Cultivating innovation, achievement and passion through a learner centered environment

       A Message From the Principal:

Greetings Wildcat fans, parents and supporters!

With the second semester well under way, we want to thank everyone for their continued support of our students, teachers, and school as we collectively strive to provide optimal opportunities for learning each and every day. In addition, we want to welcome our new families to Fruita Monument and trust that you will find yourselves part of an outstanding and supportive learning community.

Congratulations! I would like to congratulate Brielle Thomas on being selected as a semi-finalist for the Boettcher Scholarship competition. Only 300 of the 1,400 applicants state-wide make it this far. Statistically, a school our size should earn a Boettcher Scholarship about once every 7 to 8 years.  We have far exceeded that expectation and traditionally have finalists on a yearly basis. It is an amazing accomplishment in the past to have had three in one year. The Boettcher Scholarship is the most prestigious merit-based scholarship available to graduating high school seniors in the state of Colorado. Begun in 1952, by Claude Boettcher, the Boettcher Scholarship was initially modeled after the Rhodes Scholarship Program. The purpose of the Boettcher Scholarship is to attract Colorado’s best and brightest to attend colleges within the state. The Boettcher Scholarship covers the cost of a Scholar’s tuition, fees, and books for eight semesters at any of Colorado’s four-year universities or colleges (can be in excess of $160,000 depending upon a number of factors). Best wishes to Brielle! We are all so proud of your hard work, dedication and amazing accomplishments!
