For more than 130 years, Fergus Falls schools have prepared students for success.   It wasn’t always easy.  The very first classes were held in what had to be an “aromatic” horse barn on the Ottertail River and only a month after starting, the first teacher eloped!  More than one school has burned down and sometimes the various native languages such as Norwegian and German made teaching more difficult.

But the love for the schools has also shown through these many years.  Even now, with new challenges, budget concerns and an uncertain world, people realize the value of a Fergus Falls Public School education.

The 544 Education Foundation’s goal is to meet some of those challenges with your help.  The Foundation, incorporated as a non-profit 501 (c) (3) in September of 2000, provides additional resources to make more future success stories.  The Foundation’s priority is students. It doesn’t get more basic than that.

If you’re a graduate or friend of Fergus Falls High School, welcome!  Look around, make contacts, give us feedback or your news and please consider joining the Foundation. Memberships help keep us going; larger gifts can make a difference in the life of a child.

    Mindy, could you please suggest that the Class of 1960 make a decision of a Class Reunion ASAP. Some of us who live far away need 4 to 6 months to plan our travel. Thanks, Hollis

    • Hollis-
      I did reach out to Sharon Johnson when you sent me this message and she said they were meeting soon (at that point) and would let me know. I haven’t heard back from her. Just an FYI…
