Good Morning Farr Falcons!

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Sound comes from vibrations. These vibrations create sound waves which move through mediums such as air and water before reaching our ears.

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

During assemblies and programs we need to act responsibly by remembering to walk calmly and quietly into and out of the MPR. We must also remember to leave an aisle for others to walk down and we need to always be sitting on our bottoms.
Remember, this week we also continue to reflect on the Season of Non-Violence - Way of the Week 2 – Appreciation
And... Your Daily Challenge is to read those five things you wrote about yourself, to remind you of all the things you like about YOU!

Pledge: 

And today, we have __________________ 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

Also remember to make sure to come to school everyday and on time and maybe you can win a prize in our attendance raffle. 

Finally, please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school.  We want all of our plants to grow.
    
Remember, Safety First!
  • On your way to and from school remember to use all crosswalks, obey all traffic signals, and watch out for one another.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus.
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • Play safe on the playground and when the bell rings to line up, you freeze, wait for a teacher to blow his or her whistle, and walk to your line safely. We do not want anyone running as you could get hurt.
  • When you arrive at school in the morning, you are to sit at the lunch tables. All students are to remain sitting at the lunch tables until a teacher says that you may get up to line up.
  • Please remember to pick up after yourself after you eat breakfast, snack, and lunch.  Mr. Larios does not want to pick up after you!
  • At the end of the day, please leave the campus quickly and either walk home or wait in front of the office for you parents.  If your ride is not there, please wait at the front of the school patiently and quietly for your ride.
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.
