Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Gilbert, Arizona, USA

Total Budget: $11,500

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: Provide new dictionaries to third graders in Gilbert, East Mesa and Queen Creek


Dictionaries may be used by students during merit testing, but schools cannot afford them. Teachers use the extensive glossaries to teach geography, current events, astronomy, sign language and mathematics. Club members sticker each dictionary with a Rotary sticker and Four-Way Test sticker, deliver the boxes to the schools and, when allowed, make a short presentation about Rotary, and learning new words, their meanings and spellings. The program has been well-received by over thirty schools for nearly 20 years. The physical book is not dead and we can prove it.

Congratulations! The Rotary Foundation has approved our block grant, which means we'll have the funds soon.

As you know, you must wait until this point to spend any grant funds. Your final report, which is due April 30, must include

receipts for the entire budget of your grant (gather them as you go along, please) dated August 4 or later. The report form is

available in the Foundation section of rotary5495.org. Please be sure your bank information is up-to-date so there is no delay

in sending the funds by electronic transfer. This information, as well as questions about when you'll receive the money, should

be addressed to our District Treasurer, Lucinda General at treasurer@rotary5495.org
