My husband is a member of the VFW, every year they hand out dictionaries to local schools here in North Eastern NY, Clinton County. Our daughter got a job in Suitland, Maryland, as a special education teacher. We are very supportive of her career and wanted to make a difference. So last year we donated dictionaries to the 3rd graders at Princeton Elementary where she teaches. It was very heartwarming to see the look on the students’ faces when they received their books. It is something that we plan to continue doing on an annual basis for the students at Princeton. I think The Dictionary Project is a wonderful idea. We donate the dictionaries to support education, and we feel The Dictionary Project is just what every school district needs. I wish more school districts were aware of this project.
