The mission of Fremont Council PTA is to promote the welfare of all children and youth in the Fremont Unified School District by supporting our members in developing skills in advocacy, leadership and communication. Fremont Council PTA supports each of our PTA/PTSA units through timely communication, training, leadership, and guidance. We assist units by disseminating information, conducting district-wide meetings, providing PTA resources and being a platform for sharing ideas and programs between units. Fremont Council PTA serves our community through education, collaboration, resource services, and community wide programs.
