Chester Rotarians delivered dictionaries to every 3rd grade student a 7 local elementary schools in the Chester area as part of the yearly Dictionary Project. Local schools included: CC Wells, Curtis, Ecoff, Elizabeth Scott, Enon, Harrowgate and Marguerite Christian Elementary Schools.
The goal of this program is to assist all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary. The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and at home for years to come. Educators see third grade as the dividing line between learning to read and reading to learn, so we encourage our sponsors to give dictionaries each year to children in the third grade.
