Tuesday, February 28: “Never Use The N-word”

Unfortunately, the n-word is used with a disturbing frequency in the hallways of Fremd High School. The event will consist of a variety of activities students and staff members can engage in to educate themselves and commit to "Never Use the N-Word" at FHS.

Student Services Focus of the Month for March

Each month, Student Services creates and shares different school-wide initiatives to bring awareness to different topics and issues. During the month of March the focus is self-care and contributing to a positive school culture. Student Services will be leading activities with students and staff about how to take responsibility in the school, build community, and support others. Keep an eye out for more information.

Please donate diapers to Student Services and the Media Center in a drive hosted by Asian American Heritage Club. Diapers will benefit Second Bridge, an organization that supports foster children. Sizes 3-5 are especially appreciated.
