Parent University

Fremont School District 79 is excited to introduce Parent University, an opportunity to further connect our Fremont families to their students' educational experience. In partnership with the PTO, the District is offering programming on a variety of topics related to the District's goals that might interest our parent community.

This year's focus will be on student safety, math, social-emotional health and wellness, technology use, and more. It is not required to RSVP, however, we ask that you please do so if you plan to take advantage of childcare, which will be provided by Fremont Middle School students for individuals ages 3+.

We sincerely hope that you will take advantage of these engagements to strengthen our partnership.

Supporting our Children in their Hardest Moments
Monday, Oct. 16 • 6:30 p.m. • Middle School DEN
1-hour presentation, Q&A to follow

Our children are struggling emotionally in unprecedented ways and often, as parents, we struggle to know how to respond to their most challenging moments. Over the past several years, research has helped us understand these challenging moments better and have given us new tools to help our children when they are struggling. Psychologist and educator, Dr. Doug Bolton, will provide us with new ways to understand children's meltdowns and provide us with strategies for supporting them in their hardest moments. (RSVP form)
