"Cameron Ruff never played for Coach Don Andersen at Riverside, but the current coach at Fairport made sure he and his Skippers paid tribute to the legendary coach who died last week from pancreatic cancer.
The Skippers were decals on their helmets with the initials “D.A.” on them for a Week 4 win over Berkshire. The initiative was spearheaded by Jim Paugh, father of Fairport player Cody Paugh, who played at Riverside under Andersen."

Ohio was awarded a $35 million Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy Grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The three-year grant focuses on serving the greatest numbers of students living in poverty, students with disabilities, English learners and students identified as having reading difficulties. The grant builds on Ohio’s commitment to ensuring all students have the reading skills needed to succeed in education and life.
“We are excited to partner with Riverside, Perry, The Lake County Educational Service Center, and Lake Erie College to develop a comprehensive literacy plan to improve outcomes for our students across our collective districts. This generous award will allow us to specifically target literacy outcomes for our middle and high school students” said Jennifer Polak, the District’s Director of Pupil-Personnel. “It was a great pleasure to work with the other districts in writing this grant and we are honored to have the opportunity to improve our curriculum and teaching practices to ensure that our students have the reading skills necessary to achieve success!”
The grant, submitted by the consortium, addressed students from birth to twelfth grade. The award from ODE, however, will fund activities and professional development for content teachers of middle and high school students to assist them in implementing effective, research-based literacy strategies in all classes.”
“Reading is the foundational skill that ultimately allows us to learn more, and through this application process, we were able to see the great work happening in Ohio’s schools,” added Paolo DeMaria, state superintendent of public instruction.
“These Striving Readers grants put crucial resources directly into classrooms across the state, and we’re excited to work with awardees to improve outcomes for Ohio’s most vulnerable children.”

CLEVELAND, March 23, 2018 – The Lubrizol Corporation, in partnership with the Lake County Educational Service Center (ESC), announces the teacher team of Russ Messer, Jerry Hites, Paul Conn, Sheila Felix, Tim Hlousek, Sarah Murphey and Susan Tenon as the winner of the annual Lubrizol Lake County STEM Teacher Award. The "Hooked on Education" team led by Russ Messer, a STEM teacher at Fairport Harding High School, was selected for their innovative, interdisciplinary project-based lessons that engage students with personalized learning and connections to the real-world.
As recipient of the award, the "Hooked on Education" team will receive $5,000 for STEM-related teaching expenses of the teams choice, and team leader Russ Messer will receive sponsorship to attend the Ohio Chemistry Technology Council (OCTC) Teachers, Industry and Environment (TIE) Conference. In addition, Fairport Harding High School will receive an award of $5,000 for STEM equipment.
Addressing the Fairport Harbor Schools Board of Education, administration and community members, Julie Edgar, corporate vice president of innovation and chief sustainability officer for Lubrizol, honored the team by highlighting their innovative unit entitled "The Sky's the Limit". This unit is an interdisciplinary collaboration between an English and physics class to design, create and test water-fueled bottle rockets and launchers in the context of the themes of tenacity, dreams and the importance of education from Homer Hickam's memoir, Rocket Boy. During her remarks, Edgar stated, "I would like to recognize the team for promoting innovation in teaching and education, and in providing students the opportunities to learn in ways that match their interests, skills and talents. I applaud them all for their commitment and passion, and for making such a positive impact in their students' lives."

Every summer students entering Sixth Grade are offered an opportunity to explore Harding High School, participate in field trips and spend time with their classmates. Mr. David Daw and Mrs. Tara Messenger lead the students through team building activities and offer the students an opportunity to get comfortable at Harding.
This past summer, high school students were given the opportunity to take am elective Zoology course. This course focused on the diversity of animal life on the planet, and incorporated a variety of hands-on and behind-the-scenes experiences. Students got to talk with scientists from the Fairport ODNR Station and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History to learn about professions in the field. At the Akron Zoo and Columbus Zoo, they were able to peek behind the enclosures to where the grizzly bears sleep in Akron, and Mr. Yaussy was slightly attacked by a pelican in Columbus. There was even a visit from the Lake Metroparks with an opossum, a red-tailed hawk, a chicken, and a sheep.
Hooked On Education students started catching fish on September 19, 2018. Dave Hall of Top Flight Fishing Charters took the students out on Lake Erie where they caught lots Walleye, a Steelhead and White Bass. Then they cleaned the fish and prepared for storage until the fish fry (date to be announced).
On Monday, September 17, the 12 students and two teachers who are a part of the VR, AR, AI Seminar in the Hooked on Education Design Lab ventured to Akron to visit New Territory VR Studio. The students immersed themselves in VR technologies. Some students took virtual trips on Google Earth, some defended a castle with their virtual archery skills, others cooked breakfast with a virtual chef and our very own Mr. Conn wielded a virtual lightsaber in a spirited exhibition of skills. Some of the students were also able to wear a rumble vest, which made them feel music and sounds as opposed to just hearing them. After using the various technologies, we were able to sit down with New Territory owner, Bill Myers, to ask him questions about the future of AI, VR, and AR including what we can expect in the future. He also gave us insight as to what our students can do to prepare themselves to get into a career in these very lucrative fields.
