Fruitvale ISD is committed to working as a team to close the gaps that separate our students from achieving all they can be. This year, we are raising the expectations in every program and at every campus so that we can prepare all of our students for success beyond high school. We will be committed to doing whatever it takes to benefit students and their success.
Our efforts will be focused on improving academics and attendance. Students simply cannot reach their highest potential if they are not in class. Another focus this year will be on preparing students for life after graduation. With your help and your commitment we will make it happen. Please join the FISD’s amazing staff as we encourage every student to be their very best. Thank you for your support.
Believe, commit, inspire and leave a legacy.

JH Bobcat Basketball
2/9/15 This past weekend the JH Boys completed their season with two really tough games against Como-Pickton and North Hopkins. The Bobcats took the first one on the chin as they lost 46-19 to the eventual champions of the tournament. Payton Thompson and Preston Thompson scored 6 pts each to lead the Bobcats followed by Landon Williams with 4 pts and Gavin Sulc with 3 pts.
The Bobcats then took on North Hopkins in an extremely exciting game. North Hopkins came out strong and led nearly the entire game even taking an 8 pt lead into the 4th quarter. However, the Bobcats would not go quietly as they really picked up their intensity on both ends of the floor to tie the game up with about 30 seconds to play at 31-31. However, North Hopkins was able to get the lead back on the next trip down. with about 3 seconds to play, the Bobcats got a great look at a game winning 3 that hit the back iron and bounced out for a tough 2 pt loss. Gavin Sulc led the Bobcats with 14 pts, Landon Williams had 6 pts, Preston Thompson had 5 pts, Payton Thompson had 4 pts, and Dalton Maynard had 2 pts.
The Bobcats finished with a 6-7 record and 4th place in district. These boys came in early every day and busted their tails to get better. They are night and day different from where they started to where they ended. These guys never gave up no matter the circumstance and I couldn't be more proud of all they accomplished this season.
Lady Cat Basketball
2/11/15 The varsity girls finished the regular season last night with a convincing 59-33 win over Cumby. We finished with an overall record of 16-11 and District record of 8-2. The girls placed 2nd in District and qualified for the PLAYOFFS.
2/4/15 The junior varsity girls basketball team used long range scoring to defeat a much taller, larger Como-Pickton team. The Lady Eagles packed into the lane, so the Lady Cats combined for six three point field goals and the win.
JH Lady Cat Basketball
2/6/15 The district tournament started last night. The lady cats beat Boles 24-14. We had lost to them both times during the season. We should have won those games but we let it slip away in the last minute. We got them when it counted. The girls really played hard and now we play North Hopkins tomorrow at 10:30. Very proud of these girls they have come a long way from our first game of the season.
