The Fridley Schools Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports Fridley Public Schools, will host its third annual Black & Gold Gala on Thursday, January 30, 2020, beginning at 5:00 p.m. at Jax Café, 1928 University Avenue NE, Minneapolis.

The Fridley Schools Foundation aims to raise more than $25,000 at the event to fund teacher innovation grants and student scholarships. Fridley teachers can apply for the innovation grants to spend on educational activities, field trips, items for classroom use and more. Student scholarships will be awarded to graduating Fridley High School seniors at the end of the 2019-20 school year. Last year, the Foundation was able to award over $125,000 worth of scholarships to students.

The Gala will include a social hour, silent auction, followed by a fabulous Jax dinner and live auction. Auction items include tickets to various Twin Cities theaters and events, restaurant gift certificates, experiential activities and more. A full cash bar will be available, and dress is semi-formal attire.

Tickets are $95 per person or sponsor a table of eight for $725. Tickets can be purchased on the Fridley Schools Foundation website at www.fridleyschoolsfoundation.org.

“The Foundation is passionate about enhancing educational opportunities for our students,” said Fridley Schools Foundation President Renee Van Gorp. “This gala is our largest annual fundraising effort to fund educator grants and scholarships.  We hope to fill every seat and work together to show support of our school community through a night filled with fun for a great cause.”

Each year, the Foundation honors a Golden Apple Award recipient, an individual who has made significant contributions to the Fridley school district. This year’s honoree is Bob Barnette, a longtime Fridley High School teacher and school counselor, who dedicated many years of service to Fridley Public Schools.

ABOUT THE FRIDLEY SCHOOLS FOUNDATION:

The Fridley Schools Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation independent of the Fridley Public Schools. The Fridley Schools Foundation mission is to open doors to enhance educational opportunities for students in the Fridley Schools community. Since 1999, the Foundation has provided teacher innovation grants, awarded college scholarships and has served as a resource for active booster clubs within the district.

The annual Shop with a Cop holiday tradition continues to put smiles on the faces of Hayes and Stevenson Elementary students. On December 4, 2019, over 20 members of the Fridley Police Departments (FPD) partnered with 16 Fridley Public Schools Hayes and Stevenson students to complete their Christmas shopping at the Fridley Walmart store.

According to School Resource Officer Patrick Faber, an alumn of Fridley Public Schools, the purpose of the Shop with a Cop event is to foster positive interactions with police, while building trusting and engaging relationships.

“I always value this opportunity to spend time with students in our community,” said Faber, who has been participating in the program for more than five years. “I look forward to it every year. It’s a great chance for us to connect with students, have some fun, and show them that we are real people too.”

Students were partnered with a patrol, civilian officer, or Police Explorer - a young adult or student who is working hands-on with officers to explore a career in law enforcement. With the help of the officers, students thoughtfully selected gifts for their family members with gift cards donated by the Walmart store.

After the shopping was complete, the officers, Police Explorers, and volunteers from Hayes and Stevenson helped to wrap presents and label gifts. The students were also able to enjoy a meal with their police partners, courtesy of the Subway restaurant located within the store.
