Fun Times on the Ice

Fun Times on the Ice

Students from Lutz Elementary School visited the Fremont Rec Center to introduce students to ice skating and the basics of floor hockey. We had students of all ice skating ability levels. Some students were able to use the assistance of the ice skating walkers, buckets, or the wall to help them with their balance. Other students came prepared with their own skates, hockey helmets, and hockey gloves. The students had a great time on the ice! After their ice time was over, students were then sent to the gymnasium to learn about floor hockey basics such as passing, stickhandling, and shooting on the goal. This taught them teamwork, sportsmanship, and a healthy physical activity that they can enjoy for their lifetime.

An Update From Fremont City Schools Superintendent Mr. Jon Detwiler

It is an exciting time to be a part of Fremont City Schools. As I write this article, we have just had our Visioning Meeting for the new facilities. We had about 100 people attend through the snow to be a part of the process.

It was an intense day. We began with sharing the Successes and Challenges of our current facilities. Those responses were very interesting, though not unpredictable. We then watched a video about how we need to meet the educational demands of the future. Chris Smith, architect from TDA, then shared many photos and stories of new schools from around the State. Seeing these photos was, for me, the most exhilarating part of the day.

After lunch, we spent a lot of time writing down our desires for our new spaces by category: athletics, special education, music, art, etc. We finished the day with actual overhead pictures of the sites and the corresponding cutouts of the “rooms” that will make up the schools. We had gyms, classrooms, cafeterias, parking lots and other spaces cutout of paper and were asked to lay out possible spatial concepts of the buildings. I think Mr. Zeller, Ross Principal, summed it up best at the end by saying that this is why he is an educator and not an architect. I believe it showed the many decisions that will have to be made as we go forward and the level of compromise that will be necessary during this process.

My closing comments for the day included the reminder that, along with the excitement, we have to recognize the huge amount of change that will be coming to our world. Change is never easy, and we have a LOT of change in our future.

 I also mentioned that we must do our best to design buildings and have no regrets. We have to get this right!

 We will make it through and share a fabulous ride that we can be proud of for our entire lives, knowing we have been a part of the future.

Thank you for allowing me to lead.  Jon
