FUSS activities to benefit Fremont schools
By Miriam G. Mazliach
Over the past months, FUSS (Fremont United Student Store) has been extremely busy creating events and projects, to benefit the school district. FUSS is a nonprofit organization established for the sole purpose of raising money for Fremont Unified School District (FUSD).
Several months ago, the organization presented a talent show showcasing local students and sold DVD copies of the performance as well as a musical CD and greeting cards created by other talented Fremont students. During this time of budgetary uncertainty, FUSS is trying to fill the gaps.
Three activities planned by FUSS provide opportunities for community support:
FUSS Fashion Show:
ÒEducation in FashionÓ shows will be held on March 2: a matinee from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. and an evening show from 6 p.m. Ð 8 p.m. Local students will be featured as models and performers. Proceeds from the shows benefit Art and Drama programs at FUSD high schools.
