  • Harding Chemistry Students Bake Bread for the 2nd Annual Fish Fry - November 28, 2017

    Harding Chemistry Students Bake Bread for the 2nd Annual Fish Fry - November 28, 2017

    Student Writer: Mark Wilmes

    Several students from Harding took a field trip to the Fairport Harbor Senior Citizen Center to investigate the relationship between chemistry and baking. The purpose of the lab was to observe chemical reactions in action by taking measurements of the oxygen being used and carbon dioxide being produced as the yeast metabolize the sugars present in the dough, along with baking the bread and testing it out for themselves. They used multiple different sugars, such as honey, agave extract, aspartame, sucralose and more. The dough was then sealed in an airtight container to let it rise and let the yeast eat up some sugars, while an oxygen and a carbon dioxide probe measured the amount of each gas being consumed or produced, respectively. After all the work was done, the students then indulged in the fruits of their labor. The bread the students made was also served at the Fish Fry Dinner at the Senior Citizen Center hosted by the Design Lab.

  • Fairport Harding Jr. High Students Busy Spreading Happiness

    Fairport Harding Jr. High Students Busy Spreading Happiness

    The small gestures of kindness started with one small idea but has spread throughout Fairport Harding Jr. High School. It all started when four students got together and decided they wanted to make a change. The students thought of ways to start "spreading happiness" because they saw some negativity around the school. One organizer, Audrey, a 6th grader, immediately took action and told the rest of the group called the "Happy Spreaders" about what she saw and that’s where it all started. The Happy Spreaders made a positive impact on the students, the teachers and in themselves. While working each day to spread positivity with their friends, it made them realize the creativity and kindness of each other. Click to read more!

  • 8th Graders visit Maltz Museum to hear a Holocaust Survivor's Story - November 21, 2017

    8th Graders visit Maltz Museum to hear a Holocaust Survivor's Story - November 21, 2017

    Our eighth graders at Harding High School visited the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage to hear a Holocaust Survivor's Story on November 21, 2017. Students had the opportunity to meet Helen Marks, one of the youngest Holocaust survivors still living today. Mrs. Marks shared her personal story about her family's experience during the Holocaust. Students participated in a one hour "Stop the Hate" guided tour led by two volunteer docents at the museum. Our very own Mr. Yaussy shared his own family's heritage with our students by showing his family's photo which is displayed in one of the exhibits at the museum.

  • Harding High School First Annual Stop the Hate Assembly - November 15, 2017

    Harding High School First Annual Stop the Hate Assembly - November 15, 2017

    On November 15, Harding High School English 3 students hosted the first annual Stop the Hate Assembly. The stop the hate essay, sponsored by the Maltz Museum, was designed to create an understanding of people of other races, religions, cultures, and backgrounds. The students who were invited to speak were selected for writing some of the best essays which addressed how they stood up to hate. We hope their presentations and the panel discussion helps our Harding students to become more aware, caring and kind students.
