Best Buy of North Olmsted Supports Perfect Attendance at Harding Middle School

On November 11, 2016, members of the Geek Squad from Best Buy of North Olmsted came to Harding Middle School to challenge the HMS teachers and staff to a friendly game of volleyball to support perfect attendance.  Matt Romance, the general manager at Best Buy of North Olmsted was on hand to raffle off cool tech prizes to students who achieved perfect attendance during the 1st quarter. 

The big winners of the afternoon were Zoe Hunter, Alesha Hanna-Kotula and Eric Abramczyk who all received cool technology prizes for their commitment to perfect attendance.  Highlights from the game included exceptional team spirit from Mrs. Batkiewicz, some phenomenal spikes from Mrs. Krepps and lights out serving from Mr. Giorgis.    

Look for the Best Buy Geek Squad to come back to Harding in the spring to compete again against the Harding staff as we continue our celebration of perfect attendance.

HMS Students Storm the Q Arena for Pre-Season Game

HMS student fundraiser VIPs attended the CAVS pre-season game versus the Orlando Magic on October 5.  The CAVS beat the Magic, but the real fun was had by students who attended the game with their friends and family. 

In partnership with Great American Fundraising, HMS students could earn free CAVS tickets to the October 5th game versus the Magic for participating in the school fundraiser.  Students who earned the VIP CAVS party also had a chance to participate in a shoot around on the CAVS court, earn prizes during a CAVS trivia game, and high five players as they entered the court. 

Mr. Sullivan, Assistant Principal, chaperoned the field trip along with other staff members.  “I have never seen our students so excited,” said Sullivan.  “They literally couldn’t sit still!  It was so nice to see our students enjoying time with their friends and family and watch the CAVS bring home a win.”
