Tuesday, April 12 is "Drop Everything And Read" Day, and Shapleigh School is encouraging all students, staff, and families to spend some time reading today. D.E.A.R. programs have been held nationwide on April 12th in honor of Beverly Cleary’s birthday (she would have turned 100 today), since she first wrote about D.E.A.R. in Ramona Quimby, Age 8(pages 40-41). As D.E.A.R. has grown in popularity and scope, the program has expanded to span the entire month of April . . . offering classrooms and communities additional time to celebrate!
