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.

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.”

The Pink Ladies of Distinction is a group of FEES students who want to learn how to be the best they can be.  Cumberland County Schools (CCS) recognizes the character trait of Integrity during the month of November.  The CCS high school group called the Ladies of Cross Creek Early College worked together with the Pink Ladies to complete a session focusing on this trait.  Various activities were lead by the Ladies of Cross Creek Early College to inspire the Pink Ladies to want to improve their character. The Pink Ladies had to answer and provide information on how to individually show Integrity. Demonstration of their knowledge was shown by playing Integrity Bingo, Integrity Board Game, Trust Walk, and Integrity Beach Ball. The session was enjoyed by both groups.  Mrs. Hayes,  school counselor, says “This is not the first association between the two groups and we are looking forward to sharing in the mentoring experience and a continuous development of sisterhood.”Pink Ladies of Distinction November 2018 activity

One of the missions of the Ferguson-Easley Media Program is to promote the concept that reading is fundamental.  Students are encouraged to select books to read that increase academic achievement. Another concept that is promoted is that people actually buy books.  Two times a year the FEES Media Center offers students, staff, faculty, and families a chance to buy books at the Book Fairs.  Proceeds from the sales allow the media coordinator an opportunity to get more books into the FEES collection of fiction and nonfiction books in the media center.
