Fallon One Tribe Wednesday

This Wednesday all Fallon students will participate in our annual "One Tribe Wednesday " celebration. It is a day for us to bond as a school and have a unifying experience. Students will spend the entire day with their Period 1 teacher and participate in a variety of activities. Students can look forward to class bonding at a grade level rally, learning more about how to combat bullying and be an upstander, strengthening their growth mindset, getting their minder binder organized for the year, and much more! We value the community we have at Fallon and we are excited to start the year off with this awesome day!

The Splash of Art after school enrichment program is looking for parents or High School volunteers (hours!) who can help with Art program held for middle school students.
