The Skipper Scoop
Week of November 5th
I am looking forward to a great, productive week. We are fully engaged in the work of the second quarter. These teachers are really impressive. The discussions and experiences that they share with their students foster a real sense of community.
Hope to see you sometime this week. Whether it be at the fish fry tonight or Family Feud on Friday. Make it a great week!
The top 20 Juniors and the top 20 Sophomores are invited on a two day trip visiting Ohio colleges and universities. The trip is November 19th and 20th. We will be touring The University of Toledo, Tiffin University, the University of Findlay, The Ohio State University, and Mount Union University. It's a whirlwind trip to offer a glimpse into college life on a variety of campuses.
Dia de los Muertos
Mrs. Toomey and Mr. Cardina helped their Art and Spanish students celebrate the Day of the Dead on Friday. Who doesn’t want a taco at 9 am!?
Last Wednesday was a lot of fun. Costumed creatures wandered the halls to celebrate Halloween. This group of sixth graders are really bringing their costume game to new heights.

eXpressions is an art program sponsored by the Cleveland Clinic. High school students interested in pursuing a career in medicine can participate in an internship the summer of their graduating year. These interns conduct scientific/medical research and report their findings. The following school year, art students can go to the Cleveland clinic website and select which of the intern’s research they find interesting. They then interpret this research through visual art, music, dance, poetry and other forms of expression. Students find relevance (sometimes personal) by making connections between art and medical science and know that their expression can be viewed by not only our local audience but our global community as well. Student work that is selected by a panel of judges win recognition, images of their work published, professionally framed, as well as monetary prizes. On Friday, 10/26/18, a representative and photographer came to Fairport Harding to photograph the students who participated in the eXpressions program. They are: Matthew Oravecz, Morgan Braemer, Guin McKim, Tierny DiGidio, Breanna Cremeans, Haylee Moon, Brandi Ornelas, Hannah Powalie and Victoria Palmer. Thank you to Mrs Toomey for exposing the art kiddos to this wonderful experience.
Positive Behavior Supports- A Message from Mrs. Fischer
Encouraging good decision making and building sound character traits are at the core of the Fairport Harbor Schools philosophy and objectives. Harding's efforts and initiatives are through the PBIS ( Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) model. Harding High School regularly recognizes students for their positive behaviors and good decision making . Harding's four character traits are: citizenship, honesty, responsibility and dedication.
Our students recently earned their first PBIS event in October. The kids had a wonderful time watching and cheering for their classmates as they competed in our PBIS Talent Show. Our second event is planned for the end of February and will be the famous OLYMPIC day!
Remind your students to focus on limiting their tardies to school and class, come to school daily and be sure to be following school rules in order to earn our next event.
Their are many more school-wide activities throughout the year to foster meaningful relationships, while supporting school spirit in a positive, productive climate for growing and learning.
