District-Wide DEAR

Drop Everything and Read!

Date: Monday, March 3, 2014

Time: 9:05 A.M. - 9:25 A.M.

Location: DuPont Tyler Middle Prep (CPR Class)


Drop Everything & Read is a collaborative program between MNPS & the Nashville Public Library. It will serve as the kickoff event for Read Across America Week which is celebrated annually at MNPS schools.

This is a special time when everyone in the school building (students, teachers, and staff) are encouraged to read for 20 minutes. It can look like lots of things:

o An adult reading to a group of students

o Students reading to each other

o Students reading together

o Independent reading

Free Stuff: All participants will receive DEAR stickers and tatoos.

Big Prizes: There will be one gift card drawing for each grade level. All students that parcipate will get a chance to enter the drawing. More information to follow.

Don't Forget!

Remind your students to be prepared for DEAR on 3/3/14. Materials check-out will not take place during DEAR. The library staff will be reading at that time, too!

You are welcome to send five students at a time to check-out materials...any time.....to the library. Please make sure they have a pass.
