Important Yearbook Announcements

Have you bought a yearbook yet? Don't let your student miss out on this year's memories. Yearbooks will only be on sale through Friday, January 12. While there may be a few overruns available for purchase at the end of the year, buying yours by January 12 is the only way to guarantee that you will get one. Purchase at the ASB window or online at the ASB store. Unsure whether you have already purchased one? A list of those who have purchased one is posted outside the ASB window near the office. You may also check with Mary Armanuse at the ASB desk x6306 or armanusemaryann@dublinusd.org.

Want to give your 8 th Grader a special gift? How about a personal ad in the yearbook? Ad sales start this week and continue through Friday, January 26 or until all ads are sold, whichever is first. The price has dropped to $35 this year! Ad space will go fast. Design your own and purchase online at https://yearbookforever.com/# and select Fallon Middle School. Ad sales are for 8th grade families ONLY; ads will not be permitted for students in other grades. One ad per family, please.

Do you have a student who goes by a name at school different than the one listed in Infinite Campus? Would you prefer that this name appear in the yearbook instead? Please email Ms. Geasa directly at geasavena@dublinusd.org by Friday, January 12. Include your name, your relationship to the student, the student's legal name (as listed in Infinite Campus), and the name you would like to have appear in the yearbook. Only emails from a legal parent/guardian will be honored; emails from students will not be accepted. Due to our publishing deadlines, we are not able to honor requests that are received after January 12.

Important Band Announcement

One of our new music teachers, Mr. Cavalieri, is seeking help getting our students fitted for their band uniforms. He needs help starting the week of January 16 and continuing for approximately 3 weeks, during periods 2,3,and 4. The process is fairly simple and brief training will be provided. If you are able to help out, please follow the link below to sign up for as many time slots as you would like. You may sign up for multiple slots on the same day and/or the same slot across multiple days. If there is a parent/guardian who is available to volunteer for the duration, it would be wonderful to have a consistent lead to ease the process. If you are able to be the point person, please email Mr.Cavalieri directly at cavalierijoseph@dublinusd.org. It is not necessary to have a student in band to volunteer; all help is appreciated. Please click here.

Student Safety

Parents: for student safety please park and come into the office when dropping off items for your child (lunches etc.). Having students walk to the curb presents a potential safety hazard. Thank you for supporting school safety.
