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 as you would like.

Parents and guardians, please donate $5.00 per child for the Reading Rocks fundraiser.

We are having a school dance for our students on Wednesday, October 16th from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Students will get some refreshments when they enter the dance. They will also have an opportunity to purchase additional snacks or beverages during the dance and no item will cost more than two dollars.

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

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.  Consequently, many 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;

Time for the 4th Graders to Read Time Magazine!  –Ms. Cauthen; and

All-Stars Shoot for the Goal — Coach Wood.

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

“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, a parent volunteer, 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.
