Principal's Message

Dear Fruitdale Families,

Fruitdale is a thriving school community.  Our little county school is known across the state for strong academics and substantial student growth. 

We have strong systems in place to support students at every level.  Our school-wide math and reading systems provide opportunities for all students.  Our teachers work in a collaborative model in which teams meet monthly to analyze a variety of assessments in both reading and math to determine academic needs. 

We are looking forward to our annual family nights.  In fall, we will celebrate the harvest of our garden vegetables.  We invite families to Fruitdale for a night of pumpkin decorating, harvest activities, and garden tours.  In the winter we are looking forward to our family Science Night.  This is a night when we invite the science experts into our school community.  Organizations such as OMSI, Science Works, Bugs R Us, Wildlife Images, Rocks and Mineral Club, Astronomer’s Club, and many more come and learn with Fruitdale students.  These are nights not to miss.  Check our website and newsletters for dates and times of these exciting events. 

I look forward to being a part of your child’s education.  If you have any questions, please contact me.
