Dictionary Project
click to print this pageprint this page

The object of the Rotary Dictionary Project is to give every third grade student a personal dictionary of their very own that will serve them at least through elementary and middle school. Many teachers see this as a key to better reading, speech, and writing.  These skills will improve student performance in other subjects as well. Receiving the dictionaries from Rotary members is beneficial to students as well.  The young people meet successful adults in their community who care enough about them to purchase these dictionaries and come to their school to present them personally. The brief explanation of Rotary service in the community and around the world gives students a lasting positive impression of Rotary and the ideal of service.

 

This year, Port St. Lucie Rotary distributed 1,800 dictionaries, one for each third grader in St. Lucie County.
