Principal's Message

Welcome back to another exciting year!


Fruitvale Elementary school was opened 25 years ago in 1991. So this year we are celebrating 25 years of educating Hemet's children. Over the years, Fruitvale has been recognized as a California Distinguished School and a Title One High Achieving School. There will be a short celebration for the students, staff, parents and community on October 20th. More information will be posted on this website in September.


Through the district's LCAP initiatives, Fruitvale will continue to provide:  counseling; music, choir, and band; reading intervention for struggling students; PBIS school wide; and support for English learners. We are also implementing AVID for all students in third, fourth, and fifth grade to help prepare them for college.


Our parent volunteers are a valued and necessary part of the school community. If you would like more information on becoming a volunteer, please speak with our parent liaison. The PTA offers another opportunity for parents to support the school. We look forward to the continued parent involvement and support from our Fruitvale families.

Dear Fruitvale Families,


The staff at Fruitvale Elementary School welcomes you and your family to the 2016-2017 School Year. We are committed to doing all we can to make this school year a successful experience for every student and firmly believe that a home/school partnership helps maximize this success. Learning is not an easy process and it involves hard work by everyone: the teacher, the parent, administration, and most importantly the student.


Research and experience shows us that parental/guardian involvement in a child’s education is directly related to his/her success in school. To increase your child’s success, emphasize the importance of education through the following:


            Ensure that your child is at school on time each day.

            Expect and support positive behavior at school.

            Monitor your child’s homework daily.

            Read with your child or encourage your child to read daily.

            Attend parent/teacher conferences and school events.


We look forward to an exciting and successful year with our students and thank you in advance for your commitment and support.


Yours truly,


Mr. Joseph Romero

Assistant Principal
