Dear Teachers and Staff Members, 

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Central Office Administrators, and myself…  Happy Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week, May 4-8.

No matter your position in the district, your work with our students is invaluable on a daily basis…greeting students as they get on your bus, assisting them with their work in or out of the classroom, supporting them socially and emotionally, feeding them nutritional meals, or making certain their building is clean and healthy…everyone is a member in our village that is providing our students wtih a rich educational experience.

This year we will be having a Wednesday Early Out appreciation event on May 20th at 2:45-3:45. It will be at the new Central Office Building at 863 Sweetwater Street (the old Starrett Junior High building). We will meet in the auditorium for recognition of staff, flower drawings, and a celebration of the school year.  After the ceremony, we invite you to tour the building and see the offices, meeting rooms, and Boardroom.  We have saved money for many years (based on the 2005 Restructuring Task Force Plan) to finally make this one central place for everyone to be together, supporting you at the district level.  We are proud of the new facility and look forward to sharing it with all of you.

Again, thanks for all the work you do to support our students to attain a quality education in Fremont School District #1.

Yours in education,

Dr. Kathy Hitt
