Out of the many impressive works displayed at the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) Personal Projects Celebration, projects of 55 Fridley High School (FHS) students earned "Personal Project of Distinction" designations.

In celebration of National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID), Stevenson Elementary students had the chance to share their school experience with their parents on February 11, 2019.

Parents had the opportunity to meet teachers, staff and administrators, and visit their child’s classrooms for a portion of the day. They also enjoyed a presentation put together by the students and Hope Laroche, Stevenson’s family and cultural liaison. Students recited poems and quotes by famous African American leaders or those they wrote themselves.

According to Laroche, NAAPID is important in reinforcing the value of parental involvement.

“When parents or guardians and schools work together to promote academic achievement, children succeed at higher rates,” said Laroche. “We want to provide as many opportunities as possible where we can all work together so all students can achieve to the best of their potential.”

Laroche added that she was proud of the students for presenting to the crowd with such poise and confidence.

“We were thrilled that so many parents and guardians were able to join us in celebrating this day,” said Laroche. “We’re so glad we can provide a welcoming environment for both students and parents so our school can provide a path to success for all students.”








Congratulations to Fridley Middle School teacher Rachel Cathey, who was named KS95 Teacher of the Week! KS95 is a local radio station serving the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Rudy from KS95 visited her choir class on February 11, 2019 to award her an "Excellence Award" plaque, as well as a plaque for Fridley Middle School.

Ms. Cathey teaches Visual Arts, Choir and Theatre Courses at FMS. She also runs a choir support class and theatre improv class that are open to 7th and 8th grade students. After school, you can find Ms. Cathey running the FMS Theater Program - directing, choreographing, making props and promoting the seasonal productions.

Thank you, Ms. Cathey, for all your hard work!


Congratulations to Fridley High School (FHS) and Fridley Moore Lake Area Learning Center (ALC) students Savanna Bordeaux (ALC), Lita Kelsey (FHS), Karlista Knighten (ALC), and Ayrton Rosales (FHS) who were selected to take part in the National Congress of American Indian - Youth Legislative Summit in Washington DC.

Our ALC and FHS students were four of only 12 from the Twin Cities area selected to attend this expense-paid trip from February 10-15 through MIGIZI, a nonprofit American Indian collaborative. Students will have the opportunity to hear from tribal leaders across the country, meet and collaborate with students from around the nation, visit with elected officials, and learn more about the political system and our nation’s capital.

Students were accepted into the program through an application process and referral. Congratulations to our students and we are excited for you to represent our district in Washington DC!
