    • Crosswalks at Fruzen

      For the safety of our students walking to school, we ask that they use the crosswalk by the stoplights at the intersection of Milwaukee and Lee. Students will be assisted by an adult crossing guard both before and after school. Finally, the City will install a new crosswalk this fall for that intersection, which will further enhance visibility. (These high-visibility crosswalks can be found already in several spots in our city.)

           Fruzen intermediate School Mission Statement:

                        We are ONE.  We are Fruzen Falcons.
    Fruzen Intermediate School is a learning community of around 600 students in grades 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade and 70 staff in Beloit, Wisconsin.  The families of these students are also an integral part of the learning community as we partner with families to ensure we are meeting all the students' needs.  The dedicated staff believe in the Fruzen mission statement and work collaboratively together to ensure the students are meeting or exceeding the learning and social expectations in all areas to prepare them for the future and to be future leaders.
    In addition to core courses (math, language arts, science, and social studies) students are offered Project Lead the Way courses, arts, music (band, choir, and orchestra), careers course, advanced courses, and other courses supporting students to be prepared for the future and be life long learners.  The students are 1:1 with iPads to enhance and support their learning.
    Fruzen Intermediate School is a brand new school this year! The school was named after longtime educator and administrator in the School District of Beloit, Francis J. Fruzen.
    At Fruzen Intermediate School, we will provide a positive and safe learning environment that prepares all students academically, socially and emotionally for the future.  We believe in the school/family partnership and encourage you to contact us if you or your child needs additional support or resources.  If you have any questions please call me at 608-361-2010.
