Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 131st day of school, Tuesday, March 28th, 2017.  The forecast calls for sunny sunny skies with a high of about 75 degrees.  


Today is...

Something on a Stick Day. It is a day to have fun with your food and to celebrate delicious and easy-to-eat dishes on a stick.

On This Day in History:

British Parliament adopts the Coercive Acts - Upset by the Boston Tea Party and other blatant acts of destruction of British property by American colonists, the British Parliament enacts the Coercive Acts, to the outrage of American Patriots, on this day in 1774.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

The average person accidentally eats 430 bugs each year of their life

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

Remember that we are talking about respect and today we will talk about being respectful on the bus. On the bus we need to make sure that we are polite, kind, and that we use our manners. When we do this it not only shows respect but also makes it easier for your drivers and teachers to keep you safe.

Julius Erving, commonly known by the nickname Dr. J, is an American retired basketball player who helped popularize a modern style of play that emphasizes leaping and playing above the rim, said, "I firmly believe that respect is a lot more important, and a lot greater, than popularity."


And today, we have Erik Ramirez from Mrs. Amador'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

How many of you like the movies?  Well, this Friday night PTA will have Family Movie Night from 7 - 9 on the grass and we will be showing showing Moana, so make sure to tell your parents and come enjoy a movie with your friends this Friday night.

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

And...remember to always stay safe on the playground, around our school, and 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.
