Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 168th day of school, Friday, June 2nd, 2017. The forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high of about 77 degrees.  

Announcements:

Today is...

National Doughnut Day - annually celebrated as National Doughnut or Donut Day in the United States. The holiday is a continuation of Doughnut Day when members of the Salvation Army provided doughnuts and coffee to service members during the First World War.

On This Day in History:

Parliament completes the Coercive Acts with the Quartering Act - in 1774, the British Parliament renews the Quartering Act, allowing Redcoats to stay in private American homes if necessary. The Quartering Act, in conjunction with the Massachusetts Government Act, the Administration of Justice Act and the Boston Port Act, were known as the Coercive Acts.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Space is not that far away. - Space officially begins at the universal marker of the Karman Line. This invisible boundary is 100km above the Earth. In theory if you could drive your car upwards, you could be in space in less than hour.

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

This week we concentrated on the S in SOAR - Which means Staying Safe at school and in our community. Think about all the good examples you have heard or said what it means to be safe; and remember to try to always stay safe so that you will not get hurt or so that you will not hurt others!

Malcolm X, an African-American Muslim minister and human rights activist, said, "Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today."

Pledge: 

And today, we have Diego Gomez from Mr. Dwyer'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. 

Special Announcements

Remember to 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 all of 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.
