"Pizza or burger?"
That was the question of the day as students filed in for lunch from none other than Principal Thomas Eagan.
Eagan donned a pizza-shaped hat and attractive white smock as he served lunch to the school's 300+ students.
He served the lunches as a tribute to the students for their strong performance in the "Drop Everything And Read" (DEAR) program during the week of February 14.
Each year, the school celebrates DEAR. From Monday to Thursday of the week, an announcement is made for everyone to "DEAR." On Friday of the week, the school has a Prime Time Reading Activity in the afternoon with students in grades K-2 reading in the dining hall and students in grades 3-5 reading in the gymnasium. Students bring pillows, blankets, etc. to camp out on the floor with their classmates.
During this year's DEAR, students in grades K-2 read for a total of 13,000 minutes while students in grades 3-5 read a total of 9,289 pages.
