Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 79th day of school, Wednesday January 11th, 2017.  The forecast calls for cloudy skies and rain with a high of about 59 degrees.  


Today is...

Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day - a day just for mischievous fun.

On This Day in History:

On January 11, 1908, U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt declares the massive Grand Canyon in northwestern Arizona a national monument.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Ninety minutes of sweating can temporarily shrink the brain as much as one year of aging.

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

As we continue to review what good Falcons do we need to think about what it means to be safe. How do you stay safe at school? At school? In the community? Make sure your share how you do this with your teacher.

EE Cummings, American poet. writer, and essayist, said, "Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit."


And today, we have Mrs. Elias 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

Welcome back and remember to make sure to come to school everyday and on time and maybe you can win one of the fantastic prizes in our attendance raffle; 

Also please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school.  We want 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.
