Drop Everything and Read

The DEAR Challenge has been issued by the BC Teacher-Librarians’ Association, to all the people of this province, to Drop Everything and Read. Join with people from all walks of life around BC to celebrate the value of reading.  While most will stop at 11:oo for 20 Minutes of Silent Reading, stop whenever you can today for some SSR.  At Lord Tweedsmuir we have an SSR period each day from 9:25 to 9:44.   Be sure to take advantage of this valuable time to read something that you enjoy.
