Dictionary distribution

Monterey Peninsula Sunrise Rotary and the Dictionary Project

The Dictionary Project is working toward the goal of sending dictionaries to every elementary school in the United States. By doing this, we hope to have a positive impact on education in this country and empower children to become skillful communicators and resourceful learners.

A pocket dictionary may be a small thing, but it is a powerful tool to help with learning, and when it is a gift from a child’s community, the child learns from it, not just the value of school work, but also the example of community service.

The Monterey Peninsula Sunrise Rotary Club recently completed distributing dictionaries to the third graders of both Martin Luther King Elementary and International School of Monterey.
