Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mrs. Elias and today is day the ninth day of school, Tuesday, September 6th, 2016.  The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of about 82 degrees.  


Today is...

Read a Book Day - This holiday encourages people to pick up a book and immerse themselves in it.

On This Day in History

On this day in 1901, President William McKinley is shot while shaking hands at the Pan-American Exhibition in Buffalo, New York.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today

The Earth is 4.56 billion years old…the same age as the Moon and the Sun.

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

Today, we are going to focus on stafety at recess. Remember to walk on the blacktop, listen to supervisors, and to use all the equipment correctly. Remember when the bell rings, we freeze, take one knee, wait for the supervisors to blow their whistles, and walk to our lines. If we follow these simple safety rules we will keep ourselves safe.

Barack Obama, the President of the United States, says,"If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress."


Now, please stand for the pledge of allegiance and I will be leading 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!  Last week Mrs. Amador's whole class had Perfect Attendance!  Keep up the great work Rm. 14! 

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 all of 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.
Also, when recycling, please use the barrels in front of Mr. Smith's room 36.  All money made from this will go to special charities that help people.

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.
