Proud parents and family members watched their kindergarten-ready 4-year-olds graduate from Fridley Preschool on June 6, 2019 in the district auditorium. The 140 preschool students and future Class of 2032, performed songs they had practiced in class and walked across the auditorium stage to receive miniature diplomas from their teachers. Graduation ceremonies were held for both the morning and afternoon preschool sessions.

In 2016, then Governor Mark Dayton and Minnesota state legislators initiated the Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK), a program that provided free early childhood education in several school districts across the state. The funding allowed Fridley Public Schools to provide high-quality early learning programming at no cost to families. Fridley Preschool is a 4-star Parent Aware-rated program and ensures that the district’s earliest learners are ready as they step foot into kindergarten. The program also focuses on the International Baccalaureate (IB) Transdisciplinary Themes and Learner Profile values – aligning with the district’s IB program. This readily prepares 3- and 4-year-old students to begin their IB journey.

“Fridley Preschool provides a great foundation for our students in the district and we are so proud to offer this to our families,” said Preschool Principal Jason Bodey. “They begin the IB process at an early age, and our students walk into kindergarten already knowing the IB language and concepts. It really sets them up for success.”

The excited preschool graduates displayed their excitement as they were called “kindergarteners” for the first time at the conclusion of the ceremony. Many of the students will be continuing into the Primary Years Programme at the district’s elementary IB World School -  Hayes and Stevenson elementary schools this fall.

“We would like to thank all of the families for entrusting us with their child for the school year,” said Beckstrand. “We have seen our students grow over the past year, so this has been an extremely proud moment to watch them all as they sang their songs, walked across the stage, and had such a special moment with their teachers and families.”

Fridley Public Schools is an IB World School district that offers the IB Continuum programmes to K-12 students. The IB curriculum framework prepares students for college and careers with rigorous coursework through the Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme, Diploma Programme and Career-related Programme. IB, an inquiry-led framework, provides a holistic educational experience by focusing on developing the “whole child.”

Fridley Middle School honored the Class of 2023 at the annual 8th grade recognition ceremony on May 31, 2019. Parents, family and friends gathered in the Fridley High School gym to celebrate this significant milestone.

“We want to take time to celebrate and recognize your growth as learners and young adults over the past four years,” said Principal Amy Cochran. “As your middle school years conclude and your high school experience begins, I want to encourage you to continue to envision your future. Work toward the future that you want and embrace all the hard work required to attain your goals and dreams.”

Recognition was given to students who placed in the History Day competition, performed well at the St. Cloud Math Contest, and those who earned high-achievement in academics. The ceremony also recognized students who participated in various activities, including student council, Builder’s Club, choir and theatre, or earned a high school athletic letter.

Four 8th grade students, Amayramy Ruiz Barrios, Alen Kahrimanovic, Khaliifo Aden and Veronique Kolibe-Gnamikou gave student speeches, all of which reflected on their time at Fridley Middle School, as well as the years ahead. Chosen by the class of 2023, the faculty address was given by science teacher, Ms. Sarah Bennek. 

A total of 239 students received a certificate for completing eighth grade. Click to view full photo album
