On January 8, 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 2nd quarter.
The big winners of the afternoon were Michael Afram, Joshua Ferry, and Darron Jones, who all received cool technology prizes for their commitment to perfect attendance. Highlights from the game also included exceptional team spirit from Mrs. Batkiewicz and Mrs. Pesta, some ace serving from Mr. Blasko, and an awesome cartwheel from Mr. Gibbons.
Look for the Best Buy Geek Squad to come back to Harding in the spring to compete again against the Harding staff in kickball to continue a celebration of perfect attendance.
