DEAR Program - Every year, in the month of September, every member of team Glendale put aside all other work and participate in the DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) programme at the school. An hour’s time is kept aside for reading for pleasure. Every person in the school selects a book and read, in silence savoring those moments. With its commitment to promoting the reading habit among the students and staff, DEAR Day is observed to reinforce the message that reading for pleasure is a valuable activity in itself and helps children and adults make books their best friends for life.
