Deviled eggs day so boil some eggs, and make some delicious deviled eggs because it is Deviled Eggs Day. It is also Dia de los Muertos the day we remember our loved ones who have passed on.

Owing our school and especially our classroom also means keeping our desks organized and keeping school property at school.

Alan Wilson Watts was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, said, "The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance."

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 remember to come to school everyday and on time; and maybe you can win one of the great prizes in our attendance raffle!     

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.
