Character & Ethics
The Glendale Unified School District embraces character-building and ethical behavior as a way of life. At Fremont, we incorporate the Word-of-the-Month (a positive character trait such as honesty, loyalty, courtesy, etc.) into our monthly Spirit Assembly. Also honored at the assembly is the Citizen-of-the-Month student, selected from each class in grades 1 through 6 by the teacher, based on the student’s demonstration of that trait. Through programs and activities, students are encouraged to exhibit good character and ethical choices. Additionally, all sixth-graders are required to fulfill 10 hours of community service prior to promotion.
