Children’s Book Week is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading. Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country.  At our school we will continue celebrating in this brand new year of 2020 as we host our March book fair the week of the 23rd.

Twice a school year the Book Fair is held to encourage reading and to financially support the Ferguson-Easley Elementary School Media Center. Usually it is held during American Education Week (November) and National School Library Month (April).

2019 marked the 100th anniversary of Children’s Book Week. At our school the celebration takes place all school year long with a dedicated week of celebration last fall, November 4-10!

Ms. Carrianne Beverly McClellan serves as the FEES media coordinator.


NCWiseOWL Is A Great Resource For Our Students

NC Online Windows for Learning has been providing online resources for our school since 1999.  The mission of NCWiseOWL is to ensure that all of our students have access to a collection of online resources for use in research projects, homework assignments, and just learning in general.

NCWiseOWL has two major strengths as an educational resource:


  • Quality: Information on the Internet at-large is often unreliable and inappropriate for use in the K-12 education field.  NCWiseOWL’s databases provide access to articles from thousands of magazines, from online encyclopedias and reference sources, and from a variety of other sources that are more appropriate for our students.
  • Safety: The World Wide Web was never intended as a K-12 educational tool.  Using NCWiseOWL for online research places students in a safer, advertising-free environment with age-appropriate information and tools that assist students with the research process.

Cumberland County Schools’ READING ROCKS! 

Graphic of Reading Rocks

Since 2004, the Cumberland County Schools system, in partnership with the Cumberland County Education Foundation, has been celebrating literacy and the love of reading through the READING ROCKS! Campaign.   Each year, thousands of students, parents, educators, administrators and community members participate in this special event.  The READING ROCKS! Campaign has been very successful in previous years and each year we set our participant goal higher.  We hope to exceed funds raised in prior years, so we can continue to provide books and learning tools to our students.

We are grateful for your generosity and your willingness to be of help as we strive to better serve the children of Cumberland County. Schools will receive 100 percent of monies raised at each site.

Be sure to remember to make your tax deductible donations to Ferguson-Easley Elementary School for the media program.  



These online resources are complimentary for the Ferguson-Easley ALL-STARS!
