School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2020–2021)
John C. Fremont Elementary School is tucked into a quiet neighborhood in the Belmont Heights region of Long Beach. The school, built in 1935, is steeped in history and tradition and reflects the warm feeling of a small community of teachers, parents, students, administrators, support staff, community volunteers and business partners working together. In 1997, Fremont was selected as a California Distinguished School. A highly professional staff impacts the educational program at the school.
The mission of Fremont staff and parents is to implement educational practices that support student achievement. The principal, staff members, parents and students perceive school as a place to learn. High standards and expectations for student behavior and achievement are clearly communicated. Students participate in rich curriculum built on a base of oral language, reading, writing and math skills. Fremont fosters respect and support among students, staff and parents. A safe orderly environment is maintained so that children can learn the attributes of good character which are modeled and honored at Fremont.
A source of great pride for Fremont are our computer lab, science lab and Chrome Books. Each K-5 classroom visits the computer lab and science lab each week. The Fremont PTA helps fund two computer lab techs and maintains supplies for the science lab. Students from kindergarten through fifth grade participate in weekly computer lessons that not only support their grade level curriculum - but include ST Math, computer coding skills, along with using Ozobots. Each classroom has a Chrome book cart with 30 to 35 Chrome books in each cart. Students have access to search the web, create and publish their own stories, research information for classroom activities, and most recently are able to complete and submit assignments through our student management system, Canvas. No year is complete without students visiting the Natural History Museum, the zoo, or a cybertrip to some of the California Missions and Native American sites via the internet. Students spend class time in the science lab where they are involved in a myriad of scientific topics that focus on earth, physical and biological sciences. Students participate in a variety of science experiments and activities.
Fremont has an extremely active PTA. Our hardworking PTA members volunteer and help student learning by regularly donating their time to assist students. Parents are an integral part of the many happenings that occur daily such as field trips, Art Explorers Program, quality assemblies, Author’s Day, book fairs, spring carnival, fall and spring socials,Talent Show, Home Reading Club, the “Falcon Flyer” monthly newsletter, and a Fremont Elementary School web page under the leadership of the PTA. The Fremont PTA has raised thousands of dollars to provide playground improvements and to update computers and technology. This year, in an effort to make sure that Fremont teachers will be able to continue to provide rigorous instruction using the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), The Fremont PTA, in collaboration with the California Science Center, is providing on-site training. Business partners support Fremont in many ways, especially supporting the Fremont Jog-A-Thon, and Fremont Carnival. Fremont’s parents are passionate in their efforts to provide classroom assistance. Many parents express the feeling that Fremont is an extension of their family.
Fremont students have the opportunity to participate in a number of programs such as: Drama, Spanish, Robotics, Art, Writing, Skatedogs. Also students in grades 3 through 5 have the opportunity to participate in a very active Student Council - who sponsors 2 Kindness Challenge Weeks; Canned Food Drives, and Monthly School-wide activities such as: Lunch with Loved Ones; Twin Day, College Day, Crazy Hair Day, and favorite Author Day.
