Middle School Wellness Night

Fallon will host a Middle School Wellness Night-"Forging a Path for High school and Beyond" on May 1, 6-8.30pm. This will include a keynote speaker, George Papageorge MFT, and panel discussion. Please see the flyer for more information.

Fallon Open House-May 3rd

Please join us as we celebrate another successful school year by opening our classrooms this Wednesday, May 3rd,  to view Fallon students' accomplishments and to thank their teachers. There is no formal program for the evening, and you are invited to arrive and participate at any time between 6:30 and 8:00 p.m. Because many families will be walking in and out of classrooms throughout the evening, Open House is not an appropriate time to talk with teachers about your child's individual progress. Kindly 
leave a note or email individual teachers to schedule a conference. Parking may prove to be a challenge during Open House; if possible, we recommend walking or carpooling with neighbors.

T-dap Requirements for incoming 7th graders

Incoming 7th graders must show proof of having received the T-dap booster immunization. Thank you to the 466 parents who have submitted T-dap records!! This will be so helpful in keeping  Fall Check in Lines much shorter.  We still need T-dap records from only 46 more parents!!
Incoming 7th grade students who do not show proof will be excluded from school until such proof is received.  In order to expedite the Fall check in process, all proof must be submitted to the Fallon Health Office on or before May 1, 2017.
Another reminder is that Allergy season is upon us, remember that any medication must accompany a doctor signed medication administration form.  This includes ALL prescription medication, AND over the counter medication
If you have any questions, Please contact Tanya Pittson, FMS Health Services Assistant at 925-875-9376 (extn. 6312).

Fallon School Site Council

The Fallon School Site Council (SSC) is composed of faculty members, parents and community members working together to maintain the best educational environment for our students. With that goal in mind, we are asking interested parents to consider nominating themselves or another 2017-2018 Fallon parent. These members are part of the voting membership of the SSC and serve as the representative voice of all Fallon Middle School parents.
We have two open positions for the upcoming school year. Each position is for a two year term. SSC members will be elected by all attending parents in a general election held during our May 15th meeting at 3.30 pm. If elected, members are expected to attend our monthly meetings which are usually scheduled on the second Monday of the month from 3:30 pm to approximately 4:30 pm.
If you're interested in joining, please email with a short  statement of interest t o Swati Chopra at  swatichopra@yahoo.com.
