Dear Parents and Guardians,
Ready, get set, Gomes! We are welcoming the holiday season. There is always something very special about this time of the year. There is a spirit in the air. Regardless of one’s religious affiliation and regardless of the commercialism in our streets and stores, a spirit of joy and sharing always seems to prevail during the holiday season. The gifts we give provide momentary pleasures that fade over time and are insignificant compared to the time and love we give each and every day throughout the year.
In that same spirit, I would like to repeat some advice from a child psychologist, Dr. Charles Schaefer, after asking this question of 500 parents who had successfully reared children: “Based upon your own personal experience, what is the best advice you could give new parents about raising children?” The most frequent parental advice offered was:
1. Love abundantly
2. Discripline constructively
3. Be clear, consistent and authoritative
4. Punish in private
5. Be flexible, reasonable, and understanding.
6. Discourage continued dependency
7. Spend time together
8. Develop mutual respect
9. Really listen
10. Tend to personal and marital needs
- Mr. Whipple

Effective July 1, 2013, the Office of Pupil Services will be officially known as the Office of Student Support Services (SSS). The SSS will include the Language Assessment Center (LAC) and School Nurses, as well as the new Centralized Enrollment Center (CEC). Due to these changes, the enrollment process for new Transitional Kindergarten (TK) – 6th grade students will be conducted in the new Centralized Enrollment Center effective July 8, 2013. Therefore, elementary school enrollment will end on Friday, June 14, 2013 and elementary schools will no longer enroll new students for the 2013/14 school. For further information, please call (510) 657-2350 after June 17, 2013 and ask for the Centralized Enrollment Center.
These changes address the requirement for the child passenger restraint system in motor vehicles in California. This change now requires that “….a driver shall not transport on a highway in a motor vehicle, as defined in paragraph (1) of subdivision (3) of section 27315, a child or ward who is under eight years of age, meeting applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards.without properly securing that child in a rear seat in an appropriate child passenger restraint system

A couple of things to keep in mind:
1. Come as early as you can as those travelling on Highway 17 and other approaching highways will encounter heavy traffic.
2. Carpool as much as possible.
3. Approach the site from the back - Park on Delaware Avenue or Natural Bridge Drive. Parking is free and only a short walk to the site. Do NOT park on Swanton. There is paid parking on the front entrance on W. Cliff.
4. Alcohol is prohibited at the beach site.
The family appreciates your love and support and looks forward to celebrating Greg with you.
On May 7, 2014, the Fremont Board of Education unanimously voted to adopt new math programs for grades kindergarten through eight.
