June 2021

Congratulations, Class of 2021! We are so proud of you!

Senior News:

As a final reminder, our 2021 Commencement will be held at the Fridley High School football field on Thursday, June 3rd, at 7 pm. Gates will open at 6:15 pm and you and your guests must have your tickets to enter.

Commencement Tickets

  • Due to recent guidelines on outdoor gatherings, we are able to safely accommodate four guests per senior at the field.

  • Seniors will receive tickets on Tuesday, June 1, or Wednesday, June 2, throughout the day, in the media center, once your student has dropped off their Chromebook, charger, and case.

  • Any student who does not drop off their Chromebook will not receive a ticket to graduation.


Mandatory Commencement Practice

  • Mandatory graduation practice for seniors only will be held on Wednesday, June 2nd, starting at 11:00 am with lunch in the cafeteria, and the program beginning at 11:30 am in the auditorium.

  • Dress for the weather (including rain) and wear comfortable shoes as we will be outside practicing on the football field for a few hours.
