Principal's Message

Dear Fruitvale Families,


Our school celebrated 25 years of Excellence this year! We continued with our PBIS three Be’s: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe. Students were recognized for demonstrating these positive attributes with “Bee Notes” and “Lunch with the Principal” each month. Students in grades 3-5 completed their first year as AVID scholars. We will expand AVID to include 2nd grade next year.


Parent volunteers have been a great asset this year. We truly appreciate all of their help and support. So let’s give all of our families a big “THANK YOU!” for helping our student scholars. When our parents and families work with their students, our students will achieve their goals and be successful.


Thank you all for another year of educational excellence. With all of the students, staff, and families working together, Fruitvale Elementary School will continue to be an exceptional school for all students.


Have a safe summer and we’ll see you on August 7th!


Mrs. Karen Brooks




Dear Fruitvale Family,

I cannot believe how quickly the school year went and how many wonderful learning opportunities our students had – both in the classroom and through amazing instructional field trips. I would like to thank the teachers for all their hard work in planning and imparting meaningful lessons and activities that not only bring knowledge but render students with lifelong memories. I would also like to thank our students for all their hard work and their willingness to learn and their supportive families who support learning and make sure students come to school.

Over the years, Fruitvale has been very fortunate to have outstanding parent participation in the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), School Site Council (SSC), and the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) and this year has been no different. I am proud to say that the product of their hard work has had a positive impact on the students and their learning and would like to extend my gratitude for their commitment and contribution to the success of our school.

Have a great summer and remember to be respectful, responsible, and safe!


Mr. Joseph Romero
Assistant Principal
