Message from Dr. Reilly

Tuesday, April 13th is the first day of our final grading period. We will welcome many Connect students back to campus for F2F learning. We are also gearing up for several big events like Boosterthon Dance Fit, Field Day, 5th-grade day, and End Of Year parties. Although these events might look a little different this year, we will be packing in the FUN #funatFarney! Please watch social media and teacher emails for updates and information regarding these events.

EARLY REGISTRATION for Pre-K and Kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year is NOW OPEN! We greatly appreciate it when parents register in the spring as it allows our district to more accurately allocate staffing for our campus. Please call our registrar, Lori Thompson, at 281-373-2869 if you have any questions about this process! We can't wait to meet our future Falcons!


All of our future Falcons will receive a special spirit item in the mail once their registration is finalized, so please register your child ASAP!

Farney Field Day-May 14th

Farney Field Day is happening! Only face-to-face students will be able to participate on campus, as this is an extension of what is taught in P.E. However, our connect students will be "Among Us" and will have an opportunity to earn points for their homeroom by participating in events at home. More details will be coming soon! See the field day form below for shirt details and order TODAY! https://farney21.itemorder.com/ Unfortunately, we are unable to allow spectators at this event.
