Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 100th day of school, Thursday February 9th, 2017.  The forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high of about 75 degrees.  


Today is...

Toothache Day - Today is a good day to remind us that toothaches are never fun and that maintaining oral health is very important to keep painful toothaches away.

On This Day in History:

In 1964, America meets the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show, a TV show from the mid 60s.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

The solar system is around 4.6 billion years old and scientists estimate that it will probably last another 5000 million years.

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

Responsibility in the hallways and on the sidewalks means that we must respect others by not running and staying quiet, so that we do not disturb classes.

Remember we have also begun Way of the Week, week 1 – Integrity

Your Challenge is: When faced with a choice today, ask yourself, “What is the right thing to do?” Remember we do the right thing, even if no one is watching. That is integrity.


And today, we have _____________________ from Mrs. Ramos' 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

This Friday night is the PTA's Valentines Dance from 5:00-8:00 in the MPR.  We would love to see you all there!

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.
