Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 146th day of school, Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017.  The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 84 degrees.  


Today is...

Brothers and Sisters Day - A day to make sure that we show our siblings how much we love them.

On This Day in History:

in 1933 Although accounts of an aquatic beast living in Scotland’s Loch Ness date back 1,500 years, the modern legend of the Loch Ness Monster is born when a sighting makes local news on May 2, 1933.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Humans have a stage of sleep that features rapid eye movement (REM). REM sleep makes up around 25% of total sleep time and is often when you have your most vivid dreams

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

This week we are talking about acting responsibly and when we talk about responsibility that means that we are responsible in our classrooms, at all outside areas, during assemblies, and in our communities; and remember when we show that we care what we do and how we act, we show that we are responsible.

Phyllis Diller, an American actress and stand-up comedienne, said, "A smile is a curve that sets everything straight."


And today, we have Nohemi Martinez from Ms. Tyler'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.
