Parent Survey
Fallon Middle School PFC & School Site Council are conducting a survey to determine if we have enough parent interest to host an informational night on the U.S. public education system. This event would be mainly for parents who have studied in other countries during their middle and high school years. This will not be an individualised counselling session, but a general information night. The survey results will be kept confidential.Thank you so much.
