Reading is my SuperPower

Our mission is to create a joy for reading, support school wide literacy initiatives and raise funds for our school.  Students will have the opportunity to earn prizes for their efforts individually and as a classroom.  Our hope is that as your child participates in the Read-A-Thon, they will grow in their confidence and love for reading.


Literacy Night:

We will be holding a free Literacy Night event on November 8th from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Come and enjoy a book read by JES staff, and rack up your reading minutes. The Chaska Library will have information and resources available to help keep your reader involved with the local library. There will be games and fun for the whole family! 

Book Swap:

Do you have extra books lying around? Would you like to trade your books in for a new favorite? There is a box in the main entrance and front hallway to drop off your used books to donate to our book swap. We are accepting children’s books appropriate for K-5 students until November 5th. Stop by our "Reading is My Super Power" Literacy Night to grab a few ‘new’ books for your family!
