Today is...

Darwin Day - The holiday honors the life and work of English naturalist Charles Darwin. Also known as International Darwin Day, the day is a celebration of science and humanity.

On This Day in History:

In 1809, Abraham Lincoln is born in Hodgenville, Kentucky - Lincoln, one of America’s most admired presidents, grew up a member of a poor family in Kentucky and Indiana. Lincoln is remembered as The Great Emancipator. Although he waffled on the subject of slavery in the early years of his presidency, his greatest legacy was his work to preserve the Union and his signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

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

This week for the Season for Non Violence we will continue to focus on appreciation. Remember what appreciation means? Yes, it means to admire or be grateful for something. Did you challenge yourself last week and write down 5 things you appreciate about yourself? If you didn't, please don't forget to do this and share your thoughts with someone else. Remember, as Louise Hay, said, "the love in our lives begins with us" and that love, "will help heal this planet." So, take the time to think about what you appreciate about yourself or others because Peace begins with you!
Pledge: 

And today we have Alexander Martinez from Mrs. Gonzalez'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

Please remember that when you are in the hallways, in the office, or in the library, you are quiet and respectful of those students who are doing their best and working hard on the MAP and ELPAC Tests.

Also, those of you who are taking tests, remember that you need to slow down, read the questions thoroughly, listen carefully, and try your very best so that you can reach your goals. Remember that when you do well you feel good about yourself, so always SOAR when taking your tests.

Finally, remember that when traveling through campus you should stay off of landscaped areas, the grass, and planters; and walk on the paths so that our grass and plants can grow. 
 
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.
