Founding & Mission

Mission Statement

A nonprofit organization of dedicated parents, teachers, and administrators working to promote children’s educational success and well-being through strong parent, family, and community involvement.

Fremont PTA

John C. Fremont Elementary School is the hidden gem of Belmont Heights. It is one of the smallest (500 students) schools in the award winning Long Beach Unified School District. Our students test scores are consistently amongst the highest in the district. Our faculty and staff maintain a warm and positive environment. But it is not all about test scores!


Our students are receiving a well-rounded enriched education. Despite budget cuts, because of our incredible fundraising and volunteer effort, Fremont is still able to offer PE, Art, Music, Drama, after school enrichment, field trips, a hands on Science Lab and a Technology Lab.


These wonderful programs are made possible because of the partnership between the Long Beach Unified School District, the Fremont PTA, Faculty, Staff and the community. Approximately $120,000 a year is raised privately to help fund these programs. Check out the Programs that the PTA sponsors


The Fremont PTA is one of the most dynamic nonprofit organizations in the City of Long Beach. We are very proud of our little school and all of the volunteers that contribute to make it great.

What is the PTA?


  • The PTA is the oldest and largest volunteer association working on children and youth issues. In California alone, we have approximately 1 million PTA members.

  • The PTA represents every child in California schools. We work for every child, with one voice.

  • The PTA is a non-partisan, non-sectarian, and non-commercial association that promotes the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community and place of worship.

  • The PTA encourages communication and cooperation between parent and school to ensure that children and youth receive the best possible physical, mental, social and spiritual education.

  • The PTA develops educational programs for parents, teachers, students and the general public.

  • The PTA fosters leadership skills in both adults and students. PTA volunteers are leaders and advocates in their schools and communities.

What does the PTA support at Fremont?


We have a lot to be proud of as a PTA! Through the work of many hands and much effort, we sponsor many programs and events that benefit all Fremont students, classrooms, staff, and families – our community. Here are our programs.

What’s in it for you?


  • The opportunity to participate in voting on all Fremont PTA matters.

  • The opportunity to chair a PTA program.

  • The option to show your support for the PTA by joining without having to attend any meetings or volunteering for anything – Membership does not require Participation!

  • The opportunity to show your support for the largest and oldest advocate for children and education. Sheer numbers in our organization as a whole will make the PTA stronger when they are advocating education budgets at the local, state and national level.

  • Check out the discounts that you can get as a PTA member on the a National PTA web site. and National Member Offers

Where do your PTA Membership dues go?


Although the Fremont PTA does have fundraisers, Membership is not one of them. $5.05 of each membership goes to National, State, district and council PTA. We are asking you to be members to show your support for the PTA at all levels. The more members we have as an organization at the national, state and local levels will make the organization as a whole stronger and put them in a stronger position to lobby for the benefit of our children.
