Rotary Dictionary Project 2015

rotary dictionary books

The object of the Rotary Dictionary Project is to provide third grade students a personal dictionary of their very own that will serve them at least through elementary and middle school.

Many educators and researchers 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, nationally alost 2 million dictionaries will be distributed. The Rotary Club of Jupiter Tequesta expects to distribute over 700 dictionaries to our local elementary schools including Beacon Cove Intermediate School, Jupiter Elementary School, Good Shephard Episcopal School, and Jupiter Farms Elementary School.
