Principal's Message

Dear Friends and Families,
On behalf of the Quailwood Staff, it is my honor to welcome you as we begin yet another exciting school year. In keeping with Fruitvale School District's high standards and expectations, I am excited to begin the 2018-19 school year with you. Quailwood has an amazing history of not only academic success, but also teaching kids the importance of perseverance, integrity, and character.  We understand the importance of partnering with others to provide our students  every opportunity to be successful. 
We are lucky to have a wonderful and active P.T.C. (Parent Teacher Club) who enrich and support our staff and students. We have amazing parent and community volunteers who help to ensure that each child has what they need to be successful.  Our strong support staff, which includes our reading specialist, counselor, school nurse, instructional aides, cafeteria staff, yard aides, and custodians all work tirelessly to provide a safe and nurturing environment.
Quailwood's highly qualified and dedicated teachers use standards-based curriculum and technology to ensure their students' success. Our teachers work hard, and they work together. They expect the same of their kids.  All students collaborate, communicate, use critical thinking skills, and creativity to solve problems.  Our Character Counts Program and "Best in the West Celebrations" honor exemplary character.  We provide opportunities for students to participate in service learning and community projects such as recycling to sponsor our local kennel at the SPCA and honoring local Veteran's at our annual Veteran's Day Program.  Our goal is to prepare all students to be productive, hard working global-minded citizens. 
To ensure your child's success, we encourage regular and prompt attendance - all day, every day - because, as we know, students don't learn if they aren't here. Thank you in advance for helping us maintain an attendance average that we take great pride in. 
We look forward to partnering with you to provide the best school year for all our students. Please don't hesitate to call or come see me if you have any questions, my door is always open.  
Go Cougars!
