Marcellus Grange Supports Words for Thirds

Marcellus Grange members presented dictionaries to each of the 132 third grade students at the Katherine C. Heffernan Elementary School, Marcellus Central School District and 70 third grade students at the Wheeler Elementary School of the Onondaga Central School District. The Dictionary Project is a national program to assist all students to become good writers, active readers, creative thinkers and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary. The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and at home for years to come. Marcellus Grange has provided over 1,000 dictionaries to third graders in these schools for more than five years.
