Announcements:

Today is...

Sauntering Day - an annual holiday that reminds people to pause, take a stock of their busy schedules, and slow down for a bit. And because the day has the word sauntering in it, it also encourages everyone to take a leisurely walk.

On This Day in History:

War of 1812 begins - The day after the Senate followed the House of Representatives in voting to declare war against Great Britain, President James Madison signs the declaration into law–and the War of 1812 begins.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

In 2.3 billion years it will be too hot for life to exist on Earth

Today, is our last full day this year at Farr, so make sure to be kind to your fellow Falcons and do what what do SOAR!

Neil deGrasse Tyson, American astrophysicist, author, and science communicator, said, "We live on this speck called Earth - think about what you might do, today or tomorrow - and make the most of it."

Pledge: 

And today we have Griselda Gonzalez from Mrs. Oakley'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.
