As always, to recognize the contributions and historic achievements of Black Americans, each office and classroom at Farr Academy decorated its door. Shown here is a collage of the twelve doors, each reflecting the unique personalities and interests of each room’s occupants.
Today, we continued our annual tradition of a breakfast cooked to order by the Leadership Team (Jami, Tim, Kim, Ariel and Susan) for each member of the Farr Community. Available were pancakes (plain or with blueberries or chocolate chips) and breakfast sandwiches (any combination of eggs, cheese and bacon on a bagel). We are grateful for this opportunity to show those we work with every day how much they mean to us.
The school week leading up to Halloween is full of fun traditions at Farr. Of course, our first step is to decorate our doors! We then have a series of themes: this year, they were Crazy Hat/Crazy Hair Day; School Colors Day; Favorite Sports Team Day; and Pajama Day. For 2022, the Administrative Team were minions, and the Teaching Team all dressed as characters from The Office. Students were very creative in their choice of costumes.
School will be closed on Friday, November 11th in observation of Veterans Day.
This is STEM Week in Massachusetts. Our theme at Farr is “Women in STEM,” and we have many inter-disciplinary lessons and events happening, starting on Monday with a trip to the MIT Museum and culminating on Friday in a live Zoom chat with Peyton Anders, a rocket scientist who will share with students her experiences in higher education and Science as a person with ADHD. Other special hands-on activities include the rope pictured here, which students built entirely out of toilet paper and so far has successfully held up 115 pounds!
