Fridley High School AVID 10-12th grade students attended the Northwestern Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD) Leadership Conference on May 14, 2018 at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest in Brooklyn Park. The conference allowed students to take part in various competitions and workshops, attend a college and career fair and participate in forums. Students from the Fridley African American Student Union, many of whom are also enrolled in the AVID program, presented their own workshop on “microaggression” to conference attendees.

The purpose of the NWSISD Leadership Conference is to introduce and teach skills that promote college and career readiness. Workshop topics included “Average Behavior,” a session which explored ways to think above average, and “How to build a scholarship kit,” which taught students how to prepare their scholarships applications.

“This conference is valuable to our students because it offers them the opportunity to further prepare for college and careers, as well as fine tune their communication and leadership skills,” said AVID Coordinator Liz Jensen.

Students were also able to compete against other students across district borders in various competitions, including AVID Jeopardy, employability skills, and “Shark Tank.”

Prior to the conference, AVID students developed their own presentations and visual displays, exploring either a college or career path. Students expressed ideas that highlighted the benefits of a school of their choice or the steps needed to enter a chosen career.

Sophomore Akira Boney chose the career of a “forensics pathologist,” a career path she is interested in pursuing, to analyze and present. She explored the steps to complete the required education, which totals about 15 years.

Sophomore Olivia Martin-King chose “cosmetology,” a career path she is excited to learn more about.

“I liked this conference because I was able to explore more about my career and research more about different cosmetology careers,” Olivia said. “It was also helpful because it helped me prepare myself with more professionalism and interview skills.”

Other AVID students agreed. Sophomore Reana Hector enjoyed the College and Career Fair portion of the conference because she learned more about the different teaching programs at various colleges.

“I would definitely recommend this field trip to others if they are trying to make plans for themselves for later in life,” Reana said. “This really does help you get more prepared with the skills that you will need.”


  

  

 

Fridley High School staff received teacher innovation grants on behalf of the Fridley Schools Foundation on May 17, 2018. These teacher innovation grants are awarded by the Foundation across the district to enrich educational opportunities for students. Due to the generosity of the community, the Foundation surpassed its $20,000 goal at the inaugural 2018 Black & Gold Gala. With this success, the Foundation is able to bring back the tradition of awarding these grants. 

The innovation grants awarded on to Fridley High School will fund:

  • Livescribe pens to use in Special Education classes
    Teachers can use livescribe pens during lectures to record main points and concepts. These notes will then be uploaded into an audio file. Students can use these notes to review lecture, follow along, and work at their own pace.

  • One height adjustment desk in the Technology Education Department
    With a new height adjustment desk, students can use this station as an alternative to simply sitting at their workstation for the duration of class time.

  • $400 toward GRIT store items
    TIGER GRIT is a new Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) program which began at the start of the 2017-2018 school year. The goal is to frequently reward positive behavior of high school students   so as to improve the culture and climate of the building. Students earn GRIT tickets which they can redeem at the GRIT store. The funding will go toward various items to reward students, including headphones, phone chargers, TIGER gear and more.

  • “9 Square in the Air”
    “9 Square in the Air” is a new game, similar to a combination of volleyball and four square. Students can enjoy this group game in health and physical education classes.

The Fridley Schools Foundation will continue to award teacher innovation grants to staff members throughout the school district.

 

Fridley High School held its 60th Scholastic Achievement & Recognition Banquet on May 18, 2018. The Scholastic Banquet, sponsored by the Fridley Lions Club, is held annually to honor Fridley High School students who have earned high achievements and accolades. The Fridley Schools Foundation awarded 77 scholarships totaling over $115,000 thanks to generous donations from community members and organizations. Three students were also awarded a total of $6,000 Sterling Award scholarships given by the Fridley Alumni Choir.

Additionally, highlights from this year’s event include:
The STRIVE program recognized its 10 senior participants. STRIVE, sponsored through the Fridley-Columbia Heights Rotary Club, is a scholarship program that recognizes and rewards students who show the greatest improvement in grades during their senior year. The program challenges students to improve their work, gain self-confidence and discover the satisfaction of achievement.

The GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) program recognized four students who have been chosen to attend a national Youth Leadership Summit in Washington D.C. this summer. GEAR UP, in partnership with Hennepin Technical College, is a federal college readiness grant program which equips students with the resources and knowledge they need to prepare for post-secondary success. Participation in the upcoming Youth Leadership Summit is exclusive - only 150 students from across the country will be attending. Fridley High School students include graduating seniors: Petra Owusu, Cassandra Corraya, Gabriela Morales, and Chris Vazquez. Students will participate in four days of intense leadership training and will have the opportunity to present what they have learned at the conference’s closing ceremony.

International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Candidates and IB Scholars were also recognized at the award ceremony. IB Diploma Candidates have completed the requirements of the IB Diploma Programme (DP) and are eligible to earn the internationally-recognized IB diploma. An “IB Scholar” is a student who chose to complete a rigorous program of study during the past two years. The students completed at least four IB DP courses, including the completion of the final IB exams. This year, 18 students will graduate as DP Candidates and 25 students will graduate with the IB Scholar distinction.

A first in Fridley High School history, two graduates, Jozefa Vescio Schreiner and Justin Anderson, have officially completed the IB Career-related Programme (CP). The program was first implemented in 2016. Both Schreiner and Anderson were on the Information Technology Career Pathway, one of the two CP pathways that Fridley High School offers. The students took part in the rigorous academics of the DP and focused their learning specifically to their career fields, including the opportunity to earn an industry certification or credential. In addition, they explored skills for success in the workplace, studied an additional language, and participated in community service.

A total of 69 students earned honors designations, while 14 students were awarded the Presidential Education Award. The criteria for this award are: students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above, and have received a score at or above the 80th percentile on a nationally-recognized standard achievement test or nationally-standardized college admission examination.

Fridley Athletics also gave out various awards, including the Tiger For Life, Fridley Activity Trifecta, Triple A Award, Athena Award, Senior MVPs, Senior Athletic Hall of Fame, Marine Corps Semper Fidelis, Marine Corps Scholastic Excellence, and the Marine Corps Outstanding Athlete Award. 

Congratulations Fridley High School Class of 2018! We wish you the best of luck this fall!
