Local Rotarians Give Third-Graders Head Start on Test Prep with New Dictionaries


"This is our 7th year of contributing dictionaries to 3 graders in 9 public and 5 private schools in central Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Each year, the students and their teachers are more appreciative of the donation. My favorite event is the child who sent me a letter of thanks that ended P.S. I used the dictionary to spell Sincerely."

Donald Walter, Rotary Club of Greater Severna Park, Severna Park, MD
