The Optimist Club of North St. Louis County, MO, presented dictionaries to students at nine public and private schools in their community.
They received many thank-you letters from students and teachers.
Here are a few of them:
Dear Mr. Rieth and Optimist Members,
Thank you for your generous gift of dictionaries for my Third Grade Class. The children have found them useful and have enjoyed reading the extra interesting information found inside. Some students pull them out of their desk daily for reference or entertainment. We were thrilled to receive such a wonderful gift.
The students each wrote a letter thanking you for their dictionary. Please overlook any spelling or grammatical mistakes and enjoy their sincere appreciation of your thoughtfulness.
