In addition to multiple team-building activites, STEM projects, and opportunities to get more comfortable with the transition to the High School building, students will have the opportunity to visit the Great Lakes Science Center, South Chagrin Reservation, Metroparks, and Cedar Point! Each and every day will be interactive and stimulating!

Today, the Fairport Harbor Exempted Village School district was awarded a "Straight A" grant from the Ohio Department of Education. In collaboration with Auburn Career Center, the Lake County ESC, and Battelle, the district developed a strategy for transdisciplinary, project-based learning that will allow students to master state standards while engaging in a project that will not only deepen learning, but also deepen their connection to their community.
Piloted last spring, the innovative approach to education has students learning and applying Ohio learning standards from all disciplines while engaged in a project which researches, designs, manufactures, markets and sells fishing lures using computer software, code writing, and three-dimensional printers. Located on the shores of Lake Erie, Fairport has a long tradition of recreational fishing. The fishing lure project takes advantage of the district's geography, pays homage to its traditions, and creates a new avenue to develop the entrepreneurial talents of its students.
The department received 141 grant applications representing 404 schools. Here is the link for the press release

Thanks to grant funding from the Jennings Foundation, our high school students were able to learn and apply skills in a fashion that makes learning deeper and more meaningful.
Today was the first day of rocket launching for Mrs. Tenon's freshman English and Mr. Messer's physics students.
This project embodies many of the things that we are striving to work towards as a district and it is a lot of fun too.
The transdisciplinary approach to education that is endemic to International Baccalaureate is not only successful in our elementary. As ESSA replaces NCLB, education in Ohio is going to change dramatically over the next decade.
As teachers become increasingly collaborative and lessons become more project and inquiry based, our students will find their learning to become more personalized and they will be the ones being launched into a bright future.
