Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Sun Lakes AZ

Total Budget: $10,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Literacy

Summary: Distribution of dictionaries to 3rd grade students


This project is a repeat of the very successful dictionary project that we have done for years and years. We provide dictionaries to 3rd grade students throughout the Chandler Unified School District. This project gets Rotarians involved in the schools with the Principals, teachers and students. Typically about 40 Rotary members participate and make presentations at the schools to the students in a 3rd grade assembly. There is a script that we use that introduces the students to the dictionary and it is an ongoing tool for the teachers to use throughout the school year. Unfortunately for some of the students it is the first book that anyone has given them. In the past CUSD has helped fund this to the tune of $2000 and Ed Robson has also provided funding of $500.

I'm so sorry for the inconvenience, but (though the "block" district grant has been approved) The Rotary Foundation has not yet released the funds. It's frustrating when things like this are out of our hands, but we hope to be sending money to the clubs very soon. Thanks for your patience.
