Join us on Thursday, September 12, 2019, from 6:00 to 8:30 PM for K-8 Parent Night! Meet with classroom teachers to learn about your child’s day. We also discuss the ins and outs of the classroom and our philosophy and approach to learning across all academic areas.
There will be light dinner offerings for everyone to nibble on and VA parking is available. Please refer to the email sent on September 4th for additional parking options.
As a parents-only event—given the scope and size of it—it will be impossible for the school to offer childcare. In support of all of the families who would like to attend the Parent Night and who need child care and to earn money for their annual eighth grade trip, Ms. Coughlin's eighth grade class has babysitters among them who are offering their services. If you are interested in child care for Parent Night, or for other times, please contact Eileen Coughlin firstname.lastname@example.org.

NEW MEMBERS START OCTOBER 1ST!
3:30 PM to 4:15 PM
In Art Studio 208
Anyone in Grades 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th is invited to participate.
Returning members of Giant Puppet Dance Club will meet on Tuesdays in September, prior to the start of new members in October.
About Giant Puppet Dance Club
Participants come together once a week to learn new dances and practice them in giant puppets. We typically meet in Art Studio 208 at 3:30 PM and then, weather permitting, move out to the rooftop terrace for the second part of our time together. Giant Puppet Dance Club is a free activity. Regular participants are often invited to join in fun puppet parades and performances outside of school but all activities are optional.
Parents should plan to pick up their child promptly at 4:15 PM in the lobby or they will be signed into the Extended Day Program where Extended Day fees will apply. Students attending Giant Puppet Dance Club should write "puppets" on the dismissal form in Advisory or Home Room and come directly to Art Studio 208 at 3:30 PM.
Parents of NEW MEMBERS should confirm their participation by sending an email to Ms. Capezzuti at email@example.com.
Schuyler Bailar, Harvard Class of 2019 and the first NCAA D1 transgender men’s athlete, is visiting Pittsburgh September 26th – September 27th for a round of speaking events hosted by The Persad Center (Public Event), TransPride Pittsburgh (Professionals Event), Falk Laboratory School (Private Event) and a district-wide, school-day event at Brashear High School (Private Event).
This is part of his 2019 Graduation “Give-Back” Tour: 40 events, 25 cities, 7 weeks!
We invite you, your friends, and colleagues to an uplifting and engaging evening at the Free Public event at The Persad Center, September 26, 2019, 6:00 PM (click here for more details and optional RSVP).
Since being recruited for the Harvard Men’s Swim team in 2015 as the first transgender athlete to compete on any NCAA D1 men’s team, he has told his story across the country in over 100 appearances, including on The Ellen Show, 60 Minutes, at the CIA, the NCAA, as well as scores of conferences, companies, and schools. His talk has inspired many to pursue their dreams while also finding comfort and grounding in who they are.
If you're not already familiar with GOTR, it is a wonderful girls youth development program that uses running as a secondary platform for having discussions about things like confidence, standing up for our friends, inner beauty, and leadership. Your daughter does not need to know how to run or may not have ever expressed an interest in running, but don't let that stop you from considering this program. At the end of the 10 week program, the goal is to complete a 5K with an adult buddy. The 5k can be walked, walk-run or run. The program aims to help girls learn to enjoy physical activity, not competition.
Fall registration opened yesterday, August 28th. The team size is limited to 15, so there is a lottery period from August 28th to September 4th. All who sign up within that time will be entered into the pool. If the team is not full by that time, registration remains open until September 13th.
Practice will start September 17th and will run Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:00 PM from the Falk Lobby.
Go to gotrmagee.org for more information and to register.

- What: GOTR is a physical activity based youth development program where girls learn important life skills

Falk students are consuming fruit in record numbers! Each month our students eat:
- 32 boxes of grapes (16 red and 16 green)
- 8 boxes of oranges
- 8 boxes of bananas
- 12 boxes of apples
We need your help
to cut all of this fruit!
If you've never had the pleasure, it's an awesome opportunity to interact with the children! They enjoy seeing family and friends in their space. The commitment is to work a full or partial lunch period (10:30 AM - 1:15 PM) cutting the school’s fresh fruit and presenting it to the children. Thank you to the Falk parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends for donating time to cut and serve fresh fruit!
If you are considering volunteering and need to split a shift, contact directly to do so. Also, please make sure that you're arriving at least 15 minutes prior to the start of your shift.
You can sign-up to volunteer at:
Email any questions to LaTonya Rice at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that we require child protection clearances for those who volunteer to cut fruit more than twice per academic year.
In order to make volunteering more effect for you and the FPO, we are conducting this survey. This survey will take about 5 minutes of your time and it will help us to better organize and plan FPO events and activities for you. Thank you for your time and we look forward to an exciting 2019-2020 school year! Questions? Contact the FPO Members: FalkParentOrganization@pitt.edu
