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 competition in Lakeside 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; and great job to all of our competitors!  

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.
