Boone County Retired Teachers/Support Staff (BSRT&SS) Give Out Student Dictionaries

Carl Bear and Claude Whited of the Boone County Retired Teachers/Support Staff (BSRT&SS) recently presented student dictionaries from the National Dictionary Project to third grade students in three Newton County schools, Mount Judea, Deer, and Western Grove, a member of the Ozark Mountain School District. The dictionaries were for each student’s personal use. The goal of this non-profit program is to assist all students in becoming 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. Educators see third grade as the dividing line between learning to read and reading to learn. BCRT&SS is proud to be a sponsor of The Dictionary Project. The Dictionary Project’s vision is to provide a dictionary to every student in the United States, helping them improve their communication skills and make the most of their education.
