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

Remember that this week we have been speaking about respect in the community, on the bus, and at home. Why do we need to be respectful to others in these places? And...how can you be respectful in these places? Discuss these questions with you teachers.

Nathaniel Hawthorne, an American novelist, Dark Romantic, and short story writer, wrote, "Every individual has a place to fill in the world and is important in some respect whether he chooses to be so or not."

Pledge: 

And today, we have Victoria Herrera from Mrs. Amador'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

Don't forget that tonight the PTA will have Family Movie Night from 7 - 9 pm on the grass and they will be showing Moana, so make sure to tell your parents and come enjoy a movie with your family and friends tonight!

And...Monday is Major League Baseball's Opening Day, so in honor of our national pastime and our Padres, make sure to wear your Padres attire or your favorite team's jersey or cap.

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

Finally, 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.
