• Congratulations to our Volunteer of the Month for December:

    Kristen Shumaker!

    Originally from Mississippi where she taught 1 st grade for 10 years, Kristen and her
    husband moved to LA in 2015 for her husband to pursue his doctorate in clinical
    psychology. This is her second year as a room parent at Fremont: Kristen’s son, Layton
    (7) is a first grader in Mrs. Schilling’s kinder/1st split class.  She has volunteered in the
    classroom, as well as baked goods for teacher appreciation week.  In addition to her
    volunteering efforts at Fremont, Kristen has been on the parent board the past two
    years at her daughter's preschool.   Layton has two siblings who will soon join him at
    Fremont: Charlee (4), Kristen’s daughter, will be in kindergarten next year at Fremont,
    and her youngest son, Ben (2) will start preschool next year. Kristen says, “We love
    Fremont and the Montrose community!”

    Here is what one member of the community had to say about Kristen:
    “She went above and beyond for [Mrs. Schilling’s] Christmas party this year.  She is so
    kind and organized.  And she has 3 kids, the littlest of which came with her while we
    decorated for the Christmas party (she brought lights to hang all around to make it extra
    Thank you, Kristen for being such a giving member of the Fremont Family!
