Rotary Club To Provide Dictionaries to Students

The Rotary Club is distributing dictionaries to all Garden City Public Schools students this week.

The Garden City Rotary Club will be distributing dictionaries to third graders at Garden City Public Schools during the week of December 9th as part of the Rotary Dictionary Project.  The club will provide Scholastic dictionaries to Florence Wilson Elementary at 8:30 a.m. and Buffalo Jones Elementary at 9:30 a.m. on Monday.

The group will distribute dictionaries to Georgia Matthew Elementary at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

The group will distribute dictionaries to Plymell Elementary at 9:00 a.m. and Jennie Barker Elementary at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

The group will distribute dictionaries to Victor Ornelas Elementary at 1:00 p.m., Gertrude Walker Elementary at 2:30 p.m., and Edith Scheuerman Elementary at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday.

The group will distribute dictionaries to Abe Hubert Elementary at 8:30 a.m., Jennie Wilson Elementary at 10:30 a.m. and Alta Brown Elementary at 11:15 a.m. on Friday.

The object of the Rotary Dictionary Projectis to give every student a personal dictionary of their very own that will serve them at least through elementary and middle school. 

Receiving the dictionaries from Rotary members is beneficial to students as well.  The students meet successful adults in the community who care enough to provide them dictionaries and come to their school to present them personally.

Rotary members provide a brief explanation of service being done in the community and around the world.  This gives students a lasting positive impression of Rotary and the ideal of service.
