It is my pleasure to welcome you back to the Fruitvale School District for the 2017-18 school year, or if you are new to us, welcome to Fruitvale! We are looking forward to another outstanding school year. Students in grades TK-8, along with Special Education students will experience an enriching and rigorous curriculum, a nurturing classroom environment and opportunities for success in many different extra-curricular and co-curricular activities. We are implementing a new standards based English Language Arts program for all students in grades K-8 and are continuing with our district writing program, Step Up to Writing. Technology continues to be a focus area for us and we now have chromebooks for each student in grades 6-8, and approximately 1 chromebook for every 3 students in grades TK-5. We will be piloting new History/Social Science Materials this year and we are preparing for the Next Generation Science Standards in all our classrooms.
Fruitvale continues to be a top performing and award winning school district. This past year, Fruitvale Jr. High was awarded the California Gold Ribbon School Award, joining Columbia Elementary, Discovery Elementary and Endeavour Elementary. Quailwood Elementary is eligible to write for the award this year.
