Republican Women give dictionaries to Walker Elementary students

 Third-grade students at Walker Elementary School will receive a generous donation on Wednesday, December 8, 2011 as the Cy-Fair Republican Women’s club (CFRW) donated 175 dictionaries for their use. The CFRW will have a brief presentation for the students during an assembly in the Walker cafeteria, followed by a student skit about dictionary use. The CFRW makes a dictionary donation to an area school each year. For 2010-2011, the organization chose Walker–a school in which 66 percent of the student population qualifies for the free lunch program. ‘By putting a dictionary in the hands of each third grade student at Walker, the Cy-Fair Republican Women’s Club has provided an invaluable resource to support each child’s mastery of reading and writing,’ said Walker principal Melissa Ehrhardt.
