Promotion Dance
Your student will be coming home with an invitation and permission slip for the 8th grade promotion dance to be held May 20, 2017 at Dublin High School in the Student Union from 7-10pm. The cost is $25.  This dance is sponsored by the Fallon PFC rather than the school, so the "All Dance Pass" cannot be used for this dance.  Please turn in the permission slip and pay by April 21, 2017  so the committee can budget accordingly.
If you are interested in being part of the planning committee, please contact noigomez@yahoo.com or daniellemcdonald2001@yahoo.com.
We need parents of current  6th or 7th grade students to chaperone this special event, so  please use this   link  to sign up. Thank you in advance for your help!
