Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 140th day of school, Monday, April 9th, 2018. The forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high of about 89 degrees.  


Today is...

Appomattox Day - A day which commemorates the Union Army General-in-Chief Ulysses S. Grant accepting The Confederate General-in-Chief Robert E. Lee's surrender during the American Civil War in 1865.

On This Day in History:

in 1940 Nazi Germany invades neutral Norway and Denmark, surprising the Norwegian, Danish and British defenders of the countries and capturing several strategic points along the coast.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

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

As we continue to review what good Falcons do we need to think about what it means to be safe. How do you stay safe at school? Make sure you share how we do that with your teacher.

Confucius, a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher, said, "It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop." So if you are taking your tests just remember it's not a race. Slow down and do your best.

And today we have Gerard Carmona from Ms. Mulligan'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 that when traveling through campus you are to stay on all paved areas and off of our grass and landscaped areas because we want all of our plants to grow.

Also remember to be respectful to all of our third, fourth, and fifth graders who will start their state tests this week by being quiet while in the office and libraries; and always remember to stay safe, own our school, act responsibly, and respect everyone where ever you go!
Thank you very much 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.
