At DES we view reading as the most important gift we can teach a child. A child who reads well and understands what they are reading will improve academically and socially. There are many opportunities in school for your child to read including guided reading, ERIC time and Read, Write, Inc. In addition we are giving your children the opportunity to change their reading book daily, and receive a library book weekly from our fantastic school library.

You can help your child at home by reading their school reading book with them daily, making sure you support them by asking questions and by giving them your full attention. We want to encourage parents to read a bedtime story to your children so you can model how to read. It is a lovely way to end a busy day!
