Each year Cumberland County Schools allows schools to participate in the Reading Rocks fundraiser.  This fundraiser supports purchases for books for the media center.

Friends of Ferguson-Easley Elementary School, please donate as much money as you would like.

Hopefully, parents and guardians will donate $5.00 per child for the Reading Rocks fundraiser.

We had a school dance for our students on Wednesday, October 16th from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Students got some refreshments and beverages after dancing for a while. They also had an opportunity to purchase additional snacks or beverages during the dance. Profit from the dance went to this fundraiser for purchasing books for the media center.

A permission form had to be submitted to the teacher for each student participating in the school dance.  Following the dance transportation had to be provided by the parent/guardian also. The permission form and donation needed to be turned in by Tuesday, October 15th in preparation for the October 16th Reading Rocks school dance.

The Committed Community Correlate for FEES was responsible for organizing this fundraiser.  They, along with other educators and volunteers, donated items and supervised the event.  Domino’s Pizza Bragg Boulevard donated pizza, the Public Works Commission donated bottled water, and families and friends donated funds.  We are especially grateful to the educators who volunteered to supervise the school dance.  We also want to thank the president of the FEES Parent Teacher Organization, Ms. M. Snells, along with Mrs. A. Williams, Mr. Z. Springer, and Mr. M. Elliott for their committed support.  The Reading Rocks school dance was successful.  Together we almost raised $500.00.

Let’s keep on keeping on.  Let’s encourage as many people as we can to donate funds for this important cause–raising money to purchase books.

Logo for Every minute counts promotion“Curriculum” and “Instruction” are two big words.  Their meanings are equally as large. For Cumberland County Schools curriculum and instruction deals with automatically using the North Carolina Standard Course of Study for each grade level. All public schools in the state of North Carolina adhere to these curriculum standards which are comprised of the Common Core State Standards for mathematics and literacy and Essential Standards for all other curriculum areas. 

To promote our school’s adherence to curriculum and instruction standards, we scheduled a FEES Parent Teacher Organization meeting called the “INCREDIBLE TITLE 1/ CURRICULUM NIGHT” for Tuesday, September 24th, starting at 4 pm and ending at 5:30 pm.  Important information was  shared during the event and there were prizes and incredible edibles too, even homework passes were available for FEES students in attendance. Over one hundred people participated in this event.

In preparation for the event several members of the FEES Family worked on Saturday, the 21st, to get the school ready.  The work effort was organized by Mr. Chapman, head custodian.  Mrs. McDowell, Mrs. McRae, Ms. Melvin, Ms. Cauthen, and Ms. McClellan from the staff along with Ms. Snells, president of the FEES Parent Teacher Organization, joined him. (Ms. Alfreda Williams, another parent volunteer, donated decorations for the media center.)

With curriculum and instruction each minute counts.

Some may remember Hurricane Florence, the disaster that hit North Carolina during 2018.  Now it is 2019 and it is Hurricane Dorian and others being thought about. One thing for sure, it is always good to be prepared for any upcoming disaster. 

Cumberland County is a military community and here are some of the quick reminders from the Military Times ( www.militaryonesource.mil/emergency-contacts-for-disasters-evacuations) to prepare all citizens from the wrath of disasters.

On Friday, October 25th, students had the opportunity to have fun at the Fall Festival. Five dollar arm bands included: 1 hot dog, popcorn & a drink. It also included unlimited tickets to games.  If you chose to not purchase an arm band then you had the chance to purchase tickets for twenty-five cents each for the games and activities that required a ticket/multiple tickets.  The Fall Festival took place in the FEES Pod from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM. It was followed by the “Trunk or Treat” event hosted by Kindah Temple, an organization committed to our school’s success.

Graphic from National Association of Educators about their Bully Free, It Starts With Me campaign

Bullying can happen everywhere – on school buses, in the cafeteria or restroom, in school hallways, via text or social media, and more. Help raise awareness about the prevalence of bullying and the many contexts in which it can occur by participating in National Bully Free Month.  Students can select from the Bully Free, It Starts With Me collection of books in the media center to read and to do research on being kind and not to bully.  They can also go to NCWISEOWL (elementary section) for additional research.
