Reading is the basic building block of all learning.
Through books children can explore new ideas.
Reading provides opportunities for children to flex their critical thinking skills, develop problem-solving techniques and increase their vocabulary and knowledge of the world.  Reading opens doors to our children’s success in the future.  In a word, reading is important.
The more children read the better they become at reading.  The more they like what they read the more they view reading as a pleasurable and entertaining activity.  It is our goal to both encourage our students to READ EVERY DAY and give them opportunities to learn.


Are you saving your coke points? Please bring them in to the office for Jamerson...we have already received such great things for them!


Don't forget to send in your Box Tops to your child's teacher, or the front office. Your donations means FREE MONEY FOR JAMERSON!
