Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is day the twenty-first day of school, Monday, September 26th, 2016.  The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 100 degrees, so make sure you drink a lot of water.  


Today is...

Love Note Day. This holiday encourages you to write and send notes full of love to that special person in your life.

On This Day in History

For the first time in U.S. history, a debate between major party presidential candidates is shown on television.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today

Armadillos, opossums, and sloth's spend about 80% of their lives sleeping.

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

Today we talk about staying safe on the bus. Staying Safe on the bus is very important. You need to remember to sit and face front, keep hands feet and objects to yourself and inside the bus, keep your voices down, stay seated until the bus stops, and keep food in your backpack as there is no eating on the bus.

Maya Angelou, famous American poet and author, wrote, "Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud."


Here's 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!  On that note, we have two classes from last week that achieved 100% attendance for the week, and they are...Mrs. Rodriguez's class and Mrs. Sandoval's class.  Well done boys and girls!  Also remember that when you are recycling, you should put your bottles in the barrels in front of room 36.  All the money made will go to charities.

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.
