What’s Up, Fremont High School?

Fremont FFA (Future Farmers of America)

This month, Fremont FFA did their annual Adopt a Highway Clean up. We clean 4700 W from the sign up near 900 South to the end of 4700 W. here by Fremont. We do this every year in preparation for Homecoming and again in the spring. We had 28 members participate last night. 

Last week we had several students submit crops they had grown to be entered in the Utah State Fair. We are excited about how well they did. If you have these kids in class, please take a second and congratulate them. These projects show a summer of hard work growing crops by these kids. Mr. Ellertson also was asked to serve as one of the State Fair Agricultural Mechanics Judges. Congratulations to all of them, and enjoy the pictures.

Fremont Cares!

Fremont Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) is building 50 weekend food packages for underprivileged children at Pioneer Elementary.  This is a weekly endeavor, so it takes a lot of commitment from our HOSA officers and members.

Hope Squad

We are excited to get our Hope Squad up and running this year! The purpose of the squad is to:

  • Enhance the health and safety measures already in place at a school
  • Educate students on how to recognize warning signs of suicide
  • Educate students how to respectfully reports potential suicide behavior
  • Train students how to interact with, watch, and support fellow students/friends who may be struggling
  • Implement evidence-based strategies through HOPE Squad training programs
  • Reduce suicide attempts

“As a teacher here at Fremont High School I'm thankful for a program like HOPE SQUAD that empowers students to make a difference not only in their lives but those that are around them.  In my experience in working with teenagers at a lock down facility, I've seen individuals at their lowest point in their lives.  However, with support and love from people all around us, lives can be changed in a positive way just because somebody cared.  If people would remind themselves how they would like to be treated this world would definitely be a better place.” – Chris Hancock, teacher advisor

Check out some of the chalk art to celebrate suicide awareness day. Students walked over this as they entered our school:

National History Day / Utah History Day:

Coming to Fremont this year will be the opportunity to think about, plan, and research an historical event or person. 

The National History Day theme is: Conflict and Compromise in History

The program gives students an opportunity to learn “how to conduct real historical research and then create a final project that showcases their work.  Students present their projects in a series of contests beginning at the school or district level and advancing through regional and state competitions. Utah’s top entries qualify to compete at the National History Day competition in Washington, D.C., each June.”*

Hello Assembly Recognition

This year at the Hello Assembly the Fire Chief honored one of our students for demonstrating heroism. From the Deseret News:

PLAIN CITY, Weber County — A Plain City teen is being credited with saving his father's life after the man collapsed while exercising on the Fremont High School track earlier this month.

Jeff Boothe, 40, said he almost set out to do sprints by himself, but at the last minute asked his 17-year-old son Colby to video him running down the track so that he could check his form. That is what he believes really made the difference. Seconds after Colby stopped recording is when Jeff Boothe collapsed.

“I got to the end of this straightaway and felt funny and out of breath, and I knew my heart had gone into a weird rhythm,” Jeff Boothe said.

He was born with a heart defect, but this was unusual.

“I was losing strength really quick, so I just leaned over for a second," he said. "I could feel myself just losing strength, so I kneeled down on the track and called out to him and blacked out.”

The teen, who was checking the video on his phone, heard his dad call out his name.

“At first, I just thought he was just out of breath and maybe needs help to the bleachers, and I ran over and he wasn’t responsive,” he said.

Colby then went into panic mode.

“I booked it back to the phone and called 911 and ran back and started CPR; well the best CPR I could,” the 17-year-old said.

Character Counts at Fremont!

Each week, student names are drawn from our box of “Character Counts” nominations from teachers. Here are some of our winners this week! Thanks to our wonderful students for making Fremont a great place to be! Also, a shoutout to our amazing secretary, Christy Koford, for making this happen every week.

Pack TV

Our wonderful teacher, Fred Smith, helps students run announcements twice a week on a live school feed that goes to all classrooms. They make it very professional, bringing in news from our school, community, and world issues. Thanks for your hard work!
