    Think Fast! 3/6/20

    The Think Fast Interactive was Friday for students in grades 9-12. ThinkFast® was developed in 1997 as a program that would non-intrusively expose participants to and educate them on important information on hard-to-tackle topics, i.e. the consequences of underage drinking, drug use, bullying, traffic safety, distracted driving, etc., while simultaneously entertaining them in a safe, relaxed and fun environment.

    Living Museum- Grade 2- Where We Are in Place & Time

    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.

    Model UN 11/11/19 & 11/12/19

    Model United Nations, also known as Model UN, is an extra-curricular activity in which students typically roleplay delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees. This year's event took place at Case Western Reserve, which was orchestrated by Mr. Hlousek.


    The kids love this event. We were expecting a lot of snow on Tuesday, and I had several kids tell me on Monday after school that they did not want a snow day because of Model UN. That's dedication!

    Thank you, students, for representing Fairport Harbor Schools, you all looked very professional.
