Principal's Message


Hello to Everyone,

     It has been a very eventful month for me to say the least. I have really enjoyed the challenge and opportunity to be the new principal here at Parkmont. There is so much to learn and I look forward to a wonderful year with all of the students, parents, and staff. It was confirmed to me that I made the right choice in coming to Parkmont when I saw all of your children arrive on the first day and had the opportunity to meet them and many of you. What a great learning community we have here. The staff is outstanding and truly work hard to provide the best learning opportunities for your children. The students are amazing--they put in their best effort to learn and are very friendly and well-mannered. All of you are involved and engaged in the education of your children. What's not to like?

     Our new Assistant Principal, Johanna Cho, has hit the ground running and is already helping me in so many ways to take care of the running of our school.  Since Parkmont is such a large school, Johanna has really been a very important addition to our staff and we make a great administrative team.

     We both look forward to meeting as many of you as possible during our Back to School Night on Tuesday, September 16th.

      Please feel free to call or email either one of us if you have any concerns or questions.

Hello from New Assistant Principal

Johanna Cho


Dear Parkmont Community,

     My name is Johanna Cho, and I am extremely excited and honored to introduce myself as the new Assistant Principal of Parkmont Elementary School.  I have worked in the Fremont Unified School District for the past 15 years, teaching grades K-3 as well as 6th grade at both Durham Elementary and Warwick Elementary Schools.  I have worked as an instructional coach at our Elementary Summer Academy and taken on several leadership positions at both school sites.  I received my undergraduate and Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Cal State East Bay.

     I believe that as a school we play a fundamental role in positioning our students for future success.   I will continue to uphold the high standards in place for academic success, social responsibility and overall well-being of our students.

     I will work hard to support the needs of our students, staff, parents, and Mr. Petersen.  Please know that my door is always open so please feel free to stop in to see me, email or call me.   I look forward to getting to know each of you and am overjoyed to be a part of such a warm and welcoming team.  I am positive this will be a wonderful school year!

Johanna Cho

Assistant Principal
