Brady competes at Science Fair

It was all in the name of science as 28 Brady Middle School students presented their creative projects at the annual science fair at the end of November. First place honors went to seventh-graders Lindy Leikin, Bailey Walinsky and Skyler Weisenberg for their project “Can Color Affect Eyesight?” Second place was awarded to seventh-graders Farah Adhami and Lily Boardman for “Fact vs. Fiction.” Third place went to eighth-grader Lila Tye for “Music Therapy for Kids with Autism.” Honorable mentions were awarded to seventh-grader Diego Ochiai for “Terrarium” and sixth-grader Viktor Seligmann for “Death by Black Hole.” The science fair was organized and coordinated by advisor Lindsay Ilcisko with assistance from PTA members Mary Balding and Laura Kochis.

Kiwanis names Senior of the Month

The Kiwanis Club of Lander Circle named Orange High School senior Ryan Vincent as its December Kiwanis Senior of the Month. Each year the Kiwanians’ Youth Services Committee works with OHS staff members to recognize seniors who have shown significant contributions of dedicated service to the school community, civic involvement, exemplary integrity, attributes of leadership through actions and character and academic achievement.

Junior featured in downtown banner

Orange High School junior Harrison Pyner is among those featured on the new “Guardian” mosaic on the side of the Sherwin Williams building in downtown Cleveland, where the famous LeBron James banner used to be. The new design features one of the guardians of the Hope Memorial Bridge and states, “All for The Land.” The image is actually a mosaic made of smaller images. Harrison’s image in an Orange basketball uniform made it onto the new banner, which is across from Quicken Loans Arena.

Winter concert tonight

The Orange High School winter choir concert will take place tonight (Thursday), and the Brady Middle School winter band concert will take place on Dec. 18. Both concerts will begin at 7 p.m. in the OHS auditorium, 32000 Chagrin Blvd. in Pepper Pike.
