Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Yonkers

Total Budget: $5,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Literacy

Summary: Provide Dictionaries for 3rd graders & Pencils for 1st Graders in Yonkers

We will be providing dictionaries to 3rd grade students, and Pencils to First Grade students in Yonkers Public Schools. It will take about twenty Rotarians to complete this project. Each child can improve reading, vocabulary, word origins and spelling. The dictionaries give third graders a resource at home to help with spelling and grammar for school. Several of the schools we will provide dictionaries and pencils to are classified as Title 1 schools and have high rates of economically disadvantaged students who may not have access to online study resources at home.

The dictionaries and pencils will be purchased and distributed in the Fall of 2019 or early Spring 2020. Club members will label all dictionaries, deliver to 3rd grade classes, Pencils will be supplied in boxes with a Rotary label on each box to all First Grade Classes.

The project funds will help pay for the dictionaries ($3.75 per dictionary, pencils ($9/box) as well as the Rotary labels. The labels are pasted in the front page of each dictionary.
