More than 10 years ago, a group of students at Hayes and Stevenson elementary schools started their primary educational journey. On June 2, 2016, that journey culminated with their graduation as proud members of the Fridley High School Class of 2016.

Before graduation, these students were invited back to their roots, a place where it all started to visit and receive special recognition from their elementary schools. They went back in time to a hero's welcome.

In both schools, current students in grades K-4 lined the hallways with their teachers and stared in awed delight as the now grown up kids and soon to be “alumni” walked through dressed in their graduation caps and gowns.

Hayes principal John Piotraschke and Stevenson principal Daryl Vossler and their staff presented each student with a special certificate of accomplishment. As the seniors made their rounds and some visited their former classrooms, they were greeted with high fives and enthusiastic applause from the younger students, and a great sense of pride on a job well done from teachers and staff.
