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.

Calculator 1st place team
12/16/14 The varsity boys basketball team improved their record to 8-2 with a 63-59 win last night against Overton. In what can only be described as an intense game. Chaz Grimes led the way with 24 points. Eric Lane had 13 points. Gage Sulc had 7 points. Gavino Rongel and Geramey Mayne had 6 points each. Kayle Lewis had 5 points and Joxson Lane had 2. The Bobcats will get a much deserved break until they travel to the Rosebud-Lott tournament Dec. 2-30.
12/16/14 The team traveled to the Alba-Golden tournament Thursday & lost the opener 45-14 to the host team. Breylan Tarrant lead all scorers with 5 points. Matthew Martin had 4 & Taylor Brow scored 3. Jonathan Sheppard rounded out the scoring with a 4th period field goal.
In the second game, Saltillo bested the Bobcats 40-20. Brown scored 6, Sheppard, Martin & Paul Garner all had 4 points. Tarrant & Davin Brightmon both hit a 1st-half free throw.
In Saturday's final contest, Fruitvale recovered from a 1-point 1st period to rally 39-24 after the Winona JVs fouled out enough players to limit their on-court participants to 4 players. FHS turned it into a 39-24 victory. Sheppard was the leading rebounder & added 16 points. Tarrant contributed 10 & Garner, Brown, Martin, & Brightmon had 5, 4, 3, & 2, respectively.
The 'Cats returned home Monday nite to take a 54-29 loss to Overton, but won the 2nd half with some aggressive man defense. Sheppard again led the scoring with 10 points. Tarrant & Garner each had 8 and Martin & Brown managed a field goal in the opening & final periods.
FHS JV boys return to action in January & hold a 2-8 record thus far.
JH Bobcat Basketball
12/16/14 Last night, the boys lost another tough game against Cumby 25-19. The Bobcats played some good defense early, but could not throw the ball in the ocean. We got several good looks at the basket, but there seemed to be a lid on it. As we fell behind, we struggled to run our offense and just couldn't make the plays when we needed to. Gavin Sulc led the team with 11 pts, followed by Landon Williams with 4 pts, and Albert Anderson and Dalton Copeland with 2 pts each.
Lady Cat Basketball
12/17/14 The varsity girls basketball team came in second at the tournament last weekend. They also beat Overton this past Monday night 52-41.
12/3/14 The junior varsity girls basketball team ALMOST beat Commerce last night. After falling behind by as much as ten points in the first half, the Lady Cats chiseled at the lead and eased ahead in the fourth quarter for one possession. Time just ran out, but I was extremely proud of their comeback efforts.
JH Lady Cat Basketball
12/10/14 The jr. high girls beat Cumby last night 21-7. Very proud of the girls we played great defense to hold a team to 7pts and we are seeing the floor and making better passes. We are improving all the time and that is what it is all about.
