Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 128th day of school, Thursday, March 23rd, 2017.  The forecast calls for partly sunny skies with some lingering rain showers and a high of about 62 degrees.  


Today is...

OK Day - OK, also spelled as okay, O.K., or ok, is possibly the most used word around the world, and March 23 is OK Day, a day to recognize this popular word.

On This Day in History:

in 1839, the initials “O.K.” are first published in The Boston Morning Post. Meant as an abbreviation for “oll korrect,” a popular slang misspelling of “all correct” at the time, OK steadily made its way into the everyday speech of Americans.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

There are 62,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body – laid end to end they would circle the earth 2.5 times

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

This is the last week in the Season Of Non Violence and this week we focus on:
Way of the Week 6 - Believing

...And your daily challenge is to tell someone, “You can do it! Don’t give up!”

This week, we also also talking about respect during assemblies and programs which also means that we listen attentively to the speaker or speakers, that we do not whistle but applaud when we like something, and that we remove hats or hoodies when in attendance. These acts show the people on the stage that you are ready to listen and enjoy the show.

Lyndon B. Johnson, an American politician who served as the 36th President of the United States from 1963 to 1969, said, "Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose."


And today, we have Tania Felipe from Mrs. Rosales' 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 please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school because we want our plants to grow!

And...remember to always stay safe on the playground, around our school, and on your way to and from school.
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.
