Thank you to all of you who took time to email me on Wednesday. Your support means the world to me and the entire staff.
We showed the following video to all of our students. I applaud Burger King for taking a stand on bullying. I am left with a very sick feeling though: if only a few adults stood up to bullying, how do we expect children to do so? That question has been on my mind for two weeks. The answer is education but if our society doesn't want to deal with the situation as adults, I am concerned we are expecting our children to do as we say and not as we do.
The talent show is this tonight from 7:00-9:00. Admission is $5.00.
Talk Early, Talk Often was last night and I thought it was very good. If the FACF wants to bring it back next year, we will certainly take advantage of it.
From the Lion’s Club:
The Fremont Lions Club collects used eyeglasses, which are taken to Ferris State University's College of Optometry. The college students clean, sort, and categorize the glasses, which are then taken on eyeglass mission trips to foreign countries. The optometry students participate in the mission trips as preparation for careers in the eyecare industry. Fremont Public Schools is partnering with the Fremont Lions Club by having used eyeglass collection boxes at Daisy Brook Elementary, Fremont Middle, and Fremont High School. People around the world will benefit from the used eyeglasses that you donate!
It's A Great Day To Be A Packer!
