Yesterday, we discussed our four Farr Falcon expectations. Did you remember them? That's right, Stay Safe, Own our School, Act Responsibly, and Respect Everyone. Were you able to give your friends or teachers examples of each expectation? Well tomorrow and the next few days, we'll continue to review the Farr expectations, and remember Falcons soar, so soar today!

Les Brown, an American speaker and author, wrote, "Your smile will give you a positive countenance that will make people feel comfortable around you."

Pledge: 

And today, we have Alexis Martinez from Mr. Hernandez's 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

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.
