Drop Everything And Read (D.E.A.R.)

En honor al natalicio de nuestra querida autora Beverly Cleary, toda nuestra escuela tomó parte de la actividad conocida como D.E.A.R (Deja Todo y Lee) el lunes 13 de abril. En cualquier sitio que los estudiantes se encontraban en ese momento, ellos descontinuaron lo que hacían y empezaron a leer un libro, una revista, una camiseta o cualquier cosa dónde ellos encontraban palabras escritas.

Disfrute de las fotos tomadas ese día divertido aquí, y muchas más en la galería de fotos del Lenguaje Dual.

In honor of beloved author Beverly Cleary’s birthday, our entire building took part in
Drop Everything And Read (D.E.A.R.) Day on  Monday, April 13th.  Wherever the students were at that time, they stopped everything else and read a book, a magazine, a t-shirt or anything else that they could find words on.
Enjoy some photos from that fun day here, and many more in the School of Dual Language Photo Gallery.
