  • In February 2016, we formed a group of parents, staff and community members as the "Falcon Zone Coalition." At this time, at the start of the 2016-2017 school year, we have 14 members who are dedicated to supporting two goals for the coming year: Improving communication and engagement with students, staff and parents between and among school sites; and broadening and enhancing communication with the overall Falcon Zone community. At the August meeting, the team decided to begin immediate work on the first goal, so look for more information soon regarding progress and action in this area.
