Dear Fruit Street School Families,
As the end of the school year quickly approaches, I wanted to take a moment to share important upcoming dates and extend a thank you to all of the families for making the school year 2016-2017 a success. Our staff is truly humbled to be able to work with your children on a daily basis. The children that walk through the doors at the Fruit Street School demonstrate kindness, ambition, respect, and desire to make this school and the community a better place. We are extremely proud of all of our students and the amazing work they do each and every day.
Students have shown tremendous growth throughout the school year. I would like to take the time to recognize our third grade students and their families for the contributions they have made to the Fruit Street School community. They have been leaders, learners, and friends, as they have developed relationships that will last a lifetime. Our third grade students are ready for their next challenge and the teachers and staff wishes them all the best. As families, your efforts have been appreciated throughout the school year in helping to provide a positive home to school connection. I am providing a calendar of events and you may receive additional information regarding future events as well.
