Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is day the fourteenth day of school, Tuesday, September 13th, 2016.  The forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high of about 73 degrees.  


Today is...

Roald Dahl Day - a holiday dedicated to one of the world’s greatest storytellers.

On This Day in History

In 1814, Francis Scott Key pens a poem which is later set to music and in 1931 becomes America’s national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Here's Your Science Fact for Today

The most dangerous animal in the world is the common housefly. Because of their habits of visiting animal waste, they transmit more diseases than any other animal.

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

Today, we are going to talk about staying safe in the computer lab. First, we need to make sure that we walk into and out of the labs calmly and quietly. We must also make sure to keep our hands, feet, and objects to ourselves. Finally, always listen to your teacher and make sure that you do not use the computers in an inappropriate way.

Winston Churchill, Statesman and Prime Minister of England during the Second World War, said, "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm."


Now, please stand as I lead you in the pledge...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 

Please remember to come to school everyday and on time; and maybe you can win one of the great prizes in our attendance raffle!  Also, remember to recycle in the fifth grade bins in front of room 36.  All money made will go to charities that help others.

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.
