D.E.A.R Day

Students and Staff and Don Valley Academy are taking part in National D.E.A.R.(Drop Everything and Read) Day. At the start of every lesson staff and students will take part in reading activities.

The day is celebrated every year on April 12th. That's the birthday of author Beverly Cleary, whose characters Ramona and older sister Beezus are now favorites of a new generation of readers. On this day, families are encouraged to take at least 30 minutes to put aside all distractions and enjoy books together. What will you be reading?
