How can fathers support their children’s learning? How can they be involved? What issues and topics matter to them? What activities would they like to do with their children?

On October 27, 2016, a group of dads of students from Hayes and Stevenson elementary schools gathered at the Fridley Community Center for the first meeting of the district’s Fatherhood Partnership.

The initiative was developed to provide an avenue for fathers to get together, learn from one another, access resources for themselves and their children, and learn how they can continue to support and contribute to their children’s educational success.

The partnership was organized by Heshima Selassie, Family Outreach Liaison at Stevenson Elementary School. Selassie, who has had numerous conversations with the fathers of the students he serves, said that this was an opportunity that a lot of the dads have been looking for.

In his opening speech, guest speaker John Warren, Family Engagement Specialist from the Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD), applauded the fathers who attended the event.

“There are many things you could be doing right now,” he said, “but you are here. You chose to attend this event because you care for your children and want to give them your very best.”

A father himself, Warren talked to dads about creating a balance between work and other responsibilities to allow them to continue to have quality time with their children. Several dads attended the event with their children and were able to sit with them during some of the evenings activities.

“You are your children's hero,” said Warren. “Being a dad is tough, and as tough as parenting is, your children are depending on you to help them succeed in school and life. You can be that hero for them,” he said.

“This was a great beginning,” said Selassie. A short survey taken by the dads at the end of the session indicated that they wanted and were looking forward to another dad event and opportunities for involvement with their children.

“We are looking at the feedback,” said Selassie, “and we will use the information that the dads provided to plan the next event soon.”

Fridley Public Schools held its seventh annual Distinguished Alumni Awards event on October 28, 2016 at the Fridley Community Center.  This year, ten Fridley High School alumni were honored, along with the Decade of Girls Basketball teams: 1988-1997, who received the Circle of Excellence Award.

The purpose of the Distinguished Alumni Award is to honor Fridley High School graduates who have distinguished themselves in their chosen careers and service to their communities. The program also aims to generate interest and support in current students and staff by connecting them to Fridley’s past.

Both awards are to those who, based on their excellence and contributions as individuals and as a group, have brought honor to Fridley High School and to their community.

The presence and accomplishments of the district’s alumni allows today’s students to touch and experience the past and see possible pathways to brighter futures.
