Excited third grade students at Hayes and Stevenson Elementary welcomed members of the Fridley-Columbia Heights Rotary into their schools on Wednesday, November 8. Rotary member’s generously gave each third grade student their own copy of A Student’s Dictionary. This tradition is now in its 14th year.
Students were excited to browse through the book, practicing sign language and learning how to read braille. Members of Rotary helped show students some practical ways to navigate through the dictionary.
The dictionary project is one of the many community service projects that the Fridley-Columbia Heights Rotary participates in. They note on the Rotary website that “basic education and literacy are essential for reducing poverty, improving health, encouraging community and economic development, and promoting peace.”
We are thankful to the generous contributions of Fridley-Columbia Heights Rotary!
