Cathryn Campora, Aspire Apex Academy PTA, Stockton, CA

As one of the newer schools in the Aspire Public Schools System, it is important for us to provide each student with the right tools to learn and be successful. Dictionaries and other reference books are an essential part of building strong readers. Last year teachers had to use pictures of dictionaries and thesauruses to explain to students the role of each book and how it would be used. This year we are excited to to give each student their own dictionary and continue building a strong foundation for learning. Thank you Dictionary Project for helping us develop strong readers and successful learners!
