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

This s our last semi-full week of school and I wanted to remind you that we are reviewing what it means to be a Farr Falcon. What is it that we do? That's right, we SOAR, and last week we reviewed owning our school and acting responsibly, and that leaves...respecting everyone, so think about what respect is and share what you think it is with your classmates and teachers..

Michael Jordan, retired professional basketball player, considered one of the best ever, said, "Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."

Pledge: 

And today we have... from Mr...... 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 students by being quiet while in the office and library; and always remember to stay safe, own our school, act responsibly, and respect everyone where ever you go!

Have an excellent 4 day week!  After this one we only have Monday and Tuesday!
 
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.
