Two of our Falcons will be flying off into retirement at the end of the school year. Ruth Wiesmann has been our librarian for 12 years. She is looking forward to enjoying her retirement with family and friends.
Corma Sisk was a counselor for 4 years at Farney before serving as the assistant principal for the last 12 years. She will be spending time with her six grandchildren. We wish both of these amazing ladies a Happy Retirement!

THEME 2016-17

Our 2016-17 theme will be ADVENTURE AWAITS! Classrooms will become beautiful campgrounds waiting eagerly to be filled with our Farney Campers!


All items in the lost and found will be donated over the weekend. If you are looking for a missing jacket or lunch kit, please encourage your child to check the lost and found by Friday afternoon. Parents are welcomed to check in at the front desk and check the lost and found as well.

We are still looking for people with dogs who would like to participate in our BAK PAK reading program. There are training dates in the summer. Contact me and I will give you the information you need to participate in this excellent program.

Lunch Visitors

Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit during lunch. Any other visitors (grandparents, siblings, friends, etc.), must be accompanied by the parent or guardian or have a note giving them permission to eat with the child. In accordance to CFISD policy, school age children are not permitted to visit the campus at any time. Due to food and nutrition guidelines, you may bring lunch for your child only. For your convenience, there are several tables reserved for you to enjoy lunch with your child. Teachers will call the “Farney Five” at the end of lunch to signal when it is time for your child to say a quick goodbye and rejoin his/her class.

Reserved Parking

The reserved parking spaces at the front of the school are reserved for Farney staff members who frequently leave from and/or return to the building during the school day. Please do not park in these spaces before school, after school, or during the day. For your convenience, we ask all other staff members to use the back parking lot so that there are dozens of visitor spots available to you in the front of the school. We appreciate your cooperation.

Want To Know How to Help?


We have SO many opportunities for you to volunteer at Farney! We encourage you to get involved in any way you can. If you cannot come in to the school during the day, we have brown bag projects that can be sent home. A strong home/school partnership means success for our children. For more information go to www.farneypto.com.


Open or use your existing Target Visa Card and assign FARNEY ELEMENTARY as your school of choice. Target will make a donation based on your purchases! This is an easy way for friends and family to help our school.
