Giving The Gift of Words
AT A CRITICAL TIME IN EVERY CHILD’S EDUCATION, THE CLUB IS THERE WITH THE PERFECTLY WRITE SOLUTION.
Now imagine if you had gotten a free dictionary of your very own. A dictionary you could use when you ran across a word in your reading that you didn’t know the
meaning of. Think of what that could have done for your vocabulary. Which of course would have helped your writing. And your reading comprehension. And your writing. And your test scores. Which would mean better grades. And so on and so on.
And now you know the idea behind the Rotary Club of Brighton’s Dictionaries For 3rd Graders Program. Where every year since 2005, we’ve given every single incoming 3rd Grader at French Road Elementary School their own personal dictionary. Over eleven school years, that’s over 2,800 dictionaries for 2,800 better reading, better writing, better grade-getting kids. And from our perspective, that’s how success is written.
