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.
Holiday treasures orders will start to be sent home this week, so be on the lookout! To keep everything a secret- Every item ordered comes with a holiday sealable bag to keep the items a mystery but your child will still need to place the items in those bags.
Family Paint Night
Join us on Zoom on Friday, December 3 & 10 to create one of three holiday projects! (See this flyer for details). Sign up at www.buffaloplaidstudios.com and select Fremont Fundraiser by November 19. $20 includes all supplies needed to create the project and step-by-step Zoom instruction!
PTO Meeting Dates
All Meetings will be held in the Middle School Den at 6 p.m. (unless otherwise noted)
** May 18 meeting will be held off site-location TBD

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.
Winter Party Hosts
Party Hosts for the Winter Classroom Parties have been assigned and notified. Each class party is designated 3 Party Hosts. If more than 3 parents signed up for a classroom party, volunteers were chosen at random. Please note: All remaining parents who have not been notified, have not been assigned to host a party will not be invited to attend the party. Winter party checks will be sent home at the beginning of the week of 12/6. The first parent listed for each classroom will be receiving the party check.
Chicago Wolves Game
Save the date & sign up no later than January 14 to join FSD79 family and friends for an afternoon of fun at a Chicago Wolves hockey game Saturday, January 29. Everyone will receive a free Chicago Wolves hat and be seated together in the same section. See this flyer for additional details.
PTO Membership/Online Directory for 2021-22
If you already have an account in Membership Toolkit, thank you for creating and/or updating your Membership Toolkit account last year. All accounts have been rolled over for the 2021-22 school year but you do need to update/confirm your account information to activate your account. If you do not update/confirm your family information and directory preferences by November 1, your account will be removed from Membership Toolkit.
If you don't have an account in Membership Toolkit, set it up now for free! Once you have created an account in Membership Toolkit your child will appear in the online directory immediately (that's if you choose to do so). To create an account, go to fsd79.membershiptoolkit.com and follow the directions in this form.
To gain access to Online Student Directory your account must be active and you must pay the $15 PTO Membership Fee. You can pay the $15 PTO Membership fee thru Venmo @Fremont-PTO; or by bringing or sending this form with your cash payment or check made payable to Fremont PTO to any school front office. Once we receive confirmation of your payment we will give you access to the online directory. Please note it may take up to one week to be granted access to the online directory.
Don't forget to download the FREE Membership Toolkit app to your smartphone-search "Membership Toolkit" in your app store.
NOTE: You must have a Membership Toolkit account for your child to appear in the online directory. If you want access to the Online Student Directory you must pay the $15 PTO Membership Fee. If you don't want to pay the $15 PTO Membership Fee your child will appear in the directory but you won't have access to view the Online Student Directory. Please help encourage other families to create their FREE Membership Toolkit account so we can get as many Fremont students/families in the online directory as possible--class lists will not be complete in the Online Student Directory without EVERYONE having an account and assigning a teacher to their student!
Please contact Christie Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
