The Skipper Scoop
Week of February 11th
I trust everyone had a good weekend. Snow is back and it's Valentine's week!
I stopped in at Rich Lanes on Friday night for Senior Night. Our seniors- Larry Clark, Aaron Wickland, and State Champion Bowler Emily Eldridge are an impressive group of young adults. In general, this bowling team is really talented. Together with Mr. Rich and Mr. Chipps, this team is going places!
Make it a great week!

Way to go Dr. Avram!
Erin Avram received the Jean P. Lentz Teachers Grant awarded by the Lake County Retired Teachers Association. This $200 grant will help fund a project for the Harding Physical Science students who will be exploring the mathematical relationship between current, voltage, and resistance that forms the foundation of Ohm's Law. Congrats to Dr. Avram for working so hard to provide this for your students.
