Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 108th day of school, Wednesday February 23rd, 2017.  The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 57 degrees.  


Today is...

Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. Show your appreciation for your furry canine friends by spoiling them with their favorite dog biscuits.

On This Day in History:

The U.S. flag was raised on Iwo Jima - During the bloody Battle for Iwo Jima, U.S. Marines from the 3rd Platoon, E Company, 2nd Battalion, 28th Regiment of the 5th Division take the crest of Mount Suribachi, the island’s highest peak and most strategic position, and raise the U.S. flag. Marine photographer Louis Lowery was with them and recorded the event taking an iconic picture forever known in American history.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Onions might taste good but they can be painful to chop. A gas is released when you cut onions that irritates your eyes. The tears you produce while this happens are your body’s way of washing the gas from your eyes.

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

In the community we need to show that we are responsible by keeping the community beautiful by; putting trash in trashcans, walking around landscaped areas, and reporting any acts of vandalism to our parents or a trusted adult. When we do these things, we are responsible and show that we have pride in our community.

Henry Ford, founder of the Ford Motor Company, said, "My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me"

And today, we have __________________ 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.
