Letter from Mrs. Schieve

  • Hello Fruzen Families! 
    I am honored to serve at Fruzen Intermediate School again this year as one of your Assistant Principals.  I earned my bachelor’s degree from Beloit College, my master's degree in education from UW-Lacrosse and completed my administration work through Concordia University- Wisconsin.  I began my teaching career in the School District of Beloit in 2007 and have been a teacher at McNeel, Robinson and McLenegan. 

    Although the start of this year has been different for everyone, I am committed to helping you and your family navigate through distance learning as best as we can.  I am also looking forward to returning to in-person learning as soon as possible!

    Our administration team, or “A-Team” as we like to call it, is working tirelessly to ensure we continue to move forward and improve the learning environment for our students and staff, whether in person or online.  I look forward to seeing all the amazing things that are in store for our Fruzen family this year!

    Yours in education,
    Mrs. Schieve
    Assistant Principal

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 Assistant Principal this year at Fran Fruzen Intermediate School!  It has been a great beginning to the school year, I look forward to SOARing through an amazing school year!

    This is my 20th year in education and sixth year in the School District of Beloit.  I spent 4 years as a teacher at Cunningham Intermediate before joining the administrative team at Fruzen.  This 2020-21 school year has started with some of the same challenges we faced last spring.  Together we can accomplish anything, we look forward to returning to in-person learning.

    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.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I am honored to serve as the Assistant Principal at Fran Fruzen Intermediate School, where OUR Falcons SOAR!

    Yours In Education,
    Mr. Ritzert
