The Glendale Unified School District embraces character-building and ethical behavior as a way of life. At Fremont, we incorporate the Word of the Month into our monthly Spirit Assemblies. Also honored at the assembly is the Citizen of the Month student, selected from each class in grades 1 through 6 by the teacher based on the student’s demonstration of that trait. Through programs and activities, students are encouraged to exhibit good character and ethical choices. Additionally, all 6th graders are required to fulfill 10 hours of community service prior to promotion.
