Farewell Friedell Event Information!

As the school year is quickly coming to a close, Friedell Middle School prepares to say farewell. As you know, on September 15, 2020, the School Board voted to repurpose the Friedell Middle School building at the end of the 2021-2022 school year. We have thoroughly enjoyed the memories, events, learning, and connections made in this wonderful place during the past 20+ years as a middle school. Friedell will always be a part of us all!

Though the time of Friedell as a middle school is coming to a close, Friedell administration, staff, students, and our amazing PTSA have come together to create an event that celebrates Friedell's memories and traditions. This event is an opportunity to bring current students, as well as students from years ago, together to remember their time at Friedell.

The event will take place on May 25, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Friedell Middle School. The event is free, and students, staff, and families of Friedell, current and prior, are invited to celebrate. Join us for food trucks (do need money to purchase), entertainment, handprint and selfie stations, and more. Friedell has limited parking; we ask that the school lot be reserved for those with limited mobility and that all others park in the park-and-ride lots south of Dennys' Restaurant. For any questions please connect with Brooke Olson at 507-328-5650, or by emailing

We look forward to celebrating with you!
