DEAR Kick-Off

We are excited for another semester of teaching and learning here at Ivy Prep. This semester, scholars will participate in DEAR time each day from 3 pm - 3:30 pm. Please read the attached letter from our literacy coach, Ms. McNeil.

Happy New Year Ivy Families,

We are excited about the Spring 2022 semester! It is going to be an amazing and productive semester. This semester your scholar will have the opportunity to participate in D.E.A.R. time each day at school. D.E.A.R. stands for Drop Everything and Read. D.E.A.R. time is a time set aside in the schedule where teachers and scholars “drop everything and read”. The purpose of D.E.A.R. time is to encourage scholars to read independently. We hope that setting aside this time each day will spark a love for reading amongst our scholars. Scholars are able to read a book of their choice. They will engage during D.E.A.R. time Monday through Friday during dismissal from 3: 00 - 3:30 pm. We ask that scholars bring their own personal books to read during D.E.A.R. time due to the current COVID protocols. Scholars will be provided with a book if they do not have access to one. We are looking forward to starting D.E.A.R. time on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

We appreciate your continued partnership in the education of your scholar and look forward to the start and success of this program at Ivy Preparatory Academy. Please feel free to contact me via email if you have any questions.

Happy Reading!

The Right Choice for Girls,

Ms. Kristen McNeil

Literacy Coach
