Sixteen students at Fridley Moore Lake Area Learning Center (ALC) were honored for their hard work and accomplishments at the Celebration of Excellence held February 1, 2019. In addition, one student, Jakob Peets, received special recognition for his graduation from Fridley Public Schools.
The event’s theme centered on community, which highlighted the building of positive relationships among students, staff and the surrounding community.
“This year, we have put extra emphasis on building community in our school,” said ALC Principal Dr. Jason Bodey. “Not only are we continuing to build supportive relationships with each other, but we have also partnered with local organizations and businesses to get our students out in our community and to see what kind of opportunities are available to them.”
Bodey said the school has formed a partnership with nearby Lifetime Fitness where students are able to access the facility for activities and classes. Additionally, ALC students have taken numerous field trips to local businesses to learn about new career fields and potential future employment opportunities.
At the celebration, students were given awards from their teachers in recognition of their work and progress. The awards given to students included recognition for academic excellence, attendance, most improved and the 3D Award (Desire, Determination, and Discipline). Students of Tiger Streak, an ALC Leadership Group, also recognized their teachers with awards.
Bodey said that he and the staff are incredibly proud of the students’ accomplishments thus far and are excited for their futures.
“It’s an honor to work with these teenagers and young adults each day,” said Bodey. “I am humbled by how hard they work and I commend them for making their education a priority.”
