Dear Eagle Families,
Welcome to Fremont Elementary School, a California Gold Ribbon School, a Title One Academic Achievement School, a Character & Civic Education Bonner Award recipient, and the home of the Soaring Eagles. The teachers and staff at Fremont Elementary are focused on providing a strong hybrid learning format that engages each student and helps to develop 21st century learning skills necessary to be successful throughout his or her educational and professional career. Our hybrid learning format will include opportunities for students to build responsibility and respect, as well as foster a sense of giving and duty through service-learning.
Our students are the heartbeat of our community. School spirit flows throughout our halls as students practice the Eagle Way daily. Our school was built in 1938 as part of the Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works. This was part of the New Deal of 1933 in response to the Great Depression. It built large-scale public works such as dams, bridges, hospitals, and schools. Fremont was fortunate to be a part of this grant.
This handbook provides general information regarding our elementary school procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please read the handbook with your child and refer to it as needed throughout the school year. It is our goal to protect the health and safety of our students and staff. We value the partnership we have with our Fremont families. Opportunities for parent-involvement on campus will be limited this year as we practice the recommended CDC safety guidelines to ensure our campus is healthy. We will utilize google meets for our School Site Council and English Learners’ Advisory Committee. The Marshall-Fremont PTO will continue to actively support both schools and hold virtual meetings during the school year.
Communication between school and home will be crucial. The partnership between the teacher and parent will be important in establishing a strong relationship to ensure students are supported in their academia. Attendance online and in class will be of equal importance. Students cannot learn if they are not active in their learning in the classroom and online.
We will use the ParentSqaure tool for all communication. Please make time to sign up for this tool. If you are not registered in our system and we do not have an updated email for you, call the office. Our school marquee will also be updated weekly with school information.
The 2020-2021 school year will be a historic year for our school and the district. We are treading new water; but with perseverance and grit, we will make this the year our Eagles soared higher than ever.
