Harvey Green Calendar

Principal's Message

Harvey Green Families,

It is already May and the end of the year is approaching quickly. Thank you to all of the families who came to Open House. We had a wonderful turn out with 89% of families attending! I also would like to thank the community for proving lots of yummy food, special notes, flowers, and so much more for our staff during Staff Appreciation Week. I know you agree with me when I say, we have the best staff in FUSD.

In this last month of school there is a lot going on. We have our talent show, Bike to School Day, Multicultural Week, our final PTA meeting, 5th Grade Science Camp, 5th Grade Promotion, field day and so much more! Please be sure to check the calendar below for important upcoming dates. Also, be sure to read all communication from classroom teachers and the school office.

I look forward to celebrating the end of the year with the students and our community.

As always, please feel free to call the office or reach out to us by email if we can assist your family in any way.


Ms. Johnson

Counselor Corner

Hello Harvey Green Families,

In just a few weeks, your students will be onto the next grade! Where did the time go?! Reflecting back on this year, I've had the great opportunity to be in every classroom and teach lessons every other week. We are finishing off the last month of the year learning about Mental Health Awareness and reviewing topics we've learned this year.

Are you thinking about summer activities for your child? Check out the summer offerings by the City of Fremont! They are also offering partial scholarships/discounts for swim lessons, select camps, and Aqua Adventure Waterpark tickets. First come, first serve so be sure to apply soon!

If you have any questions or would like to discuss a concern, please email me at dng@fusdk12.net or call (510) 656-6438 ext. 41255.

Thank you,

Mrs. Ng

Bike to School Day

It’s time to dust off your bike, pump up the tires, and check the brakes. Bike to School Day on May 11 is just around the corner! Join your friends, or make new ones, reach out to your neighbors, form a bike train—hop on and pedal. Each year more and more schools join the celebration and fun of using pedal power to get to and from school. Bike commuting is good for our health, the community and the planet. Be part of the solution! With thousands of riders pedaling on Bike to School and Work Day, it’s one of the best days to try out cycling with your family—there’s safety in numbers. Be a “roll” model and wear your helmet; it’s the law!

Covid Test Kits and Covid Testing

If your family needs any at home Covid tests, please stop by the front office. We have a lot on hand and we would like to get them to your family.

Library Books

Please be sure to return all library books by Thursday, May 25th. This will give Mr. Jun time to check in all books and begin to prepare for the fall.

During the summer, please visit the Fremont Main Library and the Irvington Library to borrow books.

End of the Year Medication Pick Up

If your student has required medication or health services at school this year, all medication and medical supplies must be picked up from the school office on the last day of school, June 2nd! Medications must be picked up by a parent or guardian.

Lost and Found

Check lost and found for any items your child may have lost. As the weather is getting warmer students often take off their jackets and leave them outside. Writing your child's name on the tag, helps us to return their lost items. Items will be donated on the last day of school.

Yearbooks on Sale

If you would like to preorder a yearbook, payment can be dropped off to the school office. Cost is $25. Please make checks payable to FUSD - Green. There is a limited supply.

New TK and K Enrollment

Is your child almost TK/Kindergarten age? 2023-2024 enrollment begins on December 23rd. If your child is born between 09/02/18 to 4/02/19, they are eligible for TK! If they are born between 09/02/17 to 09/01/18 they are eligible for Kindergarten. Please check here for information on how to sign up your child for TK or Kindergarten.

Free Breakfast and Lunch Daily

ALL Green students will have access to free meals here at school. Students will be asked every morning if they are going to get a school lunch so we can order the correct amount

of food. Please communicate with your child if you would like them to get a school meal and if they are choosing the meat or vegetarian option.

TK/K students are welcome to come through the lunch line and grab a lunch but there is no lunch supervision for TK/K students they will need to eat with a parent/guardian off campus.

Breakfast will be served daily in the MUR for any interested students at 8:05am. Parents/guardians are not allowed in the MUR. Students will be supervised while they eat and will be either released to recess when finished or if they are TK/K they will be walked to class.

For menus and more information please use this link.

Comprehensive Health, Puberty, and Sexuality Education (CHPSE)- 4th & 5th Grade

The Fremont Unified School District Board of Education and our school faculty believe it is important for students to assume responsibility for their own health and well-being. They benefit from instruction that fosters the development of positive health behaviors and the prevention of negative unhealthy behaviors. FUSD’s Comprehensive Health, Puberty, and Sexuality Education (CHPSE) curriculum focuses on information that is essential for students’ well-being. This course of study conforms strictly to the guidelines provided by the California State Education Code 51933 and the California Healthy Youth Act.

Lesson Dates:

4th Grade: May 16th- May 19th

5th Grade: March 27th- April 4th

State law allows you to remove your student from part or all of the Comprehensive Health, Puberty, and Sexuality lessons. Students opting out of lessons will be provided an alternate curriculum under the supervision of a credentialed teacher. If you do not want your student to participate in all or part of the Comprehensive Health, Puberty, and Sexuality education program, you must provide, in writing (email or on paper), a note to your student’s teacher.

Links to the curriculum, opt-out information, and parent resources, can be found at: https://www.fremont.k12.ca.us/HealthResources.


Per Board Policy any parent/guardian of a student enrolled in the District shall notify the District prior to or within five (5) days of any change in circumstance and/or a move which would affect their student’s residency (AR 5111.1).

Please complete and email the Change of Address Form with 2 proofs of new address residency to your current school.
