PTO at a Glance
The Fremont School District 79 Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers. The PTO coordinates fundraisers to provide programs and projects to benefit all the students who attend FSD79 schools.
During this unusual year, some things remain the same! Order your 2020-2021 yearbook at www.treering.com. This year's books will surely be full of memories of an "unprecedented" year. All books ordered before October 31st receive a 5% discount.

Show your Fremont pride with a "Home Of a Wildcat" yard sign. Please email Christie Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org for a link to the electronic form, then send in $20 (check made out to FSD79 PTO) to the Fremont Elementary School front office.
Even though we are currently eLearning, we can still celebrate your Fremont Student’s special day! “Happy Birthday, Your Child’s Name” can appear on the Fremont Electronic Message Board. Just complete the attached birthday board form and send it back to any school front office. If you have any questions, please contact Christie Johnson at email@example.com.
The following classrooms still need volunteers for room parents: Bean (pm), McCarthy, Patruno, Boundy, Sizemore, Garcia, Lollino, and Bielfeldt. Please contact Stacie Brown if you are interested at PTO@fsd79.org
