FRIDLEY HIGH SCHOOL, IB WORLD SCHOOL

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Fridley High School.  My name is Patty Awsumb and I am the new head principal at FHS.  I am thrilled to become a member of this supportive community whose focus is to support success for each and every student.  I believe strongly in leading a culturally responsive community of learners, in which students, staff members, and families collaborate to support our climate to ensure it is a caring, inclusive community for all.  This belief will anchor all my work going forward and will focus all ideas, thoughts, and decisions made in the best interest of our students.

To give you a bit about my background, I began my career as an English teacher for many years at Park Center High School, in the Osseo School District.  I later became a dean of students at Fridley High School for one year, and moved to St. Michael-Albertville High School to work as their assistant principal for two years.  I then transferred to the Hopkins School District for the last eight years, serving in the roles of assistant principal, associate principal, and for the last five years, as the head principal at Hopkins High School.  I am excited to come “home” to FHS to serve as the head principal, and look forward to working with your students.  

Again, welcome to Fridley High School as we embark on an exciting, new school year. Go Tigers!

This month we continue to celebrate outstanding women who have taught us how to be better human beings. Harriet Tubman was definitely one of those. Harriet was born into slavery but later escaped. After achieving freedom she put her own life in danger over and over again rescuing hundreds of slaves in the South and leading them to freedom. Her nickname was Moses. She also was an armed scout spy in the American civil war. Harriet Tubman later went on to helping the Women's suffrage group to help women have the right to vote. She said, “ Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”  Harriet Tubman has become an icon of American courage and freedom and we are grateful for her example as a strong female figure.  This week please continue to notice and thank the strong female figures in your life.

This month we celebrate the accomplishments of women as we move forward in promoting equality for all in a peaceful and educational manner.

One such example of this can be found in Eleanor Roosevelt who left an enduring mark on women’s rights, civil rights, international affairs, and voting rights. She consistently campaigned for the Roosevelt administration to hire women for executive level appointments and fought for fair housing for African Americans.

Eleanor Roosevelt wanted ALL people, not just women, to get involved in supporting our country and becoming active members in our communities. She said “we cannot keep our system strong and free by neglect, by taking it for granted, by giving it our second-best attention.”

This week please celebrate Women's History Month with us by thanking a strong female figure in your life.
