The Skipper Scoop

Week of May 4th, 2020


Happy Star Wars day to all you Skippers out there.I hope you enjoyed the weekend and spent some time outside. It's Teacher Appreciation Week and there has never been a time where we have appreciated our teachers more. They put together remote learning platforms overnight! They have refined lessons, adjusted office hours, read stories aloud, and even made music videos. Thanks Harding teachers, you inspire us all!

Thanks to James Clark from Rego's Brickhouse for helping feed our teacher's families an awesome meal this week. Not only is their food amazing, Mr. Clark and his generous spirit helps make Fairport the special place it is, thank you.

Be well!

Mrs. Rumbarger

The Class of 2020 woke up Friday morning to some jazzy yard signs to help celebrate their upcoming graduation. We know this won't be a traditional graduation for the seniors, but our staff is working hard behind the scenes to honor these special kids. Stay tuned- more to come!
