Fremont Friends

Just thought I would share this. I can't say enough good things about our school. It's just totally AWESOME some of the cool things they do.
This is a Huge one. Really tugs at my heart.

I know that a lot of kids get free or reduced lunches at school. I mean if you really grocery shop like I do for 3 adults and 4 kids Wow. It takes a lot. I think its great that so many can benefit from it. We get free lunches just because we have so many in our family. Ridge is really the only one that eats at school. My girls like to take there own.

This is the whole purpose of this post is they have a program called " Fremont Friends". This program sends food home with the children for the weekend. This year they have a larger group but with the way things are it doesn't surprise me. It just is so sweet that they do this send a backpack home filled with food and love. Every Friday just before school is out they meet and get there stuff for the weekend.

Another thing a lot of the teachers do is when a student that they know won't get to use there free pizza coupon or whatever like Mc Donalds at home. They will go and get there pizza at lunchtime for those that have earned it so they don't lose out. I think this is amazing not only that they help out but that they show love to one another. At holiday times they also make sure these students have food and presents. I'm so very proud of this.
