An Important Announcement from Mr. Jasinski

Dear Irish Families,
Over the past few months, we have had many valuable meetings and conversations with our stakeholders.  We learned a great deal from these formal and informal conversations, however, one of the most important things that we have learned is that our student discipline is out of date and sometimes ineffective.  I am not sure how long this model has been in place, however, the use of demerits and write ups (warnings) that build towards a greater consequence; in many instances has not been a successful deterrent in curbing some student behaviors.
That said, it has been determined that this summer, we will be reconstructing our discipline procedures.  We will develop a discipline policy that aligns with the values of the Catholic Church, serves our school and students and their needs, is fair, and creates a positive environment in our school and school community.
Thank you to all who have shared their thoughts, ideas and concerns on these and all other matters. As always, …

Announcement to All FC Families

Dear Irish,
Please join us in welcoming Ashley Logsdon as our 10th and 11th(partial) grade Theology teacher for the remainder of the year.  Miss Logsdon received her Bachelor of Science in Biological studies from the University of Notre Dame, is a Graduate of the Notre Dame ACE program for teachers, and a Masters Degree in Theological studies from Boston College.  Miss Logsdon previously taught at Tampa Catholic High School before moving back home to Pickerington.  We are fortunate to have Miss Logsdon available to join us for the remainder of the school year.  Unfortunately, she has accepted a full time position at Bishop Hartley for next school year.  Miss Logsdon will begin on Monday.
Thank You,
Joe Jasinski

Families of Fisher Catholic

Families of Fisher Catholic,
I am encouraging teachers and staff to allow for open and productive conversations regarding any concerns students have about their safety, the safety of our school and the greater conversation about school safety that is occuring throughout our nation. 

Fisher Catholic had no direct threat whatsoever today and canceling school was not necessary. Holding class and providing a normal day of learning and growth seemed most appropriate in the wake of all that is happening. 

As you have experienced with how I determine delays and snow days, I have no greater concern than the safety of our students. In terms of the safety and security of our school, there is only one point of entry. This point of entry is locked with those entering being monitored very closely. There are no other entry options. We have practiced our responses in the event of an emergency.

If at any time, we feel that our students safety is put at risk, we will take appropriate action within the sch…

Flu Season

Dear Irish Parents,

As you probably know, this flu season has been one of the worst in years and we are starting to see the effects here at FC.  I know that students love coming to school and do not want to miss class time and risk falling behind but we need your help in controlling the spread of this virus.  

If your child has any of the following symptoms, please keep them home until they are better:
Fever
Chills/Body Aches
Vomiting
Diarrhea

If they come to school and exhibit these symptoms, we will be calling parents to have them picked up.  I know it is inconvenient to some when a child stays home but we have to do everything we can to prevent the spread of this flu virus.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Joe Jasinski
Principal
