MISSION: The goal of this 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, so we encourage our Rotarians to give dictionaries each year to children in the third grade.
VISION: Through individual Rotary Clubs, we want to provide a personalized dictionary to every third grade student in District 6110. In this way we hope to help them to improve their communication skills and make the most of their education.
