Congratulations to Leon W., Daniel F., and Jocelyn S. on your accomplishments in the 2017 National Merit Program! These three students, part of our 63 student senior class, are in the top 4% of the nation.

In October 2015, students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—a test which serves as an initial screening of approximately 1.6 million juniors each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.

Commended - Jocelyn S.

Of more than 1.6 million students who sat for the PSAT test in October, only 34,000 received the honor of being named National Merit Commended. 

Semi-Finalist - Daniel F.

Of more than 1.6 million students who sat for the PSAT test in October, only 16,000 received the honor of being named National Merit Semi-Finalist. 

Finalist - Leon W.

Of more than 1.6 million students who sat for the PSAT test in October, only 15,000 received the honor of being named National Merit Finalist. 

Daniel has been with FCS since 2015, while Jocelyn and Leon both qualify as 13 year students. Jocelyn started in 2004, and Leon has been with Fremont Christian School since 2002. Congratulations again to our Class of 2017 Seniors and all their accomplishments! 

There’s Something About Childhood Friends You Just Can’t Replace

Natalie H. (kindergarten) and Naiyah R. (transitional kindergarten) are good friends and they both come to school early during morning extended care. On March 3, Natalie came in crying because she missed her mom, who had gone with one of the junior high classes on a week-long field trip.

When Naiyah saw Natalie crying, she immediately hugged her and began comforting her. Naiyah took out a pack of seaweed, so we asked if she would like to share something with Natalie. She said that Natalie doesn’t like seaweed, but she then took out all her snacks from her backpack and offered them to Natalie. Natalie chose gold fish.

It's nice seeing them supporting each other. Naiyah is generous, caring, and loving, which exactly what Natalie needed that morning. It’s great to see our kids fully embracing Luke 6:31: “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.”
