DEAR Day at WDE

Feb 28 2019

WDE recently celebrated DEAR Day. DEAR stands for “Drop Everything and Read.” It is a time to celebrate student literacy and encourages students and adults to make reading a priority in their lives. This month, first grade students continued the spirit of DEAR Day and made daily reading an important part of their regular schedule. To add to this excitement, students have seen their hard work pay off by finally reaching their AR goal of 30 points and receiving their AR shirt! First graders are excited to continue on with a heart for reading, and look forward to seeing how they can grow throughout the rest of the year! submitted by Jessica Dawkins
