Letter from Mr. Ritzert

  • Greetings Fruzen Students and Families!  I am excited and honored to be working with the Fruzen staff, students and families as Dean of Students this year at Fran Fruzen Intermediate School!  It has been a great beginning to the school year, I look forward to continuing an amazing school year!

    This is my 19th year in education and fifth year in the School District of Beloit.  I spent 4 years as a teacher at Cunningham Intermediate, teaching both fourth and sixth grades before joining the administrative team at Fruzen.  I am working on learning all of the new names and faces at Fruzen, but I have had the fortune of seeing some familiar students and families as well! 

    I am excited to be part of the “A-Team” along with Dr. Norton and Mrs. Schieve.  We are dedicated to providing the best learning experience for the students and families at Fruzen.  We will continue to work to build partnerships with families as we progress through the year knowing it takes a team effort to educate our students of the School District of Beloit.

    Feel free to stop in to say, “hello!”  I welcome the opportunity to better know our students and families.  You can also email, call or text if you have questions or concerns. I am honored to serve as the Dean of Students at Fran Fruzen Intermediate School!

    Yours In Education,

    Mr. Ritzert
    Dean of Students
