    Grade 4 Recorders May 2022

    The 4th graders have been working incredibly hard at learning how to play the recorder! So far every single student can play Hot Cross Buns (white), Au Clair de la Lune (yellow), and Merrily We Roll Along (orange). As you can see from their signatures, many more have gone ahead and learned other songs because they are enjoying it so much! A small group of students even choose to spend their lunch time down in the music room a few days a week so that they can get some more practice time in. Bravo to these fine musicians!

    Senior VS Staff Basketball Game 5/13/22

    Seniors
    We had a fun day on our last Senior day Friday! It started with Ryan Chipps signing to play golf for Lake Erie College- congrats! Our Lady Skippers basketball players honored "Coach of the Year" Ed Reed. They presented him with a signed basketball. The Senior vs. Staff game was a ton of fun but unfortunately, the staff came up short this year. Everyone was happy to see Mr. Cardina who came to play for the staff. Thank you to everyone who helped make the day fun for all of us.

  • Frog Dissection

    Frog Dissection

    This past week, Biology students at Harding were able to learn more about body systems by dissecting frogs. Students were able to identify the heart, liver, intestines, tympanic membranes, two types of teeth, and more! They were also able to make comparisons between human body systems and frog body systems. This was an exciting opportunity for students to do some hands-on learning.

    Harding visits McKinley 3/2/22

    Teacher Sandra Knight "I'm very proud of the Skippers who volunteered to walk to McKinley this afternoon to read books to the kindergarten classes. Some absolutely great displays of citizenship at McKinley Elementary School. Parents, if you happen to see your teenager in one of these photos, please tell them they did a phenomenal job. Perhaps some future kindergarten teachers in the group? Read Across America Day is an activity we have done for many years prior to COVID-19. It was very nice to have the students participate again this year. Thank you Mrs. Dubeansky and Mrs. Wolo for having us."

    PBIS Perks at McKinley 2/2022

    What is PBIS?

    Positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) is an approach schools use to promote school safety and good behavior.

    With PBIS, schools teach kids about behavior expectations and strategies.

    The focus of PBIS is prevention, not punishment.
    Students who had positive behavior for the month of February got to participate in cupcake BINGO! These students had no office referrals, had positive class behavior, completed all of their assignments, and had good attendance.

    The Outsiders Debate Gr 8 2/18/22

    The Debate of 8th Grade
    Our 8th-grade students had been working very hard on the debate in Mr. Campbell's class. They were debating if Johnny from The Outsiders was a murderer. They used factual evidence to support many of their rebuttals, such as Oklahoma laws dated to the time period. Not only was it fun to watch them, but it was also fun to learn as well!
