Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mrs. Elias and today is the 111th day of school, Tuesday February 28th, 2017.  The forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high of about 61 degrees.  


Today is...

Public Sleeping Day Catch a few winks or take a long nap in public to celebrate Public Sleeping Day

On This Day in History:

On this day in 1953, Cambridge University scientists James D. Watson and Frances H.C. Crick announce that they have determined the double-helix structure of DNA, the molecule containing human genes.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Red blood cells are created inside the marrow of your bones, they serve the important role of carrying blood around your body.

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

Remember we have been talking about The Season of NonViolence, and focusing on respect, so try to respect yourself and others by choosing not to use any profanity or “put downs.”

This week we also talk about Respect in the classroom, the restrooms, and at recess. Remember that respect is the way you choose to treat others and in the classroom we need to try to raise our hands before we speak, wait patiently for others, encourage others, participate appropriately, and resolve issues peacefully.

Bryant H. McGill, American author, wrote, "One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say."


And today, we have Mrs. Bribiesca 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 make sure to come to school everyday and on time and maybe you can win a prize in our attendance raffle. 

And speaking of attendance, I want to give a shout out to Ms. Sandoval's class for having 100% attendance last week.

Finally, please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school.  We want all of 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 all of 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.
