Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mrs. Elias and today is the 171st day of school, Wednesday, June 7th, 2017. The forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high of about 76 degrees.  


Today is...

VCR Day - Rewind to the past and celebrate the humble Video Cassette Recorder (VCR) on June 7, VCR Day.

On This Day in History:

in 1913, Hudson Stuck, an Alaskan missionary, leads the first successful ascent of Mt. McKinley, the highest point on the American continent at 20,320 feet.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Half your body’s red blood cells are replaced every seven days. Where are they going?

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

This week I also said that we would be reviewing acting responsibly. Being responsible is important in everything we do because if you are responsible it shows that people can trust you to you get the job done. Can you get the job done? Are you responsible?
Marcus Garvey, a proponent of black nationalism in Jamaica and especially the United States, said, "With confidence, you have won before you have started.


And today I will be leading 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

Remember to please make sure that while you are in the office or library you are quiet and respectful of students taking MAP tests and SBAC exams.

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