Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mrs. Elias and today is the 139th day of school, Friday, April 7th, 2017.  The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 75 degrees.  


Today is...

Walk to Work Day - Years of medical research has shown that walking is one of the best ways to stay healthy and keep your body in shape. So, once a year, why not take the doctor’s advice and walk to work on Walk to Work Day?

On This Day in History:

in 1940 Booker T. Washington, an education pioneer, becomes the first African American to appear on a postage stamp.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Babies have around 100 more bones than adults

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

On our last day before vacation, we will focus on respecting everyone. Remember that when you respect others they will respect you, so treat others with respect.

Bill Watterson, an American cartoonist and the author of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, said, "Things are never quite as scary when you've got a best friend."


And today, we have _______________________ from Mrs. Johnson'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

Remember, that tonight from 4-9 pm at Panda Express on Mission and Quince Farr's PTA will be having a fundraiser and if you mention Farr School we'll get a percentage of the money you spend and this will go toward special events and fun opportunities for you, so make your way over to Panda Express Friday night for dinner.

And...remember to please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school because we want our plants to grow!

Also remember to always stay safe on the playground, around our school, on your way to and from school.

Have great Spring Break, enjoy your family and friends, be safe, and we'll see you bright and early Monday, April 24th!
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.
