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.

PTO Facebook Page

  • Looking for more information on what the PTO is up to, and how you can help? Make sure you've joined the Fremont PTO group on Facebook. Simply enter "Fremont PTO" in the search bar and you'll answer two questions to gain entry into the group. Once approved, you'll find detailed committee descriptions, school happenings, volunteer opportunities, and an active community that helps to answer questions. For questions contact PTO@fsd79.org.

Yard Sign

  • Show your Fremont pride with a "Home Of a Wildcat" yard sign. Please email Christie Johnson at cjohnson@fsd79.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.

Electronic Birthdays

  • Everyone in the Fremont School District 79 community can celebrate their child's special day! “Happy Birthday, Your Child’s Name” can appear on the Fremont School District 79 electronic message board on the district's campus on Fremont Center Road. Please fill out a birthday form, available in school offices, or email Christie Johnson at cjohnson@fsd79.org for an electronic form. Send in $5 per child for the birthday message (cash or check accepted) before the birthday is scheduled to appear.

Online Student Directory Information

  • If you already have an account in Membership Toolkit, thank you for creating your Membership Toolkit account last year. All accounts have been rolled over for the 2020-2021 school year but you do need to update/confirm your account information to activate your account (see attachment for instructions). If you do not update/confirm your family information and preferences by November 1st, your account will be removed from Membership Toolkit. FYI, the 2020 8th grade graduates have been promoted to Alumni and are no longer appearing in the directory. 

    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 the attached form. 
     
    To gain access to the Online Directory, please pay the $15 PTO Membership Fee thru Venmo @Fremont-PTO; or by bringing or sending this completed PTO Membership form with your cash payment or a check made payable to Fremont PTO to any school front office. Once your payment has been confirmed you will be given 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 don't need access to the online directory to have your child appear in the directory--you just need a Membership Toolkit account. If you want access to the online directory you must pay the $15 PTO Membership Fee. Please help encourage other families to create their Membership Toolkit accounts so we can get as many Fremont students/families in the online directory as possible--class lists will not be complete in the online directory without EVERYONE having an account! 
     
    Please contact Christie Johnson at cjohnson@fsd79.org if you have any questions.
