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.

CCS’ READING ROCKS! 

Since 2004, the Cumberland County School 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 ALLSTARS!
