The Ohio Department of Education states that House Bill 113 has updated the first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) curriculum requirement under Ohio law to include specific training and curriculum guides. In order to meet these requirements for our students, we brought in Fairport's Own Chief Bob Lloyd to train our students. The students spent the morning learning how to save lives! CPR training and use of an AED were also covered in this very important training. Students were engaged and focused on the lessons graciously provided by the Fairport Fire Department Employees. Thank You Fairport Fire Department for supporting the students.
On May 8, 2018, our Fairport Drama Department performed scenes of the Spring Musical, The Addams Family and the Fall Play, Steel Magnolias.

Well done students, staff and volunteers!
