Dear Fruitvale Junior High School Families,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year! We are embarking on an exciting journey of growth academically, physically and socially as we travel through Junior High together. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to support students, families and our fantastic staff members through this adventure. I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children achieve their highest potential.
Additionally, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce our newly appointed Assistant Principal, Mr. Erick Rouanzoin, to the school community. He comes to us with a wealth of experience in education and is excited to be part of the Fruitvale Family.
Our goal as educators is to partner with you, your son/daughter, and the staff to ensure your child’s growth and success in all areas. We will continue the legacy of excellence established at Fruitvale that maintains a nurturing a safe environment for everyone, uses data to inform common core instruction, provides challenging opportunities for all students, holds high expectations for all, and continues to develop school to college and career skills. The staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family and look forward to working with you and your children.
As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your communication. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any ideas, suggestions, or concerns to help make 2016-2017 the best year yet. I will see you at the bus zone every morning!
