This week we will be reviewing how to respect everyone in our school, in our community, and at home. Think back and try to remember what we talked about in regard to respect just a few months ago, and think about why it is important to respect others.

Pledge: 

And today, we have _________________________ Mrs. Perkin'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

A big shout out to Farr's STEAM Team who competed, for the first time ever, in the San Diego County Science Field Day this weekend.  Our 5th graders went up against 6th graders, 65 schools, schools with multiple teams, schools with individual coaches for each of the 15 events, AND OUR FARR FALCONS SOARED! Farr's STEAM Team placed in 6 of the 15 events! A big thank you to Mrs. Wood, who worked hard to make sure that each student was ready to do well in their perspective event.  Well done Farr STEAM Team!

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.
