  • Freshmen learn CPR & AED May 17, 2018

    Freshmen learn CPR & AED May 17, 2018

    The Ohio Department of Education states that House Bill 113 has updated the first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) curriculum requirement under Ohio law to include specific training and curriculum guides. In order to meet these requirements for our students, we brought in Fairport's Own Chief Bob Lloyd to train our students. The students spent the morning learning how to save lives! CPR training and use of an AED were also covered in this very important training. Students were engaged and focused on the lessons graciously provided by the Fairport Fire Department Employees. Thank You Fairport Fire Department for supporting the students.

  • Fairport Girls Basketball Players Hoopin' For a Cure - February 9, 2018

    Fairport Girls Basketball Players Hoopin' For a Cure - February 9, 2018

    Fairport Girls Basketball players have been busy collecting sponsors for the past few weeks in preparation for their Annual Hoopin' For a Cure Event, which took place on February 9, 2018 in the Fairport Harding High School Gymnasium. Students from McKinley also participated in this event.

    Each player shot 100 free throws and then tallied their results. Sponsors could donate a lump sum to the cause or sponsor a player based on the number of shots they made.

    Thank you to Brickhouse Pizza who donated all of the pizza for the players for the event. Another thank you to all the parents and families who came to support the players as they shot their free throws!

    One fourth grader from McKinley, named Allie, raised almost $400 for the good cause to help a local family fight cancer.

    The total amount being raised is still to be determined and once all the donations are tallied, we will update you on the website.

    Check out www.fhevs.org/athletics or on our Fairport Harding Athletics Facebook group for some video footage from the event!
