Fosston High School to be Recognized at State Capitol For Life Story Project

A small delegation representing Fosston High School will be heading to the state capitol in St. Paul on Thursday, May 25th to receive the 2017 Minnesota Promising Practices Award. The award recognizes a successful, specific and unique practice created by a school that promotes positive character development. Fosston High School is being recognized for this prestigious award for their Life Story Project. Fosston High School Principal Patty Johnson is excited about receiving the Promising Practices award


The sophomore students visited with Essentia Health First Care Living Center residents and families to create Life Story memory books. On January 27, 2017 they presented the hardcover Life Storybooks to the residents that they had been working with during first semester. The Life Story Project was inspired by Bemidji author Will Weaver's book Memory Boy.
