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

Today we talk about being respectful in our homes. To be respectful at home, we must always try to listen to our parents, help around the house, and make an effort to get along with our siblings and other family members. When we are respectful at home, we feel good, our parents feel good, and home is a happier place to be.

Aretha Franklin, an American singer, songwriter and musician, said, "We all require and want respect, man or woman, black or white. It's our basic human right."

Pledge: 

And today, we have Abraham Arreguin from Mrs. Amador'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.
