SEPTEMBER 2022

Welcome Back from Principal Hand:

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Fridley High School! My name is Patty Hand, and I am the proud principal here at FHS. I am thrilled to serve as a member of this caring 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.


It has been a wonderful start to the school year! I loved the energy and excitement felt throughout our school community.


Go Tigers!


Sincerely,

Patty Hand
