Fruitvale ISD Students and Families,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! We are excited about the education we will be providing to your child again 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 11th in the High School from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. We will also be hosting a Meet the Teacher night on August 18th 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).
It is exciting to help each of your children receive the best, most current education. I am very thankful for the wonderful education I was provided and that my children are being provided at Fruitvale ISD.
This past year we started a visioning process with the community and staff and developed a motto, “Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow.” I truly believe we are developing tomorrow’s leaders today at Fruitvale ISD. 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 efforts. Research is clear that parent involvement is the single most important factor in a child’s academic success. So, we want to work with you and your child to be successful each day.
Thank you for entrusting your most valued possession, your children, to our district. We appreciate you, and we love your kids!
