Welcome to the Jessie Whaley Maxwell ElementarySchool Website!
Check out our 4th Graders and our Math Fellow, Ms. Desiree!
Have you seen the library lately? Maxwell’s library is changing to make it easier for our Dolphin Family to get great books! Help Maxwell’s 532 kids get more books by submitting an entry to Scholastic Reading Club announces James Patterson’s $1.5 Million Pledge to Libraries. Look for pictures here too!
Welcome Dolphin Family!
All parents and students are to come in through the front entrance before heading to playground. All ECE students may be dropped off at 8:10 with paras, but if parents want to play with their children before hand they can in the ECE playground as there is no coverage on the ECE playground. This change is to help keep all of our Dolphins safe!

1st Ever- Jessie Whaley Maxwell and Book Trust’s Read-a-Thon
May 11-15, 2015
What’s a Read-A-Thon?
Kids commit to reading a certain amount of minutes over the
course of a week and gather pledges of support from parents,
family, friends, neighbors, and the community. For example,
a third-grader may challenge herself by pledging to read 30
minutes a night for the week to reach her goal of completing
150 minutes of reading by the end of the week. Her neighbor
may decide to contribute $1 for every minute she reads.
Similarly, her parents may decide to contribute 10 cents per
minute. Both contributions serve to encourage the student to
achieve her reading goals.
Grade Level Goals- Read Every Night!
ECE reading 20 minutes
K/1 reading 30 minutes
2/3 reading 40 minutes
4/5th reading for 45 minutes
We are encouraging classes to compete for most minutes read. As a school we’ll be working towards our school goal for number of minutes read! So… read, baby, read!!!
