Thank you, Rotary Club!
This October 24 Rotarians from the Northlake-Mandeville Rotary Club (Mandeville, Louisiana) distributed 1,296 dictionaries at the following 10 public, private and parochial elementary schools:
Magnolia Trace Elementary
Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School
Lake Castle School
Mary Queen of Peace Catholic School
Northlake Christian School
The following are a few comments from some of the teachers and principals:
“Just wanted to follow up and see when y’all were interested in coming to do the dictionaries with the students.
They always get so excited about it!!”
Technology Resource Teacher
“Thank you so much for taking on this project again for our third graders. The children are always so excited to get their own dictionary. Thanks for supporting the kids in the public education system.”
“The kids really enjoyed your visit this morning, and they are certainly enjoying their dictionaries. It is a treat for them to be able to take them home ‘for keeps’. This is certainly a worthwhile project for Rotary.”
“I am thrilled that you are able to do this again this year.”
“Thank you so much for including us in this wonderful opportunity! We are very excited to be able to pass the dictionaries on to our students to use in the classrooms and at home.”
