    Scientific Investigations 2/8/24

    This week in Miss Markiewicz's new class "Scientific Investigations," students were able to explore a crime scene in the chem lab! In each scene, students were to identify four pieces of evidence, mark them with evidence markers, photograph the scene, and then measure out the scene. They had to create a detailed crime scene sketch after finishing their measurements and finally, they were able to "bag and tag" their evidence.
    The next day, a different group had to recreate the scene using their data! This was a great exercise for students to understand the importance of good qualitative and quantitative measurement skills and documentation in the sciences. We are looking forward to completing many more investigation-based labs!

    AED Donation 1/16/24

    University Hospitals Drusinsky Sports Medicine Institute, with the support of the Make Them Know Your Name Foundation, Kaulig Companies, and the Cleveland Browns, are happy to provide a BRAND new AED to Fairport Harding High School for completing the AEDin3 challenge!

    The AEDin3 challenge is an initiative led by University Hospitals to make our school athletic facilities safer by ensuring quick access to an AED. AEDs drastically increase the odds of survival for individuals who experience cardiac arrest.

    Thank you to University Hospitals Certified Athletic Trainer Molly Zolcak for completing the challenge and to Jamie Hart with UH Drusinsky Sports Medicine Institute for coming tonight to present the new AED. This AED will be available during athletic events and will be installed outside by the football field during fall 2024 sports season. There is also an AED in the gym hallway by the concession stand. Our trainer Molly also carries an AED with her during athletic events.

    Go Skippers! 🏀⚓

    FHEVS supports Jack Sawyer 10/20/23

    McKinley Elementary & Harding MS/HS supporting Jack Sawyer.
    Jack Sawyer, a student from Mentor High School, has been battling an aggressive cancer over the last 18 months. Jack and his family made a courageous decision to forgo further cancer treatment as they have exhausted all possible treatments. Many area school districts are showing support by wearing yellow to school and athletic events this Friday. I would like for all Skippers to also show our support, care and concern for Jack in his final weeks of life. Friday we will honor Jack and be #JBSSTRONG day. We ask everyone to wear YELLOW to show our support for Jack.

  • Field Trip Lake Tran/Lake County Court House 5/4/23

    Field Trip Lake Tran/Lake County Court House 5/4/23

    Fairport Harding HS students had a chance to see our local government in action on Thursday, May 4. The students learned about the Bus route #5 on Lake Tran and caught the bus to and from Painesville City. Students attended the Lake County Commissioners meeting and enjoyed watching the commissioners in action, making decisions to keep our community running. Lake County Commissioner John Hamercheck led the students on a tour of the building and spoke to the students about why he became a politician. He wanted to serve the people in the community and stressed the importance of that in his position.

    Students also visited the judicial branch of government and stepped into Judge Condon's courtroom in the Lake County Courthouse. They learned more about the process for being selected to serve on a jury and the various courts we have in Lake County county including Painesville Municipal Court, Probate Court, Family Court, Juvenile Court and Criminal Court. They learned about many jobs that are available in the courtroom from a prosecutor to bailiff to court reporting to the sheriff's department. Judge Condon spent a lot of time answering questions and talking about how judges are elected, how long their terms are, and even discussed how sentencing works. The students who attended were excellent in attention and benefitted from the experience in many ways.

    Field Trip to CSU 4/5/23

    Miss Markiewicz took her Physics students to the Biomechanics Day at Cleveland State University. Students heard from a panel of speakers including a retired orthopedic surgeon from The Cleveland Clinic, Olympic pole vaulter, Matt Ludwig, and one of the biomechanics coaches for the Cleveland Browns! After attending the panel, students were allowed to feast at the CSU dining hall. To round out the day, students moved down to the design space in the Washkewicz College of Engineering to design a shoe insole! Students had a wonderful and exciting learning experience at CSU.
