First Book logoBooks are educational resources that are critical to learning.  The First Book Organization, Disney, and  ABC11 Eyewitness News visited the Ferguson-Easley Media Center on March 13th to give each student two brand new books.  First Book has distributed millions of books to children in schools serving low-income communities.  Almost 600 of those books were given to students at Ferguson-Easley.  First Book works with Disney/ABC to provide these free resources during an annual event called the Magic of Storytelling.  Several ABC11 employees participated in the event.  Akilah Davis, ABC11 multimedia journalist, Monica Barnes, Community Engagement Director, Michelle Young, Community Engagement Producer, and Larry Chavis, News Photographer, made the event memorable by reading to our students, and talking with them, and encouraging them to read. Extra, Extra, READ All About It was the message that First Book, Disney and ABC11  broadcasted to the Ferguson-Easley student body. Channel 11 ABC News logo

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.
