This is a wonderful time to celebrate a brand new reading year.  It is our time to decide to resolve to do more reading starting immediately.  This reading resolution is purposeful.  It is necessary.

It is pertinent for each one of us to analyze our own situations and resolve to read more, and more, and more.  We can read Reference books, Fiction, Nonfiction, and Folklore.

Remember that in the FEES Media Center, We have books a PLENTY for the brand new year, Twenty-Twenty

Let us give Mrs. Huggins a high five! Her classroom project PROGRAMMING ENGINEERS was recently funded.  The resources for this project will arrive soon.  The Kano Computer Kit Touch  will allow our students a chance to see how to build and code a tablet.

Reading nonfiction/informational text is a necessary skill.  Reading about real current events, things that are seen in the news, things that are focusing on the world around us is what students are interested in reading yet many students are intimidated with this type of  text.  With TIME FOR KIDS magazines, students will find the text less threatening because it is shorter than a full book, has plenty of graphics, and great photos too. Reading this magazine will inspire students to read even more.

The Donors Choose Organization recently acknowledged that Ms. McClellan, the media coordinator for Ferguson-Easley Elementary School (FEES),  submitted a TIMES FOR KIDS project that has been fully funded.  In addition, Ms. Cauthen’s TIMES FOR KIDS grant for the 4th Graders to read this periodical was also funded.  Congratulations to Ms. Cauthen!  Consequently, many FEES students will get the opportunity to read this magazine and learn about current events and increase their confidence in reading nonfiction/informational texts.

It  is not to late to donate to help the other FEES teachers who have submitted projects to Donors Choose.  They are:

Creativity is a “Peace” of Mind –Mrs. Patrick;

“Boomtastic” We Are SuperStars! –Mrs. Hayes; and

All-Stars Shoot for the Goal — Coach Wood.

Go to https://www.donorschoose.org/  and donate to these projects.

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.
