Hello Parents of Fallon!!!
Can you believe that there are only 80 days of school left for this year. However, there is still a lot of work to be done. Our students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will begin preparing for the PARCC assessments that begin in April. Our 4th graders will be taking the NAEP testing in March. Then they will also have to take the NECAP Science test. When all of the official test dates are made available to us, we will pass them along to you. During these testing periods students should be going to bed earlier than usual, should not be out of school, and everyone should be having a good breakfast.
The Audubon Society will be coming to visit our third graders on Wednesday, February 15 and Thursday, February 16. The name of the In-School presentation is named, “Everything’s Connected”. After they visit all of our classrooms, our students will have an opportunity to visit the Audubon Society location for a field trip. The topic that will be covered during their visit will be called, “Indoor/Outdoor Habitat Investigation”.
We have been blessed with good weather this winter season. I hope that I did not just jinx’s us. However, we have had a few instances when the weather has not completely cooperated with us. In those instances, the buses have been late and your children have not arrived at their bus stops at their regular times. We understand your anxiety that comes from waiting for your child or children. We here at Fallon are often the last to know when a bus is stuck in traffic or is going to be late. During inclement weather please stay tuned to Class DoJo. That seems to be the best way for us to communicate with you during these tough situations.
Thank You for all you do for us here at Fallon!
