We will work with school representatives to distribute the dictionaries due to COVID 19 restrictions. Club members will label all dictionaries, deliver to teachers and if possible 3rd grade classes. The club will stress to 3rd graders about the importance of literacy for college and career readiness. Approximately 1080 students will receive dictionaries English only
