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 (cash or check made out to FSD79 PTO) to the Fremont Elementary School front office.
If you enjoy putting together projects for kids, we could use your help in the K-5 classrooms. We have plenty of resources and training sessions available to help you with any level. The classroom teacher is also there to assure you have a positive experience. You do NOT need to have a background in teaching or art. Contact Jen Crow for more information: email@example.com.

Spirit Wear Order
The spirit wear orders ended September 6 and are now in production. When orders are ready, they will be sent home with your child. Due to the fact that they are custom orders, production generally takes 3-4 weeks from the end of the sale.
The PTO will be hosting our annual Holiday Boutique on November 16. We are currently looking for any Fremont families that would like to be a vendor. Please contact Bari Dacks at Bari79@aol.com if you are interested.
Online Student Directory Information
The PTO is excited to announce that we are moving our student directory (formerly known as the Buzz Book) online! All parents need to do is set up an account on the Membership Toolkit website, pay the $15 PTO membership fee and the online student directory (which is active now). Please see the attached file to view the instructions to have your family in the directory and gain access to the online student directory. If you have any questions, please contact Christie Johnson at email@example.com.
