Read to Ride program bicycles with helmets.The Knights of Pythias is dedicated to the cause of universal peace and is pledged to the promotion of understanding among men of good will as the surest means of attaining it. 

The local lodge sponsors the Read to Ride program.  They do this because they want to encourage students to develop the love of reading at an early age. At our school students in the first and second grades can participate in this program by checking out books, reading them, and taking Accelerated Reading (AR) quizzes.  The Read to Ride program encourages students to read and to be more active. This program supports reducing childhood obesity while promoting literacy. The girl and boy who have the highest AR points will be given a brand new bicycle at the schools’ final awards program.  Each winner also receives a helmet with their bicycle.

In addition on May 22nd, the Fayetteville Police sent representatives to our school to teach students about safety and bicycling.  Each student who participated in the program received a bag and a helmet.  Fayetteville Police provide bicycle helmets for elementary school students.

The Democratic Women of Cumberland County’s mission is to help find and recruit women to run for office, and to support the efforts of the Democratic Party both locally and nationally. One of their community service projects this year was to collect new and slightly worn books so that they could donate to public schools’ media centers.  Ferguson-Easley Elementary’s media center on May 14th was fortunate to receive 200 books to support collection development from the Democratic Women of Cumberland County.  Ms Devon Newton, president, along with other members visited the school’s media center and helped to start the cataloging process. Both fiction and nonfiction books were donated and they ranged from Prekindergarten to 6th grade reading levels. 

Members of the Democratic Women of Cumberland County gather to give the FEES media coordinator 200 books.
