Fallbrook Street School
December I‟d like to provide an update as to what‟s been going around campus… This fall we had a
6 -Report Cards number of fantastic assemblies! The children enjoyed a classical music concert
20 – PTA Meeting @ 8:15 presented by the Music Society. The Wild Animal Park provided the children with an
20 – Student Store opportunity to see, touch, and pretend to be animals! 2nds graders went on a walking
21 Break Begins field trip to see “Grease” at Mission Theater. During Red Ribbon Week, we planted an
January 2008 Ornamental Carrot tree located near the main entrance. The tree represents our
7 – School Resumes efforts at making good choices and was generously donated from Santa Margarita
17 - PTA Meeting Nursery. And earlier this month students from Fallbrook High School performed a sign
language assembly. And, 1st graders went on a walking field trip to see “Scrooge” @
Box Tops for Education Mission Theater. Be sure to talk with your child(ren) about these fabulous assemblies
and encourage them to share their experiences.
Next time you are on FSS campus, take a moment to look at the glass case located by
the office. PTA will be using the case to display photos from recent school

benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more advantages. Here are just a few:
Get Connected. There‟s no better way to know what‟s happening in your school!
Discover Great Resources. PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
Tap into a Network. PTA functions provide opportunities to meet other parents and teachers.
Watch yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences and personal confidence. It‟s an
opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause.
Speak Up. Because PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions and more effectively
suggest change at your child‟s school.
Help Your Child Succeed. PTA fosters parent involvement. Parent involvement has been proven by three decades of research
to be the greatest predictor of student success.
Witness Improvement. By getting involved at school you‟ll be part of the solution, helping to make positive changes.
