Good Morning Farr Falcons!

This is Mr. Herman and today is the 117th day of school, Wednesday, March 8th, 2017.  The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 81 degrees.  

Announcements:

Today is...

International Women's Day - a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

On This Day in History:

In 1950 VW bus, icon of the counterculture movement, goes into production - Volkswagen, maker of the Beetle automobile, expands its product offerings to include a microbus, which goes into production on this day in 1950.

Here's Your Science Fact for Today:

Our ears vibrate in a similar way to the original source of the vibration, allowing us to hear many different sounds.

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

Remember that this is The Season Of Non Violence, this week we concentrate on Way of the Week 4 – Kindness
And... your daily challenge is to do three kind things for others today. Help pick up trash at lunch or carry someone’s books. Ask your teacher if he/she needs help with anything. Help your mom or dad with chores at home.

We are also focusing on how to respect others; and today we talk about respecting others in the cafeteria. This means that we need to keep our places in line, we need to use quiet voices, we need to be polite, we need to be kind, and we need to resolve issues peacefully. When we do these things we feel better about ourselves and others.

Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955, said, "Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference."

Pledge: 

And today, we have _______________________ from Mr. Sandoval'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

Remember to make sure to come to school everyday and on time and maybe you can win a prize in our attendance raffle. 

Also 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.
