Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 102nd day of school, Monday February 13th, 2017.  The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 71 degrees.  

Announcements:

Today is...

Clean Out Your Computer Day - Have you been putting off cleaning out those old files on your desktop? Well, today is the day you should do it, because it is Clean Out Your Computer Day.

On This Day in History:

In 1633, Italian philosopher, astronomer and mathematician Galileo Galilei arrives in Rome to face charges of heresy for advocating Copernican theory, which holds that the Earth revolves around the Sun.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

After eating too much, your hearing is less sharp

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

This week we will be concentrating on Acting Responsibly during assemblies and programs. Please start thinking about what is means to be responsible during these events.
We also continue to reflect on the Season of Non-Violence and this week's Way of the Week 2 – is Appreciation

Louise Hay says, “Praise yourself as much as you can....the love in our lives begins with us....loving yourself will help heal this planet.” Appreciation means to admire or be grateful for something. There are many different types of appreciation. Peace begins with us, so today we focus on appreciating ourselves. Every one of us is special in our own way and has something different to contribute to making our world a better place.

Daily Challenge: Write down 5 things that you appreciate about yourself. Share with someone what you have written. Read it every day to remind yourself of all the things you like about YOU!

Pledge: 

And today, we have Mr. Rodriguez 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 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.
