Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 70th day of school, Monday December 13th, 2016.  The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of about 68 degrees.  


Today is...

Christmas Sweater Day, so dig into your closet and bring out that colorful Sweater (sweater for those of you in the U.S.) that you were totally embarrassed to wear in public.

On This Day in History:

In 1577, Five ships under the command of Sir Francis Drake left Plymouth, England, to embark on Drake's circumnavigation of the globe. The journey took almost three years.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

10 percent of all human beings ever born are alive at this very moment.

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

Owning our school while riding on the bus means that we follow all directions including putting trash in the bus trash can, report problems to an adult, and never damaging the bus.

Charlie Chaplin, English comedic actor, said, "A day without laughter is a day wasted."


And today, we have Denise Gonzalez from Ms. Youngberg'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. 

Special Announcements

Make sure to come to school everyday and on time and maybe you can win one of the fantastic prizes in our attendance raffle; 

Also please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school.  We want 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.
