The Skipper Scoop

Week of Match 4th


It's a new week Skippers! March is here and we are all anxiously waiting for spring to finally get here. The next three weeks leads us up to Spring Break and a wrap up of the 3rd quarter.

This past weekend was filled with bowling and fun! Mrs. Fischer and I took a road trip to Columbus to watch the boy's bowling team shine at the state championship. The boys and their coaches represented this village in such an amazing manner. Thanks so much for your display of sportsmanship and class.

A special thanks to the band for " clapping out" the bowling team on Friday as they left for Columbus.

Make it a great week!

Boy's Bowling

The Skipper boys bowling team headed to Columbus on Saturday for the State Championship. What a day! The boys came up a little short as far as the title, but they showed so much strength, sportsmanship, and heart! We has several families attend as well as current students, and alumni. For a small school, we sure got loud! Thanks Coach Rich and Coach Chipps for your guidance and determination. Thank you to our bowlers for a great season!!!

In an effort to openly communicate the happenings at Harding, morning announcements will now be on our website. The link will be housed under the "schools" tab. Our College Credit Plus kids as well as our Auburn kids can have easy access to announcements when they miss them. There is also the Skipper Scoop newsletter as well as Twitter @MrsRumbarger.

Career Exploration

Miss Felix took students out into the ""real world" last week exploring careers. They went to the Brown Aveda Institute which is a cosmetology, beauty, and esthetics school in Mentor. The next stop was a salon tour at Jenniffer and Company Salon and Spa. These kids were exposed to many different facets of this important industry. They were compliments at both locations which made Miss Felix and myself very proud.

MOMO Challenge

The Ohio Department of Education is recommending that school districts share information with parents to make them aware of the dangerous recent social media trend – The Momo Challenge.

The Momo Challenge has reportedly been found on numerous social media platforms and gaming sites – especially ones that are targeted for kids – with the purpose of luring children into participating in challenges that encourages self-harm and even suicide.

We recommend that parents address this topic with their children in a manner that is appropriate for your family. We’ve included a link that may help you address this topic with your children:

We also encourage students and parents to report any concerns about The Momo Challenge – or any other suspicious activity in or out of school - to staff members.
