Today is...

Pretzel Day - A day to celebrate the doughy, salty snack called Pretzel.

On This Day in History:

On this day in 1954, the Salk polio vaccine field trials, involving 1.8 million children, begin at the Franklin Sherman Elementary School in McLean, Virginia. On April 12, 1955, researchers announced the vaccine was safe and effective and it quickly became a standard part of childhood immunizations in America.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

It can take a photon 40,000 years to travel from the core of the sun to its surface, but only 8 minutes to travel the rest of the way to Earth

When we own our school and work to keep it clean it shows that we are proud of where we learn and who we are because we show others that we care.

Pledge: 

And today, we have Aliana Olivares from Ms. Felipe'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

If you like pizza, especially Chuck E. Cheese pizza, this Friday from 3:00 - 9:00 pm the Farr PTA will be having a fundraiser at Chuck E. Cheese and a percentage of what you buy will go to funding special events and programs for you, so tell your parents and make your way over to Chuck E. Cheese this Friday.

And...Boys and girls, please make sure that while you are in the office or library you are quiet and respectful of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders who will be taking important state exams today.

Also remember to please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school because we want 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.
