Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 110th day of school, Friday February 27th, 2017.  The forecast calls for cloudy skies and rain with a high of about 56 degrees.  

Announcements:

Today is...

No Brainer Day. It is believed that the holiday was created by Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith in the United States as a way to remind people that most things are simple and that many problems we encounter daily have obvious and easy solutions.

On This Day in History:

In 1827, a group of masked and costumed students dance through the streets of New Orleans, Louisiana, marking the beginning of the city’s famous Mardi Gras celebrations.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

It might only take you a few minutes to finish a meal but it takes your body around 12 hours before it has completely digested the food.

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

This week we continue with The Season of NonViolence, Way of the Week - week 3 - Respect
Gandhi taught, “Language is an exact reflection of the character and growth of its speakers.” This means that the words you choose when talking to others affects how others think about you. The words you choose also affect how you make others feel. Hurtful words bring about hurtful feelings. Kind and respectful words bring with them feelings of kindness and an atmosphere of respect.
Daily Challenge: Today, contribute to creating a peaceful community by using respectful language. Respect yourself and others by choosing not to use any profanity or “put downs.”

Pledge: 

And today, we have __________________ 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

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.
