Math Placement Information Night

Please mark your calendars for the middle school math information night on
Thursday, February 2, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm (MPR) .  This meeting is intended for the
parents of current 6th and 7th grade students at Fallon.  Come to meet the Fallon math team, learn about our vision, and specific details about the courses being offered for students next year.  The Dublin Unified School District Math Curriculum Council has updated the placement process and we will be rolling out the details during this meeting. (There will be separate meetings scheduled in a few weeks for the parents of next year's 6th graders as well as our current 8th graders who are moving on to high school.)
If you are unable to make the meeting at Fallon on February 2, you can also attend the meeting at Wells Middle School on Wednesday, February 1.

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 individualized counselling session, but a general information night. The survey results will be kept confidential.Thank you so much.
