March and April are dynamic months for celebrating reading.  Many Cumberland County Association of Educators (CCAE) and other members of the community gathered downtown Fayetteville to celebrate Dr.  Seuss’ birthday. The month of March continued to be exciting with students researching women for Women’s History Month.  FEES students and parents also united to share nutritious breakfasts during National School Breakfast Week and also to read new books about nutrition.  B. McClellan, the media coordinator, also was happy to represent CCAE as a delegate to the North Carolina Association of Educators  Conference held in Raleigh.

Reading continues to be the focus in the media center during the BOOK FAIR scheduled for April  12-26, 2018. 

Our Book Fair also helps us to Celebrate National School Library Month.

Reading is also promoted by participating in National Poetry Month during April.  Our students read books in the 800s section of the General Collection of the media center where the majority of the poetry books are found. They also wrote poems and shared them too.



Electronic Books (EBooks) continue to be recommended reading.  Go to the FEES Destiny Catalog ( Destiny ) and narrow your search to the material type designated for  Ebooks.  If your  Ebook requires a  username and password, use one of the following to gain access: 
fees  (username)  123  (password); ees  (username)   fees (password).  
For the Captstone collection, first click on the title, then click on the “Read the Captstone Interactive eBook Now!”

Faculty and staff are encouraged to read  Steven L. Layne’s Igniting A Passion for Reading; and Donalyn Miller’s The Book Whisperer.  These books attempt to awaken the inner reader in students and to recommend strategies for building lifetime readers.  Both of these resources are a part of our Professional Collection. 

Numerous video cassette recordings are available in our Professional Collection for viewing on books that have been converted to videos.  Reserve your tape and your equipment and introduce your students to someone worth celebrating.

Also, remember to use the periodical, Cricket, to entice students to read a realm of imaginative literature.
