Thank you Fridley school district residents for voting to approve the Fridley Public Schools operating levy referendum on November 5, 2019.

The referendum passed with 60 percent voter approval!

"We are deeply grateful to our community for their support," said Fridley Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Kim Hiel. "This community has always valued its community schools and prioritized the education and futures of our students. Our community's support will provide much needed funding for academic and student support services. We value the high quality academic programs Fridley provides, and we are truly thankful to our community and voters for their trust and confidence that we will continue to prepare our students for college and careers through our rigorous academic programs."

The new operating levy will provide $1.5 million to benefit all Fridley students. These funds will allow Fridley Public Schools to:

  • Invest in academic programs that enhance and enrich student learning
  • Strengthen student support programs including social emotional learning and mental health services
  • Maintain current class sizes
  • Support current staffing levels

In addition to the passage of the referendum, residents elected three candidates to the Fridley School Board. Incumbents Abdisalam Adam and Donna Prewedo were re-elected to the board, as well as Jake Karnopp, who will become the newest board member in January 2020.

Each year, the Fridley-Columbia Heights Rotarians visit the classrooms of Stevenson and Hayes Elementary Schools to deliver a special gift - dictionaries for every third grader at Fridley Public Schools. All students received their own copy of “A Student’s Dictionary” on October 9, 2019, books that were generously donated by the club. 

“One of Rotary International's missions is the encouragement of literacy,” said Rotarian Bob Tholkes, who participates in this project each year. “Dictionary donation as a means of achieving our literacy mission has been widespread among Rotary clubs for many years.”

In the age of technology and electronics, Tholkes admitted that the Rotary Club has debated continuing the donations in the face of the development of online learning, but the value of possessing a hard copy book still remains.

“It’s also very rewarding since it gives us an opportunity to personally interact with students from the area - something we very much enjoy doing,” said Tholkes. “And we are able to introduce ourselves and the club to parents and teachers in the community.”

Along with Tholkes, Fridley Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Kim Hiel distributed the books with Fridley Community Education Senior Programs, Adult Enrichment and Facilities Coordinator Maggie Chandler and Rotarians Fred Bischke, Katie Johnson, Steve Klaers, Craig Malm, and Greg Schraufnagel.

The third grade students eagerly wrote their names in the dictionaries and quickly thumbed through the book to seek out the longest word in the English language. The
young scholars were also excited to read the biographies of United States presidents, practice sign language, and view the map of the seven continents.
