Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 127th day of school, Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017.  The forecast calls for cloudy skies with a chance of rain and a high of about 61 degrees.  


Today is...

International Goof Off Day - The unofficial holiday encourages people to have fun and Goof around a little.

On This Day in History:

In an effort to raise funds to pay off debts and defend the vast new American territories won from the French in the Seven Years’ War (1756-1763), the British government passes the Stamp Act on this day in 1765.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

The ocean is 12,080 deep on average. That's about eight Empire State Buildings, stacked one on top of the other.

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

This is the last week in the Season Of Non Violence and this week we focus on:
Way of the Week 6 - Believing

...And your daily challenge is to tell someone, “You can do it! Don’t give up!”

Remember we are also talking about respect during assemblies and programs and respect during an assembly or a program means that we enter quietly and responsibly and we sit down quickly without disturbing the people around us during the show or presentation.

Matt Cameron, an American musician who serves as the drummer for the American rock bands Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, said, "Live life to the fullest, and focus on the positive."


And today, we have Jesus Bejarano from Mrs. Rosales' 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

And...remember to always stay safe on the playground, around our school, and 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.
