Start the new year with new books!

The Ferguson-Easley Elementary School media assistants assist the media coordinator year round in keeping our media center organized using the Dewey Classification System.  This year they also  serve as our Battle of the Books Team. In the photo below they are sharing a big smile with you in front of their “Put a Great Book in Your Hands” bulletin board on Smart Street.  Can you guess whose hands are used as models for the cutouts displayed on the bulletin board?  Our Media Assistants will have plenty of brand new books displayed for you in 2019.  So follow their command and put a great book in your hands.

Elementary EveryMinute CountsThe North Carolina Department of Public Instruction recently recognized 19 Cumberland County Schools for achieving Exemplar status as PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention & Support) Schools.

The North Carolina Read to Achieve program is a part of the General Assembly’s Excellent Public Schools Act (pages 38-45), which became law in July of 2012, and applies to all North Carolina K-3 students. 

The goal of this legislation is for all students to become proficient readers by the end of third grade. Read to Achieve outlines reading requirements for elementary students and describes what schools will be doing to assist children in reaching the proficiency goal. 

Cumberland County Schools Textbook Department distributed the “Blast Off With A Good Book” bookmark that was provided by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to each Ferguson-Easley student in kindergarten, first, second, and third grade.  Information on the bookmark recommends reading 20 minutes daily, writing stories and letters about what was read, and talking about what was read.

Graphic of bicycle on the brainFerguson-Easley Elementary School has been afforded an opportunity for thirty Kindergarten through Second Grade students to receive free bicycles.  All a student had to do was put “their mind on a bike” and keep their mind on academics and displaying great behavior.  The results of data from Class Dojo was used to select the names of students who qualified for entering the competition for one of the free bicycles. Class Dojo is a digital classroom management tool designed to help teachers improve student behavior and communicate more effectively with parents.  Ms. Milsap, Mrs. Huggins, Mrs. Hayes, and Ms. McClellan assisted in the process of identifying students. The Fayetteville Fire Department was very instrumental in coordinating this community service initiative.  The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), also a sponsor,  assisted with conducting safety training for bicyclists and their parents.  The safety lessons were led by Melode and Gregory Dickerson, managers for the Hope Mills Community Emergency Response Team.

Our school is very grateful to Academy Sports for donating the thirty bikes.  That’s right a free “B”ike for earning recognition for your “B” ehavior. 

Safety lessons were held during the bike giveaway for student and parent.

Students in the 1st, 4th and 5th grades joined other Cumberland County Schools students in a writing and art project to design holiday greeting cards.  Ms. Milsap, school social worker says, “Ninety-one cards were created at Ferguson-Easley Elementary.”  They were given to Mr. Tony Brown along with the Chisholm Foundation for Youth and Community Transformation, a 501C3 nonprofit organization.  This organization then distributed the student holiday artwork to citizens in the community participating in the “Adopt A Grandparent” program.

PHI BETA LAMBDA is the national organization for all students in post-secondary schools and colleges enrolled in programs designed to develop vocational and professional competencies and who accept the purpose of Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) and subscribe to its creed. The purpose of the organization is to:

“…provide opportunities for post-secondary and college students to develop vocational competencies for business and office occupations and business teacher education.”

This year’s theme is “Create. Lead. Inspire” and North Carolina PBL chapters throughout the state will showcase this special theme through programs and activities at the local, state, and national levels.  The Fayetteville State University chapter, Alpha Kappa, collaborated with the FEES social worker, Ms. Milsap, to “create, lead and inspire” our students through toys.  Chapter members dedicated time to donate these gifts to our students just in time for the holidays. Ms. Milsap says, “There are future projects including a clothing drive and a mentoring program that are scheduled for later in the school year.”
