See DubRun Information

      The DUSD Fifth Annual Wellness Fair and SeeDubRun 5K Color Run/Walk and 10K event         is just around the corner, taking place on Sunday, October 8, 2017 at DHS. Held in               partnership with Dublin Integrity In Action, this event raises funds for Wellness,                   Character Ed and Bullying Prevention programs. On a daily basis, these three areas               have an important and significant effect on students having a positive school experience,       both academically and behaviorally. With attendance being a major factor in a student's         success, a student with Wellness, behavioral concerns or who may be fearful of being           bullied, needs assistance from these programs we provide in support of our families.             Registration information is here.

Clubs and Enrichment Fair

Research indicates that students who participate in extracurricular activities and feel a strong sense of belonging and connection to their schools also improve their academic outcomes. If your child is not already involved in a club, sport, or after-school enrichment program at Fallon, please encourage him/her to attend the Clubs and Enrichment Fair this Friday (9/22/17) during lunch or Academic Prep period. Student members, faculty advisors, and parent volunteers will be on hand to talk to students about all the fun ways they can get involved at Fallon outside the classroom.
