Fayetteville – Hundreds of families explored the halls of E.E. Smith High School Saturday morning to learn about the Choice Programs in Cumberland County Schools (CCS). The morning kicked off with a parent meeting for Albritton Middle School eighth-graders. Then, principals, students, and academy directors provided information about all Choice Programs in CCS. Families were able to ask questions and apply to their top choices at the Choice Online Stations located on site.  

“From world language immersion programs beginning at the elementary school level to technology and robotics offerings, families were able to explore elementary, middle and high school options available through Cumberland County Schools,” said Melody Chalmers, CCS’ assistant superintendent of District Transformation & Strategic Initiatives. “We’re glad that so many of our families joined us for our Choice Fair. As a system of choice, we have a variety of programs to meet the academic interests of our students.”

FEES World Read Aloud Day

World Read Aloud Day (WRAD) is a celebration to advocate for literacy as a human right.  Reading and writing are ways that we are empowered to communicate with each other.  For 10 years people around the globe have read out loud on February 1 honoring their commitment to WRAD.  Ferguson-Easley Media Assistants led our school’s efforts to join this global celebration.  They were able to read a very special book to the entire school by using our intercom to broadcast from the media center.  Ms. McClellan, Ferguson-Easley Elementary Media Coordinator, selected Martin’s Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,  by Doreen Rappaport for them to read out loud and Mrs. McLeod, assistant principal, assisted with the broadcast.  For more information about this event please visit their school’s site at Ferguson-Easley Elementary School
