Rotarian reports on large successful dictionary project
The dictionary project is completed for Iron, Beaver, and Garfield counties, and one charter school, Gateway Preparatory Academy.
I am a real advocate for getting the dictionaries in the hands of the third graders as soon as school starts. I guess this is the old third grade teacher coming out in me.
We gave 888 dictionaries to students and 39 to teachers, 1 to a custodian (who was using a 1966 dictionary), and left several in classrooms for new students.
