Dictionary Project





History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Boise

Total Budget: $1,440

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Literacy

Summary: Distributing approximately 150-180 dictionaries to 5 third grade classes in five different schools in Boise.

The Rotary Club of Boise Centennial has participated in the Rotary dictionary project since we started and we would like to use this grant to continue again this year. We will provide dictionaries to the five 3rd grade classes that we normally do to help the students increase their literacy and introduce them to Rotary. We plan to have these distributed by November 2020. The Funds from the grant will be used to purchase the dictionaries and the Rotarians in the club will distribute them and instruct the students on how to use them.

Addendum to Project Description (added after the project was signed)

This project continues to be delayed by Covid.

We have a commitment from 3 schools.

Dictionaries just arrived this week. We changed the order because there was a lack of response form the teachers so far fewer books will be delivered. Here is what chagned:

6 cases on ordered (normally its 18-20)

Price is the same as last year: $72.00 per case

Cost: $432.00 vs. last year: $1,440.00

3 3rd grades/schools vs 6 last year

Please let us know if you have questions and if we need to do anything because of the changes.
