And we’re back! It is hard to believe, but we began our second year of school here at BASIS Independent Fremont just under a month ago on Wednesday, August 16, 2017. This year, we welcomed over 230 students, ranging in age from Transitional Kindergarten through Grade 6, into our school. It has been a busy and exciting few weeks for our Bumblebees. In addition to acclimating to a new school year (with new cubbies and lockers and teachers and supplies!), our students have been diving deep into new content. Our kindergarteners are learning about different food groups and how to develop healthy eating habits, our first graders are beginning a multi-week interdisciplinary unit on Ancient Egypt, our fourth graders are asking deep questions about culture and community, and our sixth graders are enjoying their first few weeks as full-fledged middle schoolers!
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! Fremont is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
