Fruitvale ISD Students and Families,
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! We are excited about the education we will be providing to your child this year. Our staff has worked all summer to get ready for the upcoming year, and they are well prepared to meet the needs of students and families.
We will be offering a Bobcat Supply Night on August 13th in the High School from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. We will also be hosting a Meet the Teacher night on August 20th at 5:30 p.m. starting in the cafetorium with hot dogs and drinks. You may drop off school supplies in classrooms and meet your child's teacher(s).
I know many of you very well, having attended Fruitvale ISD, and having been a staff member for 19 years. I am very excited to help each of your children to receive the best, most current education. I am very thankful for the wonderful education I was provided at Fruitvale ISD and I want to serve the district to the best of my abilities. I would love to hear your ideas on district improvements. I think it truly takes the entire community working together toward a common goal to achieve success for our students. I can't wait to see each one of you supporting your children with their educational effort.
Thank you for entrusting your most valued possession, your children, to our district. We appreciate each of you and we love your kids!
