Dear Students and Parents:
Welcome to Jean Farb Middle School! If you are looking for a small neighborhood middle school with a culture of college readiness for all students come to Farb Middle School; an AVID National Demonstration School! Why not bring your whole family and take a tour of our campus. Principal Courtney Rizzo would be honored to meet you and your family and tell you about the exciting programs we have to offer! Safety and high academic achievement are our first priorities. Teachers and staff provide a family atmosphere where everyone belongs and individual strengths are challenged.

    Here is this week's Sunday Update: 
    I would first like to give a special thank you to the 6th grade teachers and students for a smooth transition last week.  Looking forward to this week, Tuesday is the last day to turn in all of your fundraising orders and money.  There will be a table in front of room 56 before school.  Also on Tuesday is the annual Kids News Day.  Look for some of our students on the corner of La Cuenta and Tierrasanta Blvd before school selling a special edition of the San Diego Union Tribune Newspaper for $1. All proceeds go to children's hospital.  We are hoping to sell at least 100 newspapers!  Finally, students will be coming home with their school pictures.  If you would like your student to retake their picture or if they were absent on picture day,  then they can get their picture taken on Picture make up day, October 29.  Looking ahead to next week, it is ASB spirit week.  Each day will have a special theme and students and staff are encouraged to dress accordingly.  Students are also allowed to dress for Halloween, as long as their costume is appropriate for school.  Please no masks, or any play weapons of any kind.  Thank you!
