Is Halloween, a day to dress up, to be creative, to trick or treat, and to just plain have fun, so have fun!

On This Day in History:

In 1776, in his first speech before British Parliament since the leaders of the American Revolution came together to sign of the Declaration of Independence that summer, King George III acknowledges that all was not going well for Britain in the war with the United States.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today

Even traveling at the speed of light it would take 2 million years to reach the nearest large galaxy, Andromeda.

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

This week we will be talking about Owning Our School, especially our classrooms and the restrooms. Remember that when we take pride in where we learn, we take pride in what we do, and will do better in school.

Abigail Adams, wife of President John Adams, said,"Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and diligence."

Pledge: 

Today, we have ___________ from Mr. Dwyer's class to lead us 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 

Please remember to come to school everyday and on time; and maybe you can win one of the great prizes in our attendance raffle!     

And...Today is Halloween! Have a great day and we'll see you at the Halloween Parade.

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.
