District Wide (Harding & McKinley)
Excerpt from article: "Although it is the smallest of Lake County's nine public school districts, Fairport Harbor's 2018-19 enrollment of 852 represents a 35 percent increase from its 2013-14 enrollment of 630.
Fairport Superintendent Domenic Paolo attributes much of the gain in his district's student population to an open enrollment policy in place since 2006.
He said while most open enrollment students are coming from Painesville, Painesville Township, Mentor and nearby communities, some are from communities in Geauga and Ashtabula counties.
The influx of students means the district's two aging schools, McKinley Elementary and Fairport Harding Junior-Senior High, are operating at full capacity and beyond.
"People want the more-personalized learning experience for students we offer," Paolo said. "To keep doing that, we need to modernize facilities."
Paolo said the Fairport system in February submitted an application to the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission for state funding to build a new school that would house all of its students in one building.
The new school would be built on the site of the junior-senior high school. Paolo said the estimated cost of the project is $30 million.
Because of the economic profile of the village of 3,000, the state commission would provide 92 percent of the funding. The Fairport school board will place a 3-mill bond issue on the ballot to raise the remaining $2.4 million.
Paolo said the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission has $300 million in its coffers while there are 17 school districts in line for funding before Fairport Harbor.
The current scenario could have the new bond issue in front of Fairport Harbor voters in 2020."

Fairport Harbor Schools Theatre will be performing the classic Neil Simon comedy “The Odd Couple (Female Version)” Nov. 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 18 at 2 p.m. in the Branthoover Auditorium at Fairport Harding High School.
Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students on a first-come, first-serve basis. The show is rated PG and runs approximately 2 hours. Doors open one hour before show time and seating begins 30 minutes prior to the start of the performance.
“I wanted to perform a classic comedy as a tribute to Simon who sadly passed away this summer,” says director Johnathan Luster. “Working in a smaller district and with a predominantly female theater department, it was fortunate Neil Simon created a female version of this beloved play. It’s a natural fit for the cast and a lot of fun to perform.”
In Simon’s “Female” version, Felix Unger and Oscar Madison are at it again, but with a bit of a twist. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version of the play, the roles are changed. Ms. Olive Madison invites the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit and the comedy ensues when Florence Unger arrives on the scene.
“The characters may have changed,” Luster says, “but the laughter remains the same."
Making things even more interesting, Olive and Florence will be played by sisters Victoria Palmer, a senior, and Gabrielle Palmer, a junior. Both girls have grown up on the FHS stage since middle school.
“Playing the role of the messy, laid-back New Yorker opposite Gabby, who plays an uptight and neurotic neat freak, is a dream come true,” Victoria says. “Not many people get to share the stage with family and play such amazing roles.”
“We have been blessed with amazing directors and opportunities through FHS Theater and we are having a lot of fun,” Gabby says. “I am going to miss this senior class and performing with my sister.

"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."

8th grade students went to the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood on Dec. 12. They met Holocaust survivor Helen Marks. She was born in 1941 and went into hiding during the Holocaust. Her father was in Auschwitz and lived through it. After the war her family was reunited and moved to America. Students participated in a guided tour of the museum on the "stop the hate" tour. Students are writing essays in their English classes called "stop the hate." They learned that hatred is not something you are born with - you are taught to hate. Students discussed how to stand up for someone when they may witness something that isn't right. It was a truly educational experience. This will be the last generation of children to meet Holocaust survivors.
Mrs. Michelle Jurick & Principal Katie Rumbarger took the top performing Sophomores & Juniors on a whirlwind tour of colleges in Ohio. Students could compare campus size, offerings, and student life as they toured several colleges over a two day period.
Mr. Conn took some Hooked on Education students to The Finish Heritage Museum for a tour and history lesson including how the Finnish came to Fairport Harbor. Part of their study on “People of Fairport Harbor”.
McKinley Elementary School hosted Special Person Week November 5 through November 9! Students and their special person painted rocks and spent time enjoying each others company!

Fairport Harding High School sent several delegates in grades 9-12 to participate in the Model UN in Cleveland. Students prepared information based on a Country they chose to represent.

Thank you Mr. Hlousek for preparing and coordinating this unique learning opportunity for Fairport Harding Students.
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!
The 8th-grade students in Mrs. Knight's ELA 1st/2nd period class walked to the Fairport Harbor Senior Center on Monday to help with a few outdoor projects. The students raked leaves, washed windows and cleaned up various areas of the senior center. Thank you to Chris Yano for hosting and coordinating the service project.
