Dear Parkmont Families,

Welcome to a new school year!

I am excited to return to Parkmont as your new principal! The opportunity to serve last year as your Assistant Principal has prepared me greatly for this school year! I look forward to building upon the relationships I've made with our teachers, students and families here at Parkmont.

Our talented teaching staff are greeting the new school year with great enthusiasm! They have been busily preparing their classrooms to warmly welcome our students. Our teachers are carefully planning their lessons to meet the Common Core State Standards. In addition, our staff has been participating in Professional Development opportunities focusing on the best practices to support student learning. We are lucky to have most of our teachers returning to Parkmont this year; and we welcome some new faces to Parkmont. Welcome Ms. Barrientez, 6th grade; Ms. Waziri, 5th grade; Mr. Kelly, Kindergarten; Ms. Laird, 2nd grade and Mrs. Davis, Assistant Principal.

We look forward to meeting you on Back to School Night, September 8th beginning at 6:00 p.m. for grades TK-3rd and 7:00 p.m. for 4th-6th grades. This is an evening to hear more about what your students will be learning this year. Keep in mind this is not a time to conference but more of an informational night. Teachers are always willing to meet at a mutually agreed upon time.

Opportunities abound for us all this year as we create a learning community where teachers, students and parents work as partners to provide a 21st century education to empower our students.

Sincerely,

Ms. Johanna Cho, Principal

Dear Parkmont Community,

Hi! My name is Stacy Davis, and I am very excited to introduce myself as the new Assistant Principal of Parkmont Elementary School. I have worked in the field of education for the past 15 years. I have spent a majority of those years teaching special education as well as holding various administrative roles. Most recently, I was the summer school principal at Glenmoor Elementary school. Prior to that, I was the Special Education Department Chair and Counseling Enriched teacher at Mission San Jose High School. I received my undergraduate degree from Penn State University. I received my Master’s Degree in Education as well as my teaching credential from Sacramento State University.

I believe that we are all lifelong learners. I am committed to supporting and guiding our Parkmont students towards academic success by being an active listener and by being actively involved in their day to day learning. Students learn best when they feel safe, supported and understood. I will work diligently with our students, staff and Ms. Cho on focusing within those areas.

I am always happy to speak with you about anything that you feel is important and I am always available via email at sdavis@fremont.k12.ca.us.

I am looking forward to a positive, productive 2015-2016 school year and I am very excited to get to know all of you, our families and partners, at this wonderful school.

Stacy Davis

Assistant Principal

4. If you choose to park across the street, please do NOT have your child cross the street, take a few extra minutes to walk to the cross walk.

Measles

Hello Parkmont Families
With the Alameda County Public Health Department’s (ACPHD) recent report of five confirmed cases of measles within the county so far in 2015, the Fremont Unified School District (FUSD) is providing families with information regarding the illness.
 
FUSD reminds families there are currently no known cases of measles within the District. The ACPHD is investigating and will notify the District immediately with any reports of confirmed cases or suspected exposures.
 
Measles, also called rubeola, is a highly-contagious illness caused by a virus that causes fever, cough, runny nose and watery eyes, as well as a rash. More serious cases of measles can cause diarrhea, middle ear infection, pneumonia, or encephalitis (brain infection). Measles is spread person-to-person when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or shares food/drink. If your child demonstrates any of the above symptoms, please do not send child to school and contact your physician immediately.
 
Immunization is the best protection against measles. There are typically two doses given: one at 12-15 months, and a second time as soon as 28 days later. Many children receive their second dose before kindergarten. FUSD, as well as all California public schools, requires both doses be administered prior to enrollment.
 
Please contact FUSD Student Support Services at 510-659-2534 with questions or for more information.
