Thank You for Your Generosity!

On behalf of all the staff and students at Fallon, I want to thank you for your generous donations to the Fallon PFC during Fall Check-In. We know our parent community places a high value on quality educational programs enriched by a wide variety of clubs, sports, and extracurricular activities. Last year we were able to redesign and furnish our school library with parent donations. Your contributions this year will allow us to upgrade the sound systems in our MPR and gym as well as purchase additional Chromebooks for our classrooms and library. As always, parent donations supplement the funding we use to provide our kids with excellent instruction in English, History, Science, Math, PE, and Elective classes. If you did not have a chance to donate during Fall Check-In, please take a moment to visit the PFC website and make your contribution. Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated! -- Principal Sweeney

An Important Request From Our Neighbors
 
When dropping off and picking up Fallon students, please be considerate of the neighbors who live closest to our school. There is no parking allowed in the cul-de-sacs across Kohnen Way, so please do not use that area as a drop off or pick up location. It is also illegal to block a residential driveway, so please be sure you are parked legally on city streets. Neighbors have let us know that they have been unable to enter and exit their driveways during our busiest times in the morning and afternoon, and there has already been one reported accident. The Dublin Police Department will be patrolling the area and issuing tickets if necessary. Thank you in advance for being a good neighbor and modeling courtesy and respect for our children!


Special School Site Council Meeting to Select Representative(s) for DUSD Community Review Committee

 
The Fallon School Site Council will hold a special meeting at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 23rd, in the Fallon library to select the representative(s) to the DUSD Community Review Committee. All Fallon parents and staff are welcome to attend. For more information about the Community Review Committee, please visit the DUSD website.
 

PFC Enrichment Programs

        Parents, please note that there is no Drama, Math Olympiads or Engineering                         enrichment programs this year. If any parent would like to step forward to lead one of           these programs, please read these FAQs. Parent coaches are still needed for Art and             Chess. PFC will also help parents who would like to start a NEW program. If you are             interested in any of the above, contact fmspfcenrichment@gmail.com.
        
        Please check the  enrichment page  periodically for updates on student signups

       Fallon Odissi and Bollywood
       Students will learn the classical Indian Odissi dance and the exuberant Bollywood dance        taught by Fallon's own parent instructor! Email diptimallik@gmail.com if your student is        interested to join.

         Parent Artists and Art Enthusiasts Needed
 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. We  need folks  to help distribute materials, take photos of classes and art work, pose, and  provide  general support during the sessions. Volunteering artists are encouraged to  lead a  session of their own but not necessary. This is a volunteer-led, after school class  provided at the costs of materials only to Fallon students. See Jen  Huber,  Jenhuberette@gmail.com for more information.
