Volunteer Chaperones Needed for School Dances
Parent and staff supervision ensures that all students have a fun and safe time at school dances. Please volunteer to chaperone at least one school dance during your child's three years at Fallon. Failure to secure a sufficient number of parent chaperones may result in cancellation of future events. Please check the following Sign-up Genius link to sign up as chaperones for various dance events organized by the school: 
Fallon Teachers Have Posted Projects on "Donors Choose" Website
Many parents are familiar with the Donors Choose website that allows people to contribute to specific school projects and needs posted by individual teachers.   
In fact, some companies including Chevron here in the East Bay provide employees with credits to donate on  Donorschoose.org. Please use the search term 'Eleanor Murray Fallon School' to see several projects posted by Fallon teachers  and help support our school and students in this way! 

Traffic Safety Reminders
Thank you to everyone who is regularly obeying traffic rules in our drop-off and pick-up circle. In addition, please slow down and stay alert on the streets around Fallon and remind your children to pay attention as they are commuting to school. Recently, a Fallon student suffered minor injuries after being struck by a car in an intersection. The Fallon administrative team and district leaders are working with the Dublin Police Department to explore additional measures that can be taken to safeguard our students. Together we can ensure that our students have safe routes to and from the school.
