  • Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage Welcomes FHS 8th Graders 12/12/18

    Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage Welcomes FHS 8th Graders 12/12/18

    8th grade students went to the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood on Dec. 12. They met Holocaust survivor Helen Marks. She was born in 1941 and went into hiding during the Holocaust. Her father was in Auschwitz and lived through it. After the war her family was reunited and moved to America. Students participated in a guided tour of the museum on the "stop the hate" tour. Students are writing essays in their English classes called "stop the hate." They learned that hatred is not something you are born with - you are taught to hate. Students discussed how to stand up for someone when they may witness something that isn't right. It was a truly educational experience. This will be the last generation of children to meet Holocaust survivors.

  • Fish Fry November 5, 2018

    Fish Fry November 5, 2018

    November 5, 2018, The Fairport Harbor School District held a Community Fish Fry to celebrate the success of the Hooked On Education, Personalized Learning Program. Students spent the fall fishing with Dave Hall of Top Flight Fishing Charters. Captain Dave Hall put the kids on fish and they limited out on every charter. During each fishing charter, the boat was the classroom! Students then cleaned the fish and it was stored until the fish fry. The day of the fish fry the students took to the kitchen to bread the fish. Joe Longo and Catering To You, once again, volunteered their catering truck, donated all of the salad, dressing, and french fries for our community event. They fried all of the fish and fries and are a great partner to Fairport Schools. We appreciate Chris Yano from the Fairport Harbor Senior Center, who opened her doors to us and helped with every detail. There is no one like Chris Yano, she works diligently and with a warm smile for everyone. A huge thank you to Chris Yano, Joe Longo & Glenn, Captain Dave Hall and everyone in the community that supports our school.

    The students in the design lab worked hard to make this night a success, they set up, cleared tables, took out the trash, washed dishes and served drinks! It is great to see such delightful young people giving back to the community. Some students are part of Hooked On Education and did most of the fishing. Other students in the personalized learning lab participated in activities with Hooked On Salsa! Students worked last spring planting vegetables in the community garden, they weeded and watered all summer and then harvested in the fall. They then went to work with a Chef to plan their salsa recipes. They made all of the salsa, packaged and even did the artwork on the labels. Salsa sales were phenomenal and most varieties sold out well before the event ended, samples were provided! The fried green tomatoes were also from the community garden!

  • Summer Zoology Fun With Mr. Yaussy

    Summer Zoology Fun With Mr. Yaussy

    This past summer, high school students were given the opportunity to take am elective Zoology course. This course focused on the diversity of animal life on the planet, and incorporated a variety of hands-on and behind-the-scenes experiences. Students got to talk with scientists from the Fairport ODNR Station and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History to learn about professions in the field. At the Akron Zoo and Columbus Zoo, they were able to peek behind the enclosures to where the grizzly bears sleep in Akron, and Mr. Yaussy was slightly attacked by a pelican in Columbus. There was even a visit from the Lake Metroparks with an opossum, a red-tailed hawk, a chicken, and a sheep.
