Thank You Fremont Families

THANK YOU! Our Fremont Families Soar! We have met our goal of $10,000 with 360 Fundraising. This means that we will have CRAZY HAIR DAY! This also means Dr. Coogan will be dying her hair a color chosen by the class that sold the most. Come by for a visit in the morning of October 10th to see what color Dr. Coogan hair will be and see all the crazy hair. This will also be the day that those that sold enough will “Ride in a Limo to Lunch”. Permission slips will be coming home soon. Please make sure that you sign them and return them. We have approximately 68 students that have qualified for this fun adventure.

10 Reasons To Get Involved

 

1. Your child benefits.

When parents get connected to the school, children do better. Research shows children whose parents are involved get better grades, do better on tests, and have fewer discipline problems at school.

2. We make a difference.

Our mission is to create a kind of school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work—and so can our children. We provide support and resources for teachers in and out of the classroom. We help enrich the learning opportunities for our children. We are striving to build the kind of supportive, caring atmosphere that makes school fun.

 

3. Meet nice people who share your concerns.

We all have a common bond. We care about creating the best possible educational experience for our children. We are neighbors and peers who share many of the same experiences, and many friendships have developed as a result of those connections.

 

4. We have fun.

Volunteer work shouldn’t be drudgery. We accomplish a lot, and not everything we do is easy. But we know we’re not balancing the national debt, either. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, and we try to enjoy our- selves along the way whenever possible

 

5. There’s a lot to be done.

These days, schools are asked to do more with less. Our help is needed more than ever to fill the gaps.

 

6. We Pledge to Honor Your Time Constraints.

People are often reluctant to participate because they’re afraid they’ll get pulled into a black hole of never-ending time commitment. That won’t happen here. An hour or two a semester really makes a difference. We promise not to push you to commit more than you want to or are able to.

 

7. We can match jobs to your interests and abilities.

The work we do covers a broad spectrum: filing and photocopying, planning and executing events, writing and editing, working directly with children, managing a budget and cash flow, and lots more. We encourage creative ideas, and we’re thrilled to have people take on tasks that meet their skills and interests.

 

8. We’re about parent involvement, not fundraising.

In these times of tight budgets, parent groups everywhere are having to fill int he gaps, and so are we. But our number one goal is to get more parents connected to the school. That’s because more than 300 independent research studies show that building parent involvement in education is the number one thing we can do to create a great school and improve student performance.

9. We’re welcoming.

To us, there are no “outsiders.” We are people who have come together to work toward common goals. We couldn’t be happier to have you join us in working toward these goals.

 

10. This work is very rewarding.

It’s seeing the bright light of learning sparkle in a child’s eye. It’s seeing the smile that shows we’re making school a little more fun—and a child feel a little more comfortable in a learning environment. It’s learning that test scores have risen and knowing we played a role. There are lots of rewards, both big and small, for those who get involved. Won’t you join us?

Bills in Congress that will Divert Public School Funds

This is an urgent matter brought to us by our National PTA.

Please share this information with your membership and ask them to access National PTA’s action alert from the Takes Action Network http://takesaction.pta.org.

A series of pro-voucher bills have been introduced in the U.S. Congress in 2014. The bills recently introduced are picking up Congressional support and would be devastating to public education funding. Combined – they would divert nearly all federal education funding to school vouchers. The Alexander bill is particularly alarming, as Senator Alexander serves as the top Republican Ranking Member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee that has jurisdiction over federal education policy.

National PTA opposes any private school choice proposal and/or voucher system that diverts public funds to private or sectarian schools. Here is a link to several positions by National PTA – especially note statement under “School Choice”: http://www.pta.org/about/content.cfm?ItemNumber=1294

Here are some talking points:

Vouchers divert money from public schools (where 90 percent of all school-age children are enrolled) to private schools (where the public has no oversight into how those public dollars are spent), while doing nothing to improve public education.
Vouchers will not ensure parental “choice.” Private and religious schools may deny applications for enrollment for any reason. The “choice” in “choice programs” lies with private school administrators, not with parents.
There is no strong evidence that voucher programs improve student achievement.
When provided the opportunity to comment on vouchers, Americans have consistently rejected them.
Thank you for your help!!

Books on Wheels is a take home book program for 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students.The programs offers Fremont students the opportunity to take home a book at their DRA reading level each day. At the beginning of the school year, each child is given a book bag and a reading log. Each school day, a volunteer checks the book bags to see if the child has read his or her book, if they have, the volunteer gives the child a new book. The Books on Wheels program is in need of a new coordinator.This is a year-long position. The coordinator is responsible for maintaining the condition of the books and all materials pertaining to the program. They will also be in charge of recruiting, training and maintaining a volunteer base. This position is labor/time intensive at the beginning of the school year, but requires only and hour or so a week after that. You will not have to do it alone, there are 3 coordinators who are still very active volunteers at the school and can assist you when needed.
