Fourth graders Kristina Sprintsanu and Yette Kiibus and first grader Naya Kiibus will hold an original art and lemonade sale this Saturday, February 28 at 4 p.m. next to Chase Bank on Second Street in Belmont Shore. Pick up a hand-crafted piece of student art and support S.O.S.!
Fremont kindergarten parent, Katie Perry, is hosting a Jamberry Nails fundraiser for S.O.S. Twenty percent of all sales will be donated to S.O.S. If sales reach $500, 30% of all sales will be donated. Order through the fundraiser party HERE. Or, shop from Katie directly at www.katiegraceperry.jamberrynails.net just make sure to select the fundraiser party during checkout!
It’s time to take the S.O.S. challenge! Commit to your scholar’s education by helping to fund Fremont’s Science and Technology Labs!
How much do the labs cost? About $180/school year per student, which is $15/month or $1/school day. We need everyone’s contribution to meet our goal. How?
Subscribe Monthly. Take the challenge! Monthly subscription is the easiest way to fulfill your family’s contribution. Spread out your payment over the year ($15/month per child) – just set it and forget it! New this year: All current and new monthly subscribers will receive an S.O.S. Challenge button!
A flat donation is another way to do your part. Write a check, pay online, or contribute cash raised through fundraising.
Either way, all contributions are tax deductible and can be combined to receive fun gifts! (Tax ID#33-0357679)
Remember, any amount is critical to reaching our goal – $180 per student will cover approximately 85% of the overall cost. That’s only $15/month! All families who contribute at the following levels will receive gifts:
- Golden Falcon: $540 – Attend Fremont Family Movie Morning at the Long Beach Art Theatre on March 21 PLUS Vote on the movie and receive a VIP Goodie Bag (and all incentives below).
- Mighty Oak: $360 – Attend Fremont’s Family Movie Morning at the Long Beach Art Theatre (and below).

We’ve got the best teachers at Fremont…here’s a special opportunity to let them know!
Would you like to recognize one or more of the teachers your child has been fortunate to have during their time at Fremont? Now you can by submitting an essay to the annual Teacher of the Year Essay Contest (sponsored by the Long Beach Council PTA). Essays may be written by a parent or a student, or it can be a joint effort! Even alumni students looking back fondly on their time at Fremont can submit an entry. Please take a moment to let any of our teachers know what they have meant to your child/family and how much you appreciate them. All entries will be shared with the appropriate teacher, who will certainly be grateful for your thoughts and effort.
Please click to download the Teacher of the Year Information sheet and the Teacher of the Year Form and then follow these specific guidelines carefully:
Typed or handwritten
Double spaced with 1” margins
2 single-sided pages maximum
Prepare a brief narrative for the following questions (be as specific as possible):
1. What qualities make the teacher outstanding?
2. How does the teacher exemplify being a good role model?
3. What techniques does the teacher use to be able to reach all students?
4. How does the teacher provide a positive learning environment where all students can thrive?
5. How does the teacher make learning fun?
All entries are due by 2:30pm on Friday,
March 20th in the PTA Mailbox,
located in the Fremont office.
The selected essay will be sent to the Long Beach Council PTA for further consideration.
A committee will meet to review all essays submitted by the deadline and select this year’s winner. If you interested in participating on this committee, please contact Kelly Sullivan at KSullivan211@verizon.net.
