School blesses backpacks before classes start

Posted: Updated:

 As kids get ready to head back to school, All Saints Catholic School in Rossford hosted a blessing of the backpacks for students on Sunday.

It also gave parents and students a chance to meet the new principal, Teri Fischer before classes resume on August 20.

Fischer is no strange to the area. She grew up here and has been working in the Toledo Catholic Diocese for 12 years. "I'm most excited to meet the kids and help in building the community. We have a lot of great things going at the school."

The school hopes the blessing of the backpacks helps make the transition from vacation to school a bit easier.
