Good Morning Farr Falcons!
This is Mr. Herman and today is the 113th day of school, Thursday March 2nd, 2017. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 77 degrees.
Old Stuff Day. Take some time on this made-up holiday to appreciate the beauty of all things old and vintage.
On This Day in History:
In 1904, Theodor Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss, the author and illustrator of such beloved children’s books as “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham,” is born in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Here's Your Science Fact for Today:
Only 5 minutes without oxygen can cause brain damage
At Farr Avenue School, Falcon's S.O.A.R...
Remember it is The Season of NonViolence, and we are focusing on respect, so try to respect yourself and others by choosing to not use any profanity or “put downs.”
At recess being respectful of others is also very important because when we respect others during games we have fewer problems. To do this, we need to be a good sport...invite others to play; handle winning and losing with grace and dignity, share equipment, and resolve issues peacefully.
Laurence Sterne, Irish novelist and an Anglican clergyman, wrote, "Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners."
And today, we have Ailani Hernandez from Mrs. Rodriguez's 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.
Don't forget to tell your parents that tonight is Family Literacy Night from 5:30 - 7:00 in honor of Dr Suess' birthday, so come hear a few stories and have fun with your teachers!
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!
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.
