  • Strike Out Cancer - Saturday, May 19, 2018

    Strike Out Cancer - Saturday, May 19, 2018

    Our annual Strike Out Cancer event is coming up and we need your support! We hope you will partner with us by making a donation or sponsoring our 7th annual Strike Out Cancer event! As a school community invested in supporting our families, this event is very close to our hearts. Strike Out Cancer was conceptualized 6 years ago as a fundraiser for one of our teachers. Since then we have raised over 10,000 dollars to help local families in need and help provide relief for costly medical treatment. This year we hope to increase our donations so that we can provide some relief for multiple local families struggling with various difficult forms of cancer.

    The game will be held on Saturday, May 19th 2018 at Painesville Township Park Fields. Your generous sponsorship would be highlighted in announcements about the event, during the introduction of the event itself and in articles to be published in our newsletter afterward. You and any other representatives would be most welcome to attend so that we could thank you personally for your support.

    The event will include a Students V. Staff softball game, food concessions, 50/50 raffles, a Chinese auction and a DJ. Families and sponsors are invited to bring their lawn chairs and blankets to view the game. We are in great need of donations of raffle items, food/catering donations, and of course time for this worthy cause. If you would like to make a donation, become one of our sponsors, or help with the event, please contact Tanya Fitzgerald or Jennifer Polak @ 440-354-5400 x 200. Thank you for considering this request. Please click the image for more information!

  • ‘The Addams Family’ on stage at Fairport Harding High School

    ‘The Addams Family’ on stage at Fairport Harding High School

    By Steve Couch, For The News-Herald

    POSTED: 03/14/18, 10:20 AM EDT

    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.

  • Auburn Career Center students donate hair to Wigs for Kids

    Auburn Career Center students donate hair to Wigs for Kids

    POSTED: 03/07/18, 4:46 PM EST

    Two Auburn Career Center students not only have a new look, but they are also making a difference.

    Cecelia Nemergut, a Cosmetology student from Berkshire, and Shelby Benko, an Allied Health student from Fairport, both donated their long locks.

    “My hair was getting really long and was always getting in my way. It was long enough to donate. I wanted to do something good with it,” Shelby said. “It feels a lot lighter, and I feel good it is not going to waste.”

    Lindsey Benko, Shelby’s twin sister, is in Auburn’s Cosmetology program and cut Shelby’s hair.

    “I love her new haircut. I feel really accomplished and it makes it even better knowing that it’s going to a good cause,” Lindsey said.

    Both students donated 12 inches of hair to Wigs for Kids.

    Auburn’s cosmetology salon is open on select Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

    Auburn Career Center is located at 8140 Auburn Road in Concord Township. For additional information, call 440-357-7542 or visit www.auburncc.org.

  • Fairport Girls Basketball Players Hoopin' For a Cure - February 9, 2018

    Fairport Girls Basketball Players Hoopin' For a Cure - February 9, 2018

    Fairport Girls Basketball players have been busy collecting sponsors for the past few weeks in preparation for their Annual Hoopin' For a Cure Event, which took place on February 9, 2018 in the Fairport Harding High School Gymnasium. Students from McKinley also participated in this event.

    Each player shot 100 free throws and then tallied their results. Sponsors could donate a lump sum to the cause or sponsor a player based on the number of shots they made.

    Thank you to Brickhouse Pizza who donated all of the pizza for the players for the event. Another thank you to all the parents and families who came to support the players as they shot their free throws!

    One fourth grader from McKinley, named Allie, raised almost $400 for the good cause to help a local family fight cancer.

    The total amount being raised is still to be determined and once all the donations are tallied, we will update you on the website.

    Check out www.fhevs.org/athletics or on our Fairport Harding Athletics Facebook group for some video footage from the event!

  • Ballet Observation Day - January 10, 2018

    Ballet Observation Day - January 10, 2018

    Parents & Board Members were invited to observe a ballet class on January 10th, 2018. During the Fall semester, 24 middle school students enrolled in ballet, a new course offered at Harding. This elective, designed for beginners, introduced students to basic movement, vocabulary and French terminology. Attention was paid to proper body alignment, coordination of movements, as well as the discipline and structure that are the pillars of any ballet class. Each class followed the traditional ballet class format, beginning at the barre and then continuing with exercises in the center. An introduction to choreographic elements was also taught, with students choreographing their own, original dances. The semester culminated with an open class to which families and staff members were invited to observe and share in a celebration of the accomplishments of each of the students. Dr. Erin Allen is the Ballet Teacher.

    What is a Quality Profile? The purpose of the Quality Profile is to provide “the rest of the story,” giving the Fairport Harbor community a report on how our schools are performing in the areas that matter most. The Fairport Harbor community believes schools should provide opportunities for students to pursue excellence in many forms. The education we provide goes far beyond what is measured by the Ohio Department of Education standardized tests. The best way to prepare our students for success in college, career, and life is to create opportunities for personalized learning tailored to individual student talents and interests. That is why Fairport students are learning today and leading tomorrow.
