SBAC Testing
State Testing Begins on Monday (5/9/16)
All students at Fallon Middle School will begin taking the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) this coming Monday (5/9/16). Testing will continue through the end of the week for 6th and 7th graders and will be completed on Tuesday, May 17th for 8th graders. Make up testing will be scheduled the week of May 16th. Please remind your children to bring earbuds with them to school on Monday if they have them, as part of the test has a listening component. Students do not need to purchase earbuds if they do not own them; we will have headsets available instead. Thank you!
Please click here for the detailed dates and times for Fallon's State Mandated Testing. The link also includes the bell schedule, test schedule and important information from Mrs. Sweeney about testing. Please do not schedule any appointments during the listed times.

8th Grade Events

Important Note:  Change in Start Time for Promotion
Families of 8th-graders, please make a note that the start time for our 8th-grade promotion on 
June 10th  has been changed to 6 PM. Since we will be sharing the DHS facilities with Wells, the later start time will ensure that the parking area has been cleared and will give the district maintenance crews ample time to prepare the stadium for this special night.

8th Grade Year End Packet
Please download here.
 Forms due by May 13th.

We are including a page for the 8th grade events on the PFC site at  https://sites.google.com/site/fallonschoolpfc/8th-grade-year-end-events


We will also have important events listed separately on the Fallon Flash.

Measure H Volunteers
Measure H Committee has contacted the Fallon PFC to help get the word out on Measure H.  They are seeking volunteers in the following areas.

1. Parent Liaison to work with the committee.  This person would represent Fallon PFC and work closely with the committee and its members.
2. Volunteers for the Phone Bank nights. 
The Committee has organized several Phone Bank Nights for each school site.  Phone Bank Nights are an easy way to get the word out to the community about the Bond on this June's ballot. 

Fallon is scheduled for
Thursday May 12th
Wednesday June 1st
Phone Bank times:  5:30pm-8:30pm
Phone Bank location: Dublin Toyota at 4321 Toyota Dr.

After volunteers sign-up for a date/time they arrive at Dublin Toyota to get a brief training, a cell phone and a basic script of information for phone calls. It's really easy and you don't need to study up on the bond measure prior to arriving.

If you are interested in being the Parent Liaison position or would like to volunteer for the Phone Bank, please click on the following link.
