April 21, 2015Moultrie Organizations Donate Books for D.E.A.R. Program 

The Moultrie Federated Guild and the Moultrie Junior Woman’s Club partnered together to donate a Beverly Cleary book to each 4th and 5th grade classroom, in the Colquitt County School System, in honor of the D.E.A.R. Program (Drop Everything and Read). This month-long celebration encourages kids to make reading a priority in their lives and to eventually become a daily routine. April 12th is known as Beverly Cleary’s birthday and the idea of D.E.A.R. comes from one of her written texts, Ramona Quimby. 

The two books donated were Ribsy to the 4th grade classrooms and Henry and the Paper Route to the 5th grade classrooms. These texts were each read aloud on Monday, April 13th, to celebrate the life of Beverly Cleary and the emphasis and life she gave to reading.
