D.E.A.R. Day
Drop Everything And Read
October 28th, 2013

DEAR Day
Today schools across B.C. will be participating in DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) Day committing at least 20 minutes to silent reading or buddy reading. At Haldane, students will be dropping everything and reading from 11:00 - 11:20. Chase Heat players will be at Haldane helping us celebrate this VERY important event.

Did you know that READING . . .
  • greatly increases you success at school and throughout your life?
  • improves your listening skills and ability to concentrate?
  • improves your writing skills?
  • increases your confidence?
If you haven't found something to read that completely hooks your interest . . .then come and visit your friendly, cool, school librarian!

Happy DEAR Day everybody - Mrs. Gartrell
