Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 153rd day of school, Friday, May 12th, 2017.  The forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high of about 71 degrees.  

Announcements:

Today is...

Limerick Day - It is a holiday that encourages people to read and write limericks, a genre of humorous poetry that first originated in England in the 18th century.

On This Day in History:

in 1984 after 22 years of imprisonment for his political activism in South Africa, Nelson Mandela is set free and soon becomes president of his country.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Rain is made from water vapor in the air. The water vapor collects small air particles like dust and additional water vapor to make clouds. When the drops of water in the cloud grow large enough, it falls as rain.

At Farr Avenue School, Falcon's S.O.A.R...

This week we talked about safe routes to school. Let's think back to what we talked about and discuss what we need to do to be safe when coming to school and leaving school.

John F. Kennedy, an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963, said, "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."

Pledge: 

And today, we have Alexa Ramirez from Mrs. Moreno-Hall's  class to lead you in the pledge.  Now, please stand...Put your right hand over your heart, ready begin...

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. 

Special Announcements

Please make sure that while you are in the office or library you are quiet and respectful of students taking MAP tests and SBAC exams.

Also remember to please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school because we want our plants to grow!

Finally, remember to always stay safe on the playground, around our school, on your way to and from school.
 
Thank you for your attention to this morning's message, S.O.A.R. today, and remember to come to school every day and on time because when you miss school you miss out.
