Wake up and Walk Program
- Every morning students at Freedom will participate in our Wake up and Walk Program. PE Teachers, paraprofessionals, and other teachers join in to walk with our kids. We will be walking the trails around the school. It will take approximately 15-minutes and kids join in as they arrive on the playground in the morning before school starts. Statistics show an increase in learning as a result of morning exercise. Physical activity programs are linked to stronger academic achievement, increased concentration and improved math, reading and writing test scores.
2014-15 Boundary Information
- As residents on the south side of the district, Freedom families know that we are experiencing exponential growth as a district and as a city.
The opening of Independence Elementary this fall means new school attendance areas. Based on the location of Independence (at 3700 54th Street S in Fargo) and the projected enrollment at Freedom, a portion of Freedom’s current attendance area has been reallocated to Independence. The area that will feed Independence is bounded on the north by 32nd Avenue South…on the south by 52nd Avenue South…by Veteran’s Boulevard on the west…and by 45th Street South on the east.
Even after the opening of Independence this fall, the district will still need to engage in temporary grade level adjustments in order to alleviate projected overcrowding. Thus, for the 2014-15 school year, Freedom Elementary will house approximately 60 kindergarten students from the area bounded on the north by I-94…on the south by 32nd Avenue South…by the Sheyenne River on the west…and by 45th Street South on the east.
While we hate to say goodbye to members of the Freedom family, we are excited about the changes in WFPS and at Freedom specifically!

The Freedom faculty believes in the vision of Every Child, Every Day – which means helping every student display positive attitudes, improve academic performance, and positioning for a promising future. Our school Pathways To Success outline that we are ‘All In’ so that every adult and every student counts in a major way developing good relationships built on mutual respect, caring, trust and high expectations. We believe that the little things we do every day add up to create the whole and our students need to know we are committed to understanding them as individuals and caring about their personal circumstances in order to improve academically, and that building a culture of caring provides the necessary framework for how we implement 21st Century Learning Skills.
