Drop Everything and Read (D.E.A.R.) is the time when everyone in school including the Principal, teachers and students pick up a book and begin to read for a designated amount of time. Every room in our school has a shelf or two of age appropriate books for easy access, for one never knows when the D.E.A.R time bell rings! At Boond – The Foundation School, we strive to instill good reading habits in kids at an early age which will prove beneficial for life.
