The Fairport Skippers welcomed the Broadmoor Bobcats for their first away basketball game in 3 years! Coach Ed Reed organized the game and the girls' Varsity/JV basketball players competed against the Bobcats. The Skipper and Bobcat cheerleaders put on a fantastic show and lead the crowd of students and guests. The teams shared lunch before the Bobcats had to depart and it was a fun time for all! The Skippers fell short and the Bobcats came away with the victory this time.

On Friday, December 16, Mr. Hites and Mr. Hlousek took a group of students to enjoy The Story of Early Hip Hop at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Students learned about the origins of Hip Hop from block parties in the Bronx, NY, with DJ Kool Herc, to the mixing and sampling that we hear today. Students got a chance to scratch records on turntables, play guitar, keyboard, and drums, and learn about all of the inductees in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. This was a great culminating activity for Mr. Hlousek’s Backbeat: A Musical Journey through American History class. Mr. Hites and Mr. Hlousek have been taking students each semester for the last 6 years and they enjoy it every year. They look forward to taking a new set of students next semester and taking advantage of the museum’s free education opportunities.
