What We Fund

Principal Bryan Emmert asks you to support the Foundation.
Fremont Art Teacher, Catherine Zweig, introduces several art students. The Foundation funded a grant for take-home art kits.
Robotics has been a huge part of my high school experience. I’ve learned a lot of technical skills, as well as how to work in a team and communicate well with others.
