On October 17, 2017, Fridley students at the Area Learning Center (ALC) volunteered to carve 30 pumpkins to contribute to “Pumpkin Night in the Park” at Springbrook Nature Center which will take place this weekend.

Every year, Springbrook Nature Center invites community members to help carve a total of 1,000 pumpkins for the Halloween event. Former ALC Principal Dr. Rob Smith started the tradition of carving pumpkins at the school 8 years ago.

ALC teacher Josh Thurston said the ALC has continued to volunteer because it is a unique experience that builds community within the building. He added that it serves as an opportunity to give back to others in the Fridley community.

“Our students really enjoy doing something different during the school day that is meaningful and fun,” Thurston said. “Many of them have been to Springbrook in the past and remember the experiences that they have had there as middle school or elementary students at the 'Pumpkin Night in the Park.' They want others to have similar experiences that they have had.”

See the ALC students’ creativity shine through the candlelight glow of freshly carved jack-o-lanterns at “Pumpkin Night in the Park,” occurring this Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Springbrook Nature Center, 100 85th Ave NW, Fridley.

 

 

The Fridley High School music department students were treated to a special performance by Cantus on October 11, 2017. Cantus is an internationally known eight-member men’s vocal a cappella ensemble based in Minneapolis.

Each year, the artists of Cantus share their love of singing with thousands of students through workshops and master classes to ensure the future of choral arts. The “Cantus High School Residency” is a program that is awarded to three high schools in the Twin Cities metro area each year. Fridley Public Schools was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the three high schools to receive this program for the 2017-18 school year.

The residency is a multi-faceted, year-long program which includes master classes and collaborations with the singers of Cantus, a free in-school concert, free tickets to Cantus home concerts, a “festival day” where schools and directors work together to rehearse and learn, and a culminating concert in spring 2018 featuring the high school choirs and Cantus.

When asked what this experience means to her students, choir director Nikki Zeleny said, “This is everything, to have our amazing Fridley singers get to work with this caliber of talent is beyond cool. We happen to be so lucky that this international touring a cappella group is based here in the cities -- getting to see my students ask insightful questions about these professional singers, and next time sing with them, is a dream.”

Zeleny shared that Cantus had a great selection of pieces. “From classics like Eric Whitacre’s ‘Lux Aurumque’, a choral staple that they also performed at Carnegie Hall, a beautiful arrangement of ‘Wanting Memories’, a Japanese classic ‘Hotaru Koi’, and my personal favorite of the concert, an amazing 8 part arrangement of ‘True Colors’,” said Zeleny.
