  • Fairport football team pays tribute to Don Anderson

    Fairport football team pays tribute to Don Anderson

    From the News Herald Article 9-16-18, By: John Kampf

    "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."

  • The Fairport Harbor Exempted Village Schools in consortium with Perry, Riverside, Lake Erie College, and Lake County ESC, has received a $500,000 grant from the Ohio Department of Education on May 23, 2018!

    The Fairport Harbor Exempted Village Schools in consortium with Perry, Riverside, Lake Erie College, and Lake County ESC, has received a $500,000 grant from the Ohio Department of Education on May 23, 2018!

    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.”

    Fairport’s Greig Field honored in 2017 Fields of Excellence program - May 2, 2018

    By Chris Lillstrung, The News-Herald

    POSTED: 05/02/18, 12:15 PM EDT

    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.

    Fairport will get a certificate of recognition and banner for the award.

  • Lubrizol Honors Lake County’s Outstanding STEM Teacher Team - March 23, 2018

    Lubrizol Honors Lake County’s Outstanding STEM Teacher Team - March 23, 2018

    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."

  • Fish Fry November 5, 2018

    Fish Fry November 5, 2018

    November 5, 2018, The Fairport Harbor School District held a Community Fish Fry to celebrate the success of the Hooked On Education, Personalized Learning Program. Students spent the fall fishing with Dave Hall of Top Flight Fishing Charters. Captain Dave Hall put the kids on fish and they limited out on every charter. During each fishing charter, the boat was the classroom! Students then cleaned the fish and it was stored until the fish fry. The day of the fish fry the students took to the kitchen to bread the fish. Joe Longo and Catering To You, once again, volunteered their catering truck, donated all of the salad, dressing, and french fries for our community event. They fried all of the fish and fries and are a great partner to Fairport Schools. We appreciate Chris Yano from the Fairport Harbor Senior Center, who opened her doors to us and helped with every detail. There is no one like Chris Yano, she works diligently and with a warm smile for everyone. A huge thank you to Chris Yano, Joe Longo & Glenn, Captain Dave Hall and everyone in the community that supports our school.

    The students in the design lab worked hard to make this night a success, they set up, cleared tables, took out the trash, washed dishes and served drinks! It is great to see such delightful young people giving back to the community. Some students are part of Hooked On Education and did most of the fishing. Other students in the personalized learning lab participated in activities with Hooked On Salsa! Students worked last spring planting vegetables in the community garden, they weeded and watered all summer and then harvested in the fall. They then went to work with a Chef to plan their salsa recipes. They made all of the salsa, packaged and even did the artwork on the labels. Salsa sales were phenomenal and most varieties sold out well before the event ended, samples were provided! The fried green tomatoes were also from the community garden!

Fairport Harbor Exempted Village School District Quality Profile

  • Please download our Fairport Harbor Schools Quality Profile (2017-2018). 

    You can also review last year's Quality Profile (2016-2017)

    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.
