intentional discipleship, both personally and within Christian community through dynamic workshops and presentations.

Abide’s pinnacle experience presented a unique opportunity: to go into the world as a missionary disciple. They did this by going to downtown Cincinnati to meet neighbors and share the abundance of love and joy that results from a life rooted in discipleship. Abide attendees experienced what it means to live a life so infused with Christian joy, that it leaves no other option but to be a gift for others.

The conference included Mass with Archbishop Schnurr. To learn more about the conference please visit: https://www.abidecinci.com.

The Fenwick students at the conference were (as pictured):

Nate Louder, Class of 2020 (St. Max)

Natalie Conner, Class of 2020 (St. Max)

Lauren Falk, Class of 2019 (St. Susanna)

Anna Falk, Class of 2019 (St. Susanna)

Falcons Basketball Team Victorious at Capital University Camp! https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/630/falcons-basketball-team-victorious-at-capital-university-camp https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/630/falcons-basketball-team-victorious-at-capital-university-camp Falcons Basketball Team Victorious at Capital University Camp!

This past weekend, our Bishop Fenwick Varsity and Junior Varsity Basketball teams participated in the Capital University Basketball Camp in Columbus, Ohio. Both teams remained undefeated the entire weekend over teams from all across the state and won their division’s tournament championship!

The Capital Basketball Camp is designed to give full attention to each camper. The camp philosophy assures that the fundamentals of basketball are taught and each camper receives the individual instruction necessary to become a better player. The camp staff consists of top college and high school coaches from Ohio, as well as current Capital University players and the entire Capital basketball staff.

Bishop Fenwick Theiss Family Memorial Fund Closed, But Donations Can Still Be Made!

The Bishop Fenwick Community did it again! We have successfully reached our funding goal for the Theiss Family Memorial Fund. The GoFundMe has now reached $12,050. This is $2,050 over the $10,000 funeral costs funding goal which will go toward assisting the family with other expenses. Bishop Fenwick along with the St. Henry community has ended the GoFundMe campaign. Although the GoFundMe has closed, if you would like to donate to the Guardian Angels Fund in honor of Noah, please contact the Bishop Fenwick Development Office at 513-727-1500. 

Thank you all for your incredible giving! We will publish more information on the fund and how it will help the family soon.

Bishop Fenwick's Theiss Family Memorial Fund https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/626/bishop-fenwicks-theiss-family-memorial-fund https://fenwickfalcons.org/news/626/bishop-fenwicks-theiss-family-memorial-fund Bishop Fenwick's Theiss Family Memorial Fund

As a Christian community, the Gospel calls us to care for those who are mourning and to support one another in the midst of trials. As you know, we recently lost a beloved member of our Fenwick Family, Noah Theiss. We have become aware that the Theiss family, on top of losing Noah, are at this time struggling to cover his funeral costs. Our Falcon Talons also call us to action in such circumstances, especially Compassion and Service. Please consider supporting the Theiss family at this difficult time.

If you feel called to help ease the suffering of the Theiss family, please visit the gofundme link provided below. The monetary goal of $10,000 will cover all funeral costs. Any donations beyond that will go to assisting the family with other expenses. Their only family vehicle was involved in the accident. If anyone has a car they would like to donate, they may contact the Development Office at 513-727-1500.

 Please continue to keep the Theiss family and all those affected by the loss of Noah in your prayers.

Bishop Fenwick Chemistry students had the unique opportunity and pleasure to tour, do activities and engage with researchers at the new AK Steel Innovation Center.  Very few groups have gone through this new center other than congressmen, trustees and other high profile individuals.   Students learned about steel making and the chemistry behind it. Another group of chemistry students attended the Chemistry Education & Career Day at Miami University at Middletown.  Several students participated in labs, listened to presentations and met many people in chemistry careers in industry. Very impressive!
