Fremont Elementary District 79 teachers are busy engaging students in creative technology, art projects, and science experiments, thanks to more than $23,000 in grants provided by the Fremont Education Foundation.
Much of the grants come from the foundation's largest fundraiser, a spring golf outing. This year's event is scheduled for Monday, May 7, at the Ivanhoe Country Club, 28846 N. Thorngate Drive, Mundelein.
