THE DICTIONARY PROJECT


The Minisink Valley Kiwanis organization has brought an important program to all of the third graders in our schools.  The Dictionary Project is a nonprofit organization that raises money to buy dictionaries for third grade students.  The goal of this program is to assist students in completing the school year as good writers, active readers and creative thinkers by providing students with their own personal dictionaries.  The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and at home for years to come.

 

The Minisink Valley Kiwanis recognizes that reading is the most important skill of all.  Dictionaries will assist in developing this skill.  The members of Kiwanis have given generously of their time to raise money for this project.  They held assemblies in the intermediate school and Otisville Elementary School last week to personally distribute the dictionaries to our third graders.  We thank these men and women for continuing to care about our students.
