“Respect the Past, Celebrate the Present, Build the Future”

Summer has turned to Fall since the last edition of the “Voice” and my initial letter to you. We know that we have a long time to go until we see the warm weather again but we are off to a great start of the 2011-2012 school year!

Our theme for the year has been a focal point for all we are doing and has generated a lot of excitement from our preschool classes through our elementary grades and up through our high school. We are seeing many examples of how we respect where we came from, celebrate the accomplishments of our current students and staff, and build a bright future for years to come. Each day brings about additional opportunities to “see” what we “believe” in action. Our student-athletes are competing with success, maintaining quality grades, and exhibiting great sportsmanship at all levels of competition. Our staff have started a comprehensive planning process for long-term school improvement. Our volunteers are stepping up and supporting day-to-day needs along with annual events. Our pastors are sharing school information and events through the weekly bulletins. Our parents are developing new activities so our younger students can be involved at middle school and high school events. Our students are living their faith and leading within the school community and outside in the “real world”. There is an energy and optimism and it is contagious. We are implementing a Tech Cohort with K-12 staff using ipad2 resources within 20 pilot classrooms. We are starting a student “Excel” Club in association with our local Exchange Club, the first in Ohio and only the seventh in the nation. We are providing eighth grade students the opportunity to come to SJCC and take Algebra, Spanish, and Science classes for high school credit. We are praying a common BHCS prayer each day at each campus. We are praying for all athletes before each football, volleyball, and basketball event we host. We are having combined pep rallies at SJCC so our students in grades four through eight can join in and catch the spirit. We are working under a balanced budget that was submitted to the Diocese and we are working to pay off all loans and debts. We are accepting ideas from stakeholders who care about our kids, our facilities, and our faith. There is a synergy and momentum and it is moving us forward. So, we need you and your continued prayers to keep the ball rolling in the right direction. We need you to prayerfully reflect and respectfully consider a donation to the Annual Fund that will benefit ALL our students. We need you to join us and encourage us and challenge us to complete our long-range plan for system-wide growth. We need you to know how much we appreciate all you have done in the past, are doing now, and will do in the future. Thank you and may God bless you!

Priestly Duties This summer, St. Ann and St. Joseph parishes welcomed Fr. Mike Zacharias as their pastor. The Bishop Hoffman Catholic School also welcomed him to the Governing Board. BHCS is blessed to have Fr. Mike along with Fr. Ken Lill, pastor of Sacred Heart, and Fr. Chris Bazar, BHCS school chaplain, to serve our schools’ needs. Fr. Mike loves the unique challenges of being the pastor of two parishes and enjoys talking with students on his weekly visits to the classrooms. His last parish school was only grades K-6. BHCS gives him the opportunity to once again engage in lively discussions with junior high and high school age students. Fr. Mike, Fr. Ken, and Fr. Chris rotate celebrating the weekly school Masses and Fr. Mike and Fr. Ken share the morning Mass schedule for the three parishes. The Fremont Catholic community is in good and very busy hands.

Magdalene (Madge) Hottinger “Respects the Past” In the 1920’s, many people had no running water, television, convenience stores, or automobiles. The cost of a new Ford Runabout was about $265.00 and the cost of a loaf of bread was 12 cents. Women were finally given the right to vote in 1920. One of these women is Madge Hottinger ‘26. At the age of 103, Madge is SJCC’s oldest living alumna. Currently, Madge lives in Elmwood Assisted Living in Green Springs, Ohio. Madge is described in her yearbook as, “cheerful, obliging, and deserving of confidence – that’s Madge. She has a friendly smile and a kind word for everyone, and she is ever ready for something new.” Madge’s graduating class had twenty-one graduates and her high school building was the present day St. Joseph campus. Madge remembers her high school days, but she also reflects on comforting memories from the 1920’s. Madge vividly recalls how her father built boats that traveled on the Sandusky River. She remembers her summers on Catawba Island at Camp Yukita with her childhood friends. After graduation from St. Joseph High School, Madge was a mail order make-up consultant for fifty years. Madge’s Catholic heritage continues today. She is still a member of Sacred Heart Church, and is proud to be one of the original members. She continues to receive the Eucharist and remains strong in her faith. There have been many changes in the world since Madge graduated from St. Joseph High School, but one thing remains unchanged-a strong commitment to Catholic Education in Fremont.

Scott Knisely “Celebrates the Present” By Aaron Miley Staib (Class of 2012) “Celebrate the present” is a phrase so commonly used in the BHCS community that some people have begun to incorporate it into their everyday lives. One such person is our own Mr. Scott Knisely ’00. Mr. Knisely is the Head Coach of the SJCC football team as well as the SJCC boys tennis team. He also teaches Religion to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students at the St. Joseph campus. First, Mr. Knisely respects the past, drawing from his own experiences here at BHCS and the lessons he has learned from those around him. By incorporating these lessons, he helps to guide his students in celebrating the present. Mr. Knisely looks for ways to inspire his athletes and students to celebrate the present every day. He stresses, “each person has been given a great opportunity here at BHCS and that we should all make the most of it while we can.” Mr. Knisely particularly likes to remind those with whom he interacts that we are all part of a family. This helps students realize that BHCS is not a set of buildings, but a living network of thousands of alumni, faculty, and classmates. By respecting the past and celebrating the present with his students, Mr. Knisely works every day to build a stronger future for BHCS.

Lisa Swaisgood “Builds the Future” By Zachary Yeckley (Class of 2013) For the 2011-2012 school year, Mr. Cullen and the staff have shared the motto ”Respect the Past,Celebrate the Present, Build the Future.” Mrs. Lisa Swaisgood (Light ‘80), a preschool teacher at Bishop Hoffman Catholic School Sacred Heart Campus, has been living and contributing to this motto for many years. I was fortunate to have Mrs. Swaisgood as a preschool teacher twelve years ago, and I remember her as a very caring and understanding teacher. I also had the pleasure to ask her several questions about how she continues to “Build the Future” at Bishop Hoffman Catholic School. Q: What/Who inspired you to become a teacher? A: Inspiration-- I do not think it was one person that inspired me but a combination of support and life skills that I received from the years spent at Sacred Heart and SJCC. I always enjoyed working with children and my parents encouraged me to do what I love to do! Q: What was one your most rewarding moments as a teacher? A: There are so many rewarding moments! I still get “chills” as the children talk and sing about God with hope and faith in their voices. It certainly makes the future look so much brighter. One rewarding moment that brought tears to my eyes came from one of my more challenging students. He was aggressive and angry from the first day of school. Other parents suggested to me that I should not have to deal with him. We moved through the year and his behavior slowly but surely improved. On one of the last days of school, he made me a picture and wrote some “squiggly lines” above it. He asked me if I knew what that said. I told him to tell me, and he said, “Thank you for teaching me how to love.” I hugged him with tears in my eyes and thanked him for teaching me not to EVER give up on a child. Q: What is your favorite hobby outside of teaching? A: I love to be outside, to play volleyball, and to spend time with friends and family.

F Y I Flash Make A Difference Day Project Update Last spring, I told you about my Make A Difference Day Project. I collect and donate aluminum can tabs to Ronald McDonald House in Toledo every year. In 10 years with your help, I have donated 2,271 lbs. of tabs. My best year was in 2006 when I collected 431 lbs. That was until this year. With all of your kind and generous support, I delivered 807 lbs. of tabs to Ronald McDonald House during their annual OcTABerfest! They were very grateful for the donation. The tabs are recycled by them and the money is used to purchase food for families staying there. I encourage you to visit Ronald McDonald House in Toledo. See for yourself the valuable resource that the facility is for our community. While you are there, smile and know that you helped fund the comforts that they provide for families staying there by sending your tabs to me. Thanks again for all of your support. Lindsay Darr ‘13
