Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 114th day of school, Friday March 3rd, 2017.  The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 78 degrees.  

Announcements:

Today is...

I Want You to be Happy Day, a day to set aside selfish thoughts and to make someone feel special and happy.

On This Day in History:

In 1887, Anne Sullivan begins teaching six-year-old Helen Keller, who lost her sight and hearing after a severe illness at the age of 19 months. Under Sullivan’s tutelage, including her pioneering “touch teaching” techniques, the previously uncontrollable Keller flourished, eventually graduating from college and becoming an international lecturer and activist.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Your brain generates about 12-25 watts of electricity. This is enough to power a low wattage LED light.

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

Remember it is The Season of NonViolence, and we are focusing on respect, so try to respect yourself and others by choosing to not use any profanity or “put downs.”

This week we discussed what respect means in the classroom, the restroom, and at recess. In your classes discuss the importance of respect and how you can be respectful of others during those times.

Taylor Swift, American singer, said, "We don't need to share the same opinions as others, but we need to be respectful."

Pledge: 

And today, we have Priscilla Martinez from Mrs. Rodriguez'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

Also remember to make sure to come to school everyday and on time and maybe you can win a prize in our attendance raffle. 

Finally, please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school.  We want all of our plants to grow.
    
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 all of 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.
