Students at several campuses in Lewisville ISD are English Language Learners who come from high poverty homes. Many students do not have access to technology or resources to assist them in their educational endeavors.
Project Rationale: The project will ensure that students have access to a resource to aid in the English language development, Spanish language development, and content knowledge of 3rd grade TEKS
Timeline: Upon receipt of the grant, dictionaries will be purchased and distributed in the Fall or winter of 2020/2021. We will work with school representatives to distribute the dictionaries due to COVID 19 restrictions. Club members will label all dictionaries, deliver to teachers and if possible 3rd grade classes. The club will stress to 3rd graders about the importance of literacy for college and career readiness. Approximately 1200 students will receive dictionaries in Spanish/English or English only
