FEES Has Book Fair
Published by Beverly McClellan on November 15, 2018
.....................................................................................................................................................................................

One of the missions of the Ferguson-Easley Media Program is to promote the concept that reading is fundamental.  Students are encouraged to select books to read that increase academic achievement. Another concept that is promoted is that people actually buy books.  Two times a year the FEES Media Center offers students, staff, faculty, and families a chance to buy books at the Book Fairs.  Proceeds from the sales allow the media coordinator an opportunity to get more books into the FEES collection of fiction and nonfiction books in the media center.

FEES Student Government Association Elections of Officers

All across America on November 6th United States citizens who were 18 years old and registered voters went to their polls and cast their votes.  At Ferguson-Easley Elementary School the High Expectations Correlate executed an activity to get our students involved.  We held an assembly for candidates for Student Government Association Officers.  The third, fourth and fifth graders participated in this assembly to hear speeches and see videos of the candidates.  Then on November 7th students in these three grades came to the media center where voting booths were set up for them to individually submit their votes electronically.  As they waited their turn to cast their votes the media coordinator gave them a  “Did You Know” quiz on North Carolina voter eligibility.

Guess who the first voters were at our school on November 7th.  The first voters were the students running for the office of president (see them pictured below).  Who do you think they voted for? 

Congratulations to President Laya, Vice President Brinton, and Secretary Israel!

Banner for Rocketry Day 2018

With students in various costumes and visitors (Representatives from Fayetteville Police, Florence Rogers Trust, Fayetteville Fire Department, Fayetteville State University, & Cumberland County Schools) joining our FEES Family to lift our “spirits” we blasted off with Rocketry Day.  In fact, the event continued our promotion of last week’s Red Ribbon programs to keep students standing firmly against drugs.  STEM Resource Teacher, Ms. Harris, worked with each grade level to prepare for today’s special event.

For the first nine weeks students focused on learning about force and motion.  In her lab they read two books, Motion by Andrea Rivera, and they read My Journey to the Stars by Scott Kelly.  In the media center they read one or more of the following: Force and Movement by Barbara Taylor; Forces and Motion Investigations by Karen Latchana Kenney; What Do You Know About Forces and Motion? by Tilda Monroe; and Zombies and Forces and Motion by Mark Weakland.  Students said that one of the funniest books in the media center is Horrible Harry Goes to the Moon by Suzy Kline.

The whole school worked diligently on exercises to help learn about the principles of force and motion.  This celebration occurred the morning of Halloween outside on the FEES campus.  Several different people blasted off their rockets and other items and without a doubt lifted the “spirits” of all who were viewing.

October is Kindness Awareness Month and Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin was kind enough to be the guest speaker at the third through fifth grade assembly for Ferguson-Easley young men.  The assembly was organized by Ms. Milsap, the social worker for Ferguson-Easley Elementary School (FEES). Encouragement and inspiration was the focus for Mayor Colvin who also happens to be an alum of the school.  He stressed to the young men that they must “Be All You Can Be” and that how they visualize themselves is an integral first step toward becoming the visualization.  The FEES young men listened to the mayor tell them about how he grew up and how he studied hard while in school because he felt there was not a minute to waste . The young men then questioned the mayor and social worker so that they could gain tips and recommendations on how to become the best person they could be.Mayor Mitch Colvin teaches with Social Worker, Ms. MilsapFayetteville Mayor and FEES Social Worker encourage students to aim for their goals
