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.
In 2014-15, Fruitvale ISD will be participating in a new federal program called Community Eligibility. What this means to Fruitvale ISD students and parents -- All students will receive a free breakfast and a free lunch every day during the school year. Parents will no longer be required to fill out a lunch application.

9/15/14 The Bobcats fell to a tough Chico team last Saturday night. Even though we had a few key players out, the boys played their hearts out against a much more experienced team. I was extremely proud of the effort, and I know that we will continue to improve. The Bobcats return to action Friday at Dallas A+ Academy. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
9/16/14 The 8th grade volleyball team won their match vs Cumby last night.
9/10/14 The 7th and 8th grade volleyball teams won their matches against Boles on Monday night.
9/15/14 Thanks for all who came out to support the Lady Cat volleyball team last night! For those of you who weren't able to make it, you missed a great game! The Lady Cats posted a convincing win over Boles last night in a three set sweep, 25-19, 25-10, 25-13. The defensive specialists Audrey Robinson and Kennedy Kvapil came to play, accounting for twenty-one passes to target in the first set which resulted in 15 kills! Serving standouts were Kvapil with eleven points, Bryli Stanley with ten points and Felisha Hickman with nine points. Karen Crane led the way offensively with 12 kills while Brinkly Earl added eight. Sarah Sheppard and Makayla David shone at the net with a combined four blocks and seven kills. Emma Shaw and Emily Driskills distributed eleven and six assists, respectively.
Friday will be a key contest in the district race when Fruitvale travels to Cumby for a 4:30 match.
Once again, thanks for your support!
9/15/14 The junior varsity Lady Cats won their match in two sets. Felisha Hickman and Harlie Moore led the team in serving. Adison Allen, Amy Anderson, Meranda Littlejohn, Halle Smith, and Masyn Goforth were forces on the front row. Abby Williams, Moore and Haiden Lane came through defensively. Hickman and Emily Williams did a great job setting the ball for the Lady Cats.
