Fairport’s Greig Field was again honored by Pioneer Athletics with a 2017 Fields of Excellence Award.
This is the seventh time Greig Field has received this plaudit.
According to a news release, Fields of Excellence “honors outstanding athletic fields and the hard working field crews who diligently maintain them.”
Created in 1997, the program has honored more than 1,000 fields across the country.
College, universities, high schools and parks and recreation departments submit pictures of the fields, along with letters of recommendation and application forms describing their field maintenance program.
From those this year, 91 winners were selected by Pioneer Athletics.
Greig Field was one of 13 winners in Ohio, along with Convoy Crestview, Elida, Fort Loramie, Galion, Berlin Hiland, Lexington, Lorain, West Lafayette Ridgewood, Spencerville and Elmore Woodmore at the high school level and Xavier University.

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."

The Fairport Harbor Schools Theatre Department is proud to present “The Addams Family” this weekend under second-year director Johnathan Luster.
Performances are at 7 p.m. March 16-17, and 2 p.m. March 18 in the Branthoover Auditorium at Fairport Harding High School. Tickets are $5 per person on a first-come, first-served basis at the door or pre-sale at the high school office.
Doors open one hour before curtain, and seating is 30 minutes prior to the start of the performance. The show runs approximately 2 ½ hours with a 15 minute intermission, and light refreshments will be available. Information can be found at www.fhevs.org or contact Harding High School at 440-354-5400.
As an added bonus, kids can come early to enjoy free crafts, photo props, and are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Addams Family member. You might even be able to get a signed autograph and your picture taken with your favorite character after the show!
In the small world of Fairport Harbor, a production this size requires a community effort, and indeed that is what they have done here by fielding a cast that utilizes students from the high school, middle school and elementary school.
“I’m encouraged by some of the young, strong, musical talent I have seen in Fairport already this year,” Luster writes, “with the assistance of choreographer and Fairport chemistry teacher, Dr. Erin Allen, who has infused the show with some energetic dance numbers to delight the audience.“
Luster also works with kindergarten teacher Jennifer Dubeansky, as the music director. Costumes, make-up, lights, sound and set design have all been touched by students in the show.
Don’t skip this positively ooky production this weekend.

The Ohio Department of Education states that House Bill 113 has updated the first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) curriculum requirement under Ohio law to include specific training and curriculum guides. In order to meet these requirements for our students, we brought in Fairport's Own Chief Bob Lloyd to train our students. The students spent the morning learning how to save lives! CPR training and use of an AED were also covered in this very important training. Students were engaged and focused on the lessons graciously provided by the Fairport Fire Department Employees. Thank You Fairport Fire Department for supporting the students.
