During drop-off if solicitors are approaching families near our school , we’d like to let you know these solicitors are not associated with our school, or the Dublin Unified School District. In order to preserve safety students and families should not interact with them.
Messages from the TLC (Team Leadership Class) & Ms. Venezia, our Leadership Teacher and Activities Director.
Hello Fallon Families,
We are excited for a fun and spirited new school year and are ready to embrace all things. It was great to see how many students and families purchased our spirit attire at the ASB sales table during fall check in. Just a reminder that you are able to purchase spirit attire at any time by visiting our school web store or the ASB window in between the hours of 9am and 4pm. We have several new designs available for purchase and select sizes of our discontinued items for sale.
Here are some monthly opportunities to wear your spirit attire!
-Every Friday is Mustang Day this year. This is our weekly spirit day where students are encouraged to wear Fallon Spirit Attire, we red/white/blue, and go all out!
-The LAST Tuesday of each month is now being coined as "Tye Dye Tuesday". We now have TWO tye dye shirt designs to choose from. Be sure to check them out!
-On the 22nd of each month, we celebrate "Tutu Day" - coined from the 22nd being 2-2...see what we did there :) Be sure to come dressed in your fun and favorite Tutu. Tutu's can be purchased at a variety of locations (Amazon & Party City are a couple suggestions).
One Tribe Wednesday!
Steadily approaching is our annual One Tribe Wednesday! This is when our Fallon Students & Staff come together for a day filled with team bonding, building community, celebrating our Mustang Pride, enjoy our first rally of the year and so much more! One Tribe Wednesday will be on Wednesday, August 21st and take place during the school day. Students are encouraged to wear their FMS Spirit Attire and go all out!
Donations to the ASB for spirit events:
Each week, Lunchte Activities are hosted by Leadership Students during grade level lunches. Often candy and small prizes are given as a special treat for participating. If you are interested in donating items, please address them to Ms. Venezia and deliver them to the Drop Off table in the main office.
As always, we appreciate your support, encouragement, and contributions to our students.
