Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mrs. Elias and today is the 99th day of school, Tuesday February 8, 2017.  The forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high of about 72 degrees.  


Today is...

Laugh and Get Rich Day. A day for enriching your life with happiness.

On This Day in History:

On this day in 1943, Japanese troops evacuate Guadalcanal, leaving the island in Allied possession after a prolonged campaign. The American victory paved the way for other Allied wins in the Solomon Islands during the second world war.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Did you that if a star passes too close to a black hole, it can be torn apart? That's your science fact for today.

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

As we continue talking about being responsible in the hallways and on sidewalks, we need to think about respecting our school as well. This means that we need to walk around landscaped areas at school and pick up our trash.

We also began Way of the Week, week 1 – We're talking about Integrity

Remember your Daily Challenge: When faced with a choice today, ask yourself, “What is the right thing to do?” Remember we do the right thing, even if no one is watching. That is integrity.


And today, we have Angel Medina and Mareli Martinez Ortiz from Mrs. Ramos' 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

This Friday night is the PTA's Valentines Dance from 5:00-8:00 in the MPR.  We would love to see you all there!

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.
