As we come to the end of the school year and prepare for a well-deserved summer break, I would like to sincerely thank each and every one of you for your support. Without the hard work of our students and staff, combined with the generosity and dedication of our parents, businesses, organizations, and the entire Fremont community, we would not be the successful school district we are today. I am so proud to be part of a district that is admired and respected – not just here in the bay area, but throughout the state of California and nation-wide as our students continue to earn awards and scholarships at both the state and national level.
As we enter the summer months, I remind families to budget some time to review and reinforce what your child has learned during the school year. Studies show that retention can decline significantly over summer vacation – especially with younger students. With changing standards and a more rigorous curriculum, it’s crucial that students return to school in the fall ready for new material and avoid spending valuable class time reviewing concepts.
That said, play, rest, and idle relaxation are also critical to our young people’s well-being and development. We encourage you to make time for your family and friends. Spend time outdoors, visit unfamiliar places, and try new things. We only get one childhood and it should be treated as a gift.
It has been another outstanding school year and I thank you all for choosing the Fremont Unified School District and for your continued support of our students, teachers and staff. I wish you a fun and safe summer, and look forward to welcoming you back on August 29th.
