Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
Set the example. Let children see you read.
Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.

Stomp, Chomp and Read!
Get ready for the biggest, loudest book fair ever! It’s the Scholastic DINO-MITE Book Fair: Stomp, Chomp, and Read! Super-size fun awaits when students are turned into reading raptors, bookceratops, and readasaurus rex bookivores ready to unleash their inner dino and enjoy a stomping, chomping, reading good time!
The PTO is sponsoring a reading challenge for the month of March leading up to our yearly Scholastic Book Fair. We are encouraging all DES students to read every day and log their reading minutes and book titles on the reading challenge calendar. The calendar log is due back on Tuesday, March 26th. PTO will select 2 winners (1 boy & 1 girl) with the highest reading minutes from each grade. Winners will be given a reading medal and a $10.00 Scholastic Gift Certificate which can be used to buy books at the Book Fair. Calendar logs will be going home with students or you can download one HERE.
