Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today the 56th day of school, Monday, November 15th, 2016.  The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 81 degrees.  


Today is...

Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day, a day to clear out your fridge of all the suspicious looking, probably living and now procreating foods.

On This Day in History:

On this day in 1867, the first stock ticker is unveiled in New York City. The advent of the ticker ultimately revolutionized the stock market by making up-to-the-minute prices available to investors around the country.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today

Sunlight takes about 8 minutes & 20 seconds to reach the Earth at 186,282 miles/sec (299,792 Km/sec).

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

To own our school we must own our library. Owning our library means using placement boards the rigth way, keeping the shelves as neat as possible, no running, and using quiet voices.

Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, said, "This Earth is our only home. Together, we must protect and cherish it."


Today, we have Nicolas Molina from Mrs. Merry's class to lead us 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.

Remember, Safety First!
  • On your way to and from school remember to use all crosswalks, obey all traffic signals, and watch out for one another.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus.
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • Play safe on the playground and when the bell rings to line up, you freeze, wait for a teacher to blow his or her whistle, and walk to your line safely. We do not want anyone running as you could get hurt.
  • When you arrive at school in the morning, you are to sit at the lunch tables. All students are to remain sitting at the lunch tables until a teacher says that you may get up to line up.
  • Please remember to pick up after yourself after you eat breakfast, snack, and lunch.  Mr. Larios does not want to pick up after you!
  • At the end of the day, please leave the campus quickly and either walk home or wait in front of the office for you parents.  If your ride is not there, please wait at the front of the school patiently and quietly for your ride.
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.
