To provide inspiration and learning to our future student leaders, Algoma High School has implemented the Focus Fridays series.
Nearly each Friday during the 2017 – 18 school year, a different presenter will speak to our youth about leadership, civic responsibility, goal setting, financial responsibility, physical well-being, along with other related topics.
It is the hope that this series will help build the leadership capacity of our youth. In conjunction with the ‘Bigger. Faster. Stronger.’ program offered Monday – Thursday each week, the primary focus is on our student-athletes, however, all Algoma High School students and staff are welcome to attend any of the presentations.
If you have any questions about the program please contact Teal VanLanen: TVanLanen@alghs.k12.wi.us.
Focus Fridays are held at the Algoma High School in the Little Theater from 3:05 – 3:25 p.m. Please consult the schedule below for speaker and topic information for each session.
Presentation videos are posted as soon as they become available. Click on the date/title in the right-hand menu to access each video.
