Fairgrieve Elementary third-graders and fourth-graders recently received both holiday cheer and free dictionaries from Fulton Noon Rotary members.
Rotarians Alissa Viscome, Patrick Kinane and Pamela Kinane spoke with the students about the importance of literacy and learning. They said that when students obtain the proper educational tools, such as their own dictionary, they will improve their literacy skills.
As the dictionaries were handed out to each student, they rushed back to their seats and flipped through the pages, looking up new words. Principal Jean Sampsell said it was nice to see the students so excited to learn new information.
Rotarians also distributed free dictionaries to all third-graders and fourth-graders at Granby, Volney and Lanigan elementary schools.
Below are some photos from FCSD elementary schools of the recent dictionary donations:
