TOP TEN REASONS TO VOLUNTEER AT FREMONTPosted by J.S. at 11/22/2013 8:00:00 AMBy Betsy Wilbur, PTA PresidentWow! We get a whole week off for Thanksgiving this year! I’m very thankful for that. And on the subject of being thankful … I am also very grateful for our school.We are so fortunate to be able to offer amazing programs that give our children and teachers the best possible school experience. Fremont’s reputation for excellence comes from many places ... yes, our teachers are fantastic and our staff is wonderful. But the real key? Our parents. Over the past seven years I have had the privilege of working alongside some of the most enthusiastic, caring, hard-working parents out there. The parents of the Class of 2014 have been especially involved and responsible for much of what the entire school benefits from today.Unfortunately, we are loosing a big group of super-involved parents next year as they move on to Rosemont. What does this mean? We need more of you to step up next year doing things outside of the classroom! Don’t wait to get involved. I can tell you firsthand that those seven years fly by. Elementary School is really the only time you are able to be intimately involved in your child’s school experience - and that experience is much more than just inside the classroom. The activities and programs coordinated by PTA and PAC give our kids lasting memories and enrichment. Don’t let the opportunity slip away to be a part of that.
So, here are the ...
TOP TEN REASONS TO VOLUNTEER AT FREMONT:10. Your child(ren) will think you are awesome.
What child’s eyes don’t light up when they see Mommy or Daddy helping out at their school? Well maybe a sixth-grader’s eyes are too busy rolling, but deep down you know they’re still proud of you. By volunteering at school you are showing your child(ren) that school is important … something that will help motivate them to do well.
9. You can add new skills to your resume.
If you’re ever looking for a new job it will look great to have some volunteer activities on your resume, showing you picked up new skills and displayed leadership and organizational responsibility.
8. You want Fremont to continue to be one of the best schools in our area.
Of course, Fremont has great academics, teachers and staff. But what makes it truly exceptional? All the extras we have that are only made possible by our parents. By volunteering, you make sure all of those programs continue to be available for students now and in the future.
7. You get to know your child(ren)’s friends and activities.
I love walking down the hall and having my kids’ classmates say, “Hello Mrs. Wilbur.” I love knowing almost all of the sixth-grade students by first name and I also know many of their parents (still working on the second-graders). And when my kids mention something that’s happening at school I know what they’re talking about!
6. Your children will do better in school.
More than 85 research studies conducted over the past 30 years show that kids do better when their parents are involved at school. Grades are higher. Test scores improve. Attendance increases. It’s also linked to higher rates of graduation and pursuit of higher education.
5. You will get to know the teachers and staff and they will get to know you.
The more events you volunteer for, the more you’ll get to know the teachers and staff. You’ll also gain a greater knowledge and appreciation for what they do.
4. Your life will be enriched by other Fremont parents – and you’ll have fun!
One of the things that struck me right away during our first year at Fremont was how many kind and generous parents there were. I feel so blessed to have been surrounded by these people, and have what I expect will be lifelong friendships with many of them. We met and became close because of our volunteer work at Fremont. And we had a great time doing it!
3. You want our teachers to be great!
By helping in the classroom and with prep work you are letting them focus on the important stuff ... teaching. By volunteering to help with fundraisers, you are ensuring we have state-of-the-art tools for them as well as programs to help them augment the classroom experience. All of our volunteer opportunities somehow benefit our teachers, whether directly or indirectly.
2. You will be more informed about what is happening at school.
Involved parents have better access to information about what is happening at the school, which allows you to be a better advocate for your child.
And the number 1 reason to volunteer at Fremont:
You are making the world a better place by helping children. Nothing is a better use of your time.
So … now that you are all excited to get your Volunteer shoes on, visit the Volunteer Page on our website to find the jobs that best fit your interests and schedule. Our 2014-2015 Nominating Committee will be sending a notice out soon about which positions are available. Pick one and be a part of our Fremont Parent Volunteer Team!Contact our Nominating Committee Chair Nancy Soltero at email@example.com and let her know how you’d like to help next year.

DID YOU KNOW ... ABOUT THE A.M. ANNOUNCEMENTS?Posted by J.S. at 9/7/2013 8:00:00 AMEach morning a Fremont sixth-grader has the honor of reading some "words of wisdom" over the loud speaker for all of the school to hear.These announcements, part of the Project Wisdomprogram, involve a short lesson followed by a signature sign-off: "Make it a great day ... or not. The choice is yours."That's good advice for kids and adults both!Here are a few of the past announcements:CHARACTERHave you every noticed that it's easier to do the right thing when someone is watching you, like when your teacher is watching you take an exam? Think about it. When your teacher is watching, you're probably going to do the right thing and not look at your neighbor's paper, right?It's harder to do the right thing when no one is looking, don't you think? You can say to yourself, "Oh, well, no one will ever know," but guess what? You will know, and then you will feel bad about yourself because you did the wrong thing and you know you did the wrong thing.Somebody wise once said: Character is doing the right thing when no one is looking.Next time you are tempted to make a poor choice because no one is looking, remember this: Someone really is looking. You are looking, and what you think about you is important.Make it a great day ... or not. The choice is yours.ATTITUDEThere's an old story about two stone-cutters. When asked what they were doing, the first stone-cutter replied, "I'm cutting this stone into blocks." When asked the same question, the second stone-cutter replied, "I'm building a great church."The way we see the world can change in an instant with a simple change in our thinking. For example: If your attitude toward school is negative, guess what. Your time spent at school will be negative. If you see school as a chance to learn and grow and meet great people, guess what? You will be happy with going to school.The English say it this way: All happiness is in the mind.It's simple, but true. Today, notice how you think about school and the world around you.Make it a great day ... or not. The choice is yours.MANNERSDid you know that Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts have special rules they live by? One of those rules is being well-mannered. The Scout Law says: Good manners make it easier for people to get along.In other words, Scouts believe that when people are polite to each other, they get along better. Why? Because when we are being well-mannered, we are being respectful. We don't hurt other people's feelings. We say "please" and "thank you," we share with others, we let others go first, and we take turns.What do you think? Do you think if everyone had good manners, people would get along better? Today, follow the Scout Law and use your very best manners. It's a good rule for living.Make it a great day ... or not. The choice is yours.
LETTER FROM THE PTA PRESIDENTPosted by J.S. at 9/6/2013 5:00:00 PMWelcome to the 2013-14 School Year!It has been so great to meet our new Fremont families and reunite with the returning members of the fabulous, friendly Fremont Community over the last few weeks. I have a second-grader and a sixth-grader this year, so I’m starting to get very nostalgic about our journey over the past six years and why I feel so fortunate to be a part of Fremont. I love walking down Rosemary Avenue in the morning with our neighbors on the way to school. I love hearing my kids talk excitedly about something awesome that happened at school. I love the relationships that our parents have with each other and with the staff. I have loved to watch my children and my friends’ children blossom socially and academically in a caring, loving environment. Our PTA theme this year is “Our common core is caring” – something that I am proud to witness every day.
I’m entering my second (and last!) term as PTA President this year and am looking forward to another great year. With the help of our amazing parents and staff I’m hoping we can meet some new goals this year in making Fremont even better!
My first goal is to continue to foster improved communication and informationdissemination to parents.
- Thanks to our volunteer webmaster (and Fremont parent) Jacqueline Stenson and other parent contributors, the Fremont website is now a one-stop-shop for all things Fremont. From the interactive calendar to the classroom pages and downloadable forms, we hope you find the site a useful tool. And there’s more coming! Watch for updates on new features we will be able to offer our parents and teachers.
- Last year the production of our eDateline switched from the front office to a parent volunteer (the wonderful Jennifer Sandberg). This has allowed us to provide richer content and resources for our readers.
- Thanks to Tracy Leventhal, we now have an online store where you can purchase Spirit Wear, yearbooks and PTA memberships with your credit card.
Another goal is to increase the safety of our students.
- Under the guidance of parent volunteer Maureen Regan we recently completed new landscaping in front of Classrooms 1 – 8. The landscaping upgrade incorporated the new backpack hooks, creating a safer environment inside and outside the classroom.
- We have a new Safety Committee (led by parent volunteer Lisa Schellenbach) that will be looking at ways to make the routes to school and drive-thru lane safer and make sure the procedures are clear to parents.
- Thanks to parent volunteer Randa Shammaa, we brought a free TB Clinic to Fremont this year for the first time ever to make sure our parents had the clearance needed to volunteer in the classrooms.
- We have funded a brand new position called an “I Care Rep” that will provide additional supervision on the playground and drive-thru lane. The I Care Rep will be trained in the Olweus Bully Prevention program and will use those philosophies to help our children resolve conflicts and continue to foster an environment of respect and kindness at Fremont.
- In addition to the I Care Rep position, we have provided funding to our Bully Prevention Coordinating Committee to help them with purchases for their outreach and activities. We are so fortunate to be piloting this incredible program at Fremont – watch for dates on an upcoming parent information night.
And finally, my last goal is to find and support more programs that enrich the academic and personal experiences of our students.
- This year we will offer students expanded arts education through our new Music Docent Program. Thanks to Cheyenne Wilbur and Zac Matthews for coordinating this new adventure, allowing our children to study orchestras, composers, opera, jazz, rhythms and more.
- We will also be offering after school Coding/Programming classes which we hope will eventually become part of the Fremont computer curriculum, giving our children an advantage in high school, college and the eventual job market.
None of this would be possible without the tireless work of our parents. Thank you to everyone who comes to volunteer at Fremont. Our children all benefit because of your devotion. Together we ensure that Fremont continues to be one of the most highly regarded schools in the area.
Be a part of our success!On Aug. 15 we kicked off our PTA Membership Drive with the goal of 100% participation (at least one membership) from each family. Membership is only $8.00 per year and you do not have to attend our monthly meetings to join! Another goal of mine is that Fremont have more PTA memberships this year than any other school in the district – let’s show everyone the kind of support our parents give our school. Click here to download the Membership Form and join PTA today!
NEW API SCORES RELEASEDPosted by J.S. at 9/6/2013The new Academic Performance Index (API) numbers are in, and Fremont scored an 894, which is well ahead of California's statewide performance target of at least 800. Scores can range from 200 to 1,000.But Fremont's number declined from last year's adjusted score of 914.
"Unfortunately we did drop, however the majority of the state did as well," says Principal Ms. Christin Molano-Walley. "The CST (California Standards Tests) was changed to reflect the upcoming Common Core State Standards (CCSS). However our instruction did not change last year because the CCSS were not being implemented yet. So ... the test did not match our instruction which was frustrating. I am disappointed that we dropped. However I know that last year we had actually more interventions and even higher quality instruction than in years past so I am confident that our students had a successful year. The CST is only one measure of the students' knowledge and subject competency."The CSTs will be given again next spring, says Ms. Molano-Walley, and the following year students will take the Common Core assessments.The overall API score for GUSD was 861, down one point from 2012.
