Focus Fridays


Algoma High School Focus Fridays

Focus Fridays

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.

June 1, 2018

Final Focus Friday of 2018.  We are going to review the speakers and topics that were presented for the past school year and have both written and verbal dialogue about the following:

  1. What is one take away you gained from Focus Friday?  (If you have more we’d love to hear or read about them)
  2. What presentations or speakers did you connect with?
  3. Who would you like to see come back again?
  4. What improvements or suggestions do you have?
  5. Do you have other suggestions or feedback from which we can grow?

A handout has been prepared with pictures of each speaker.  Next to the picture there will be a short summary or description of their presentation.  Please bring a pencil/or pen and your willingness to have an open dialogue about Focus Friday.
