Bulverde Area Republican Women (Bar-W) members distributed 465 dictionaries to third-grade students at local schools during the week of Sept. 21.
Members also distributed 112 dictionaries at Timberwood Elementary, 103 at Bill Brown Elementary, 99 at Johnson Ranch Elementary, 90 at Specht Elementary, 73 at Rahe Bulverde and 62 at Arlan Seay Elementary Schools.
As part of the Literacy Project initiated by the National Federation of Republican Women, the Bulverde Area Republican Women have committed to providing a personal dictionary to every third grade student in the community.
The dictionary project was designed to aid students and their teachers in ensuring that all students leave at the end of the year as good writers, active readers and creative thinkers.
Bar-W thanks the members who assisted in the distribution of dictionaries to the area schools, including Linda Bryant, Charlene Busch, Fran Carlson, John Clements, Judy Geissen, Lisa Hasbrook and Carol Morgan.
