We continue talking about our SOAR acronym; and today we focus on staying safe. Staying safe means that we do this at school and in our community, so during our two week vacation think about ways you can stay safe.

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

How many of you like Chinese food? Well, this Friday night from 4-9 pm at Panda Express on Mission and Quince Farr's spectacular PTA will be having a fundraiser and if you mention Farr School we'll get a percentage of the money you spend and this will go toward special events and fun opportunities for you.

Remember to please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school because we want our plants to grow!

Also 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.
