Students at Warren G. Harding High School have experienced the benefits of gathering in small groups or pairing up with a partner to explore various subjects and topics.
Toegther, the students work to solve problems, complete tasks and learn new concepts. They also build teamworking skills that help them outside the classroom.
For example, recently, students in Mrs. Habowski’s ecology class gathered observational data to explore whether abiotic factors influence plan growth.
Mrs. Hays-Neifer’s demonstrated Boyle’s law for students during chemistry class.
Meanwhile, students in another classroom arrived at peer editing conclusions written from a recent experiment, giving them each the opportunity to provide feedback to their peers based on the requirements of a rubric. Students then return the conclusions to make edits before turning it in for grading.
Carol Wilson, Freshman Advisory teacher, utilizing micro labs for students to reflect on a topic, engaged in small group conversation with peers to hear personal viewpoints, then share ideas as a whole group.
The Board of Directors of the Warren City Schools’ Foundation and the Committee of the Warren High Schools’ Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame will induct the next class of outstanding graduates into the Warren High Schools’ Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame on April 30, 2022.
Honorees are graduates who have achieved success in their careers and/or have made significant contributions in their fields, as well as to society, the state and/or on a global scale. Honorees inducted into the Hall of Fame must be graduates of one of the three Warren public high schools: Warren High School, Warren G. Harding High School or Warren Western Reserve High School.
Please join us in recognizing our newest inductees at the 30th Annual Awards Dinner April 30, 2022:
The Warren G. Harding Robotics Team, Team E.L.I.T.E. 48, was back on the field competing for the first time since April 2019. The Finger Lakes Regional in Rochester, New York was their first Tournament that took place March 10, 11, and 12, 2022. Under the coaching of Mr. Frank Bosak and several Mentors, the Team made it through the Qualification rounds and were chosen to compete in the Elimination rounds. Their next competition will be the Buckeye Regional held at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center March 24-26, 2022. The competition starts at 9:00 each day, so come on out and cheer for our WGH Robotics Team!
Chris Allen, HR Manager from Ultium Cells in Lordstown, spent some time recently with Warren G. Harding seniors who have indicated an interest in entering the workforce or in pursuing a skilled trade upon graduation.
Ultium Cells is a newly built battery production facility that is looking for potential employees. Mr. Allen discussed the hiring process, outlined the various careers available at the facility and the benefits available to employees, including tuition reimbursement and on-the-job training.
Mr. Allen also discussed key responsibilities of some of the positions that included skills such as:
Strong interpersonal skills; communicate well with cross-functional team
Good foundational Math and Technical Skills
Demonstrated ability to set priorities-self directed area leadership
High School Graduate or equivalent
Demonstrated ability to solve complex problems
Strong computer and machine control skills
Ability to learn and train others in process equipment operation
Seniors demonstrated interest in the opportunity and had the chance to learn more during a question & answer session after the presentation.
Art created by students in all five of Warren City Schools is among dozens of works on display at the Trumbull Art Gallery through March 26, 2022.
The exhibit, “Celebrating Visual Art in Our Valley’s Schools,” features art created by students from 13 school districts in Trumbull and Mahoning counties.
The display also features art by the late Emil “Butch” Perunko, a longtime Warren City Schools teacher.
Trumbull Art Gallery is at 158 North Park Ave., Warren, Ohio. Hours are: noon to 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday; and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. TAG is also open by appointment for individuals or small groups.
Through hands-on learning students at Warren G. Harding have been identifying the differences between potential and kinetic energy.
Students began studying Newton’s Laws of Motions and general physics in February 2022 in Victoria Midgett’s Physical Science at Warren G. Harding High School.
“Hands-on activities are always a great way for students to learn and understand what is happening because they can actually demonstrate whatever the target at hand is on their own,” Midgett explained.
The purpose of this lab is to determine where the transfer of potential energy to kinetic energy took place, and identify where Newton’s First and Third Laws are demonstrated. The students explore the effects of different materials on the energy.
A recent activity involved students dropping different types of balls and measuring their rebound from the ground. They then dropped the same ball type on different surfaces and took similar measurements. Lastly, students dropped different ball types and measured the initial bounce height, second bounce and total all in one drop.
All of the data was compiled and then used to answer wrap up questions that aided in proving their purpose of the lab.
