Mrs. Edixon-Congratulations to our second-grade teacher, Mrs. Edixon for getting her Donors Choose project funded! Mrs. Edixon asked for donations to give her students a classroom library to improve fluency and grow their knowledge of the world around them. She will receive over $800 worth of supplies to help her second grade students become better readers. Way to go and thank you to all that made a donation for these books!
Mrs.Slovenkay- Mrs. Slovenkay is excited to announce that a project she submitted to Donors Choose has been fully funded, thanks to several community members and a corporate match sponsorship through Lockheed Martin. The materials she requested will be directly connected to three different IB inquiries and will address several academic content areas. The materials will arrive in January and the fifth graders will be utilizing them for their inquiry into how light travels and its effect on life on Earth. THANK YOU to everyone that helped spread the word and a special shout-out to those that donated to make this project possible.

Fairport young but hopeful
November 18, 2019
Fairport Harding returns three starters and five others with varsity experience leaving the Skippers hopeful to show vast improvement from last season.
With just two seniors on the squad and six sophomores expected to play key minutes, the Skippers remain young but have the potential to be competitive this winter.
“We are very young and a work in progress, especially after the tough season we had last year,” ninth-year head coach Matt Cardina said. “However, we have matured on and off the court so I feel we have a strong potential to grow a lot this year and begin to learn how to win.”
What the Skippers lack in size they make up for with their speed and Cardina plans to use that quickness to his advantage.

McKinley second grade students held their annual "Living Museum" in celebration of the end of their Unit of Inquiry on Where We Are in Place & Time. As you can see the students dressed as the significant person they researched. They did an amazing job imitating statues until museum visitors "pushed their buttons" for the presentation. It was a wonderful day full of visits from Alexander Graham Bell, Sacajawea, Jane Goodall, Babe Ruth, Georgia O'Keeffe, Abraham Lincoln, Nikola Tesla and many more.
