  • Fish Fry THANK YOU! 10/2019

    Fish Fry THANK YOU! 10/2019

    A huge thank you to everyone who attended the 2019 Fish Fry.
    We appreciate Joe Longo for donating food and cooking all of the fish, stop into Longo's have a nice Italian Dinner & say THANKS!
    Dave Hall, of Top Flight Charters, has a tremendous amount of patience for our Hooked on Education students! He teaches our students how to cast, reel and clean the fish. He shows kindness and care when they get a bit seasick and always has a positive attitude. Every charter this year the students "limited out"-so he finds the fish too!
    Dr. Paolo, Mr. Hites & Mr. Messer have all gone out fishing this year with different groups of students, we are not clear on who caught the biggest fish, but several students received "Fish Ohio" certificates.
    Chris Yano at the senior center went over and above to help with this event, her helpfulness and patience as we take over for the afternoon should be commended!
    We appreciate the support of the Board of Education, Mary Javins, Linda Cope, Amy Hites, William Lukshaw, and Anna Coll, as well as the teachers and staff at Fairport Schools. Huge Thank you to Mrs. Fischer, Mrs. Rumbarger and Mrs. Polak for serving and jumping in to help where needed.

  • Student published in "The Lakelander" at Lakeland Community College 11/2019

    Student published in "The Lakelander" at Lakeland Community College 11/2019

    Gabby Palmer is taking a Creative Writing course at Lakeland this Semester. For their first assignment, they were asked to write fictional poetry, any style. Gabby wrote several free verse poems. Her professor was so impressed that he submitted the poems to the campus magazine and they were published in the Fall Edition of "The Lakelander". Attached are copies of her published poems.

    The "Red Houses" poem is based on her experience with a play she did at FHS many years ago, called "SISU is in the Heart" with Park Cofield about his family from Finland. The story and the people she met through that process had a huge impact on her.
    Her poem, "Humiliation", speaks for itself.

  • Kent State University Band Day    10/26/2019

    Kent State University Band Day 10/26/2019

    Eight students from the FHS Marching Band performed with the Kent State Marching Band on Saturday, October 26th during their football game against Miami University.

    Very proud of these kids! They arrived at 11:30 am to prepare for a
    3:30 pm kick-off. They quickly learned the songs and logistics. They
    performed at half-time with other school bands from around Ohio and
    participated in the stand tunes during the game. It was cold, wet,
    rainy and nasty...but they spent their free Saturday learning from the
    KSU marching band students and did an amazing job!

    8th Graders traveled to Perry HS to hear David J. Flood speak 10/17/19

    8th-grade students traveled to Perry HS today to listen to motivational youth speaker David J. Flood.
    Leadership Lake County sponsored this event and invited every student in Lake County to hear this message.

    Students had three challenges issues today:
    1. Look on the inside
    2. Find 2 adults in your school, look them in the eye and say thank you.
    3. No one eats alone.

    Flood told many stories about his life, family, children and challenged students to include others, show up for others and challenges student to look at yourself to see if you are the same person around your friends. His message to youth today was to be true to yourself, love others and include others.

  • Fire Safety Lessons at McKinley   October 2019

    Fire Safety Lessons at McKinley October 2019

    Thank you to our amazing Fairport Harbor Fire Department for spending two days this week in our classrooms teaching fire safety to our kiddo's. The students had a wonderful time learning about fire safety and seeing the fire truck. Be sure to have your child complete their fire "homework". The homework project is to sleep with their bedroom door closed. By sleeping with a bedroom door closed, you can significantly reduce the spread of smoke, heat, and fire if a fire should start in a home.

    Pep Rally at McKinley 9/27/19

    Thank you to the Fairport football team, band and cheerleaders for coming to McKinley Friday for a special assembly. Our kiddo's had a great time listening to the band, watching the flags and majorettes and cheering along with our fabulous FHS cheerleaders! The staff enjoyed looking at the adoring looks in the kids eyes as they shook hands with football players. These high school students were terrific role models for our students and showed so much kindness to all of them! I couldn't help but smile as I overheard our kids talk about growing up and being cheerleaders, football players and the "big drum boy". A great time was had by all.

  • Works of Art for "Needs a Home" Book    May 2019

    Works of Art for "Needs a Home" Book May 2019

    Mrs. Toomey the high school art teacher collaborated with Susan Johnson/Lynch a local author who is writing a children's (7) book series called "Needs a Home". The basis of the series is that there were 7 animals in her life that needed homes so she adopted them as pets. The stories are fun and described the animals' personalities but they also teach the responsibilities of how to care for them. Susan chose 8 students' artwork to be in her books that should be released next year. These student's names will be acknowledged in the book credits and the students can include this publication on their resumes when they graduate. Congratulations to:
    Maarika Haller, Matthew Oravecz, Jennifer Soria, Tierny Degidio, Morgan Braemer, Kiki Dambolena, Shyli Gibney and Kaylynn Clasing. Susan stated Kaylynn Clasing had the most illustrations chosen and her professional quality drawings included all 7 of the animals. Susan also mentioned how much she liked Tyler Clasing's sheep drawing, and she may end up using it!
    Thank you to all students who participated and Mrs. Toomey for coordinating this opportunity for our students. Look for "Needs a Home" children's book series by Susan Johnson/Lynch next year.
