Media Center News:

  • Media Coordinator of the Year: SFCMS is proud to announce that our own Mary Potter has been named Cumberland County Schools’ 2017-2018 Media Coordinator of the Year!
  • New Makerspace: Did you know that SFCMS now has a makerspace? Students are encouraged to explore and create during Wednesdays’ Open Media Center afternoons. The space currently includes Spheros and iPads, littleBits, a green screen, origami, and duct tape supplies. However, thanks to the support of the community at our first-ever Barnes & Noble in-store book fair, we raised almost $400 to grow our makerspace to include additional building and coding resources. Make and create in the makerspace!
  • Reading Rocks 2016: Many thanks to everyone who donated to Reading Rocks during the 2016-2017 school year. SFCMS raised $2,831.09, more than twice the previous year’s total. Way to go, Knights! Reading Rocks is an annual county-wide literacy and fundraising campaign. One hundred percent of the donations made to the SFCMS Reading Rocks campaign stay at our school and are only spent on resources for student use, such as library books and devices. The campaign was scheduled to culminate in a literacy walk and block party in downtown Fayetteville on Saturday, October 15, 2016. Unfortunately, the walk had to be canceled due to the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Instead, we celebrated at our school with a day devoted to reading and literacy.
