Principal's Message




Dear Fruitvale Families,


Welcome to the 2021/2022 school year. At Fruitvale Elementary we believe that it is important for our students to be connected to school through positive relationships and a strong sense of community.  I believe that every student can learn and be successful if provided the right supports and opportunities.  Our teachers and staff are committed to providing all students with an appropriate and challenging educational experience in a respectful environment that fosters learning and growth.


A crucial part of success for students is attendance.  As a parent or guardian, it is essential for you to maintain an attitude that “Every Day Counts” for students to be in school and ready to learn each day.  At Fruitvale, we will assist in helping parents and families understand the importance of instructional time and school attendance.  Additionally at Fruitvale, we recognize that family and community support are integral to our success.   Parents/Guardians play the most important roles in a student's success and I invite you to collaborate with our school's PTA in your student's education.


When we take the time to strategically plan, forge positive relationships, celebrate our achievements, and continue to build on our successful foundation, we can foster a learning environment where our entire community thrives.

Welcome back Falcons! Have a great school year!
