Volunteers to distribute dictionaries to 3rd grade students in San José

Today, students in third grade classrooms across the San José Unified School District will receive their very own dictionary provided by the California Dictionary Project.


Volunteers from Adobe, Cisco, Intel, iPlanit, Councilwoman Pyle’s Office, Community Leadership San José, TBI Construction, Lockheed Martin, the Mayor’s Office, San José State, Foothill College, Rotary, and EDRC will be joined by City Council members Rocha & Oliverio, SJTA President, Stephen McMahon and SJUSD board member Leslie Reynolds as they each distribute dictionaries and facilitate a short dictionary lesson to their individual class. Volunteers will illustrate how to use a dictionary and explore the great pieces of information, such as the longest word, the solar system, and names of the presidents, all to be found in the back of the dictionary.
