Welcome to Fruchthendler Elementary School, an A+ School of Excellence, with an A rating. Your upcoming school year will be a rewarding and educational experience for your child(ren). The PTA at Fruchthendler actively supports the teachers and students through many varied programs such as Chess Club, Art Enrichment, PE, recorders, and Track/Field, as well as sponsoring fun community get togethers such as the Fall Carnival, Movie Night, Rodeo Breakfast and the annual Art Show. We also encourage academics by hosting and supporting the Scripps Spelling Bee, and SARSEF Science Fair. 


The PTA raises funds to directly impact our children, their classrooms and teachers. We support classroom enrichment activities by providing field trip buses, and organizing an Art Enrichment committee of parent volunteers to bring the Fine Arts into the classrooms. 

We invite you to become involved. We have a multitude of volunteer opportunities available, at school and at home, for anyone interested. Let’s continue Fruchthendler’s Excelling tradition.
