Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Literacy

Summary: Provide dictionaries for third grade students in the Chandler Unified School District

This project is a repeat of the very successful dictionary project that we have done for many years. We provide dictionaries to 3rd grade students throughout the Chandler Unified School District. This project gets Rotarians involved in the schools with the Principals, teachers and students. Typically about 40 Rotary members participate and make presentations at the schools to the students in a 3rd grade assembly. There is a script that we use that introduces the students to the dictionary and it is an ongoing tool for the teachers to use throughout the school year. Unfortunately for some of the students it is the first book that anyone has given them. In the past CUSD and a couple of other Rotary Clubs have helped with the funding of this project. Currently unsure of the exact total dollar amount that will be spent on this project this year but the best estimate is that it will cost around $12,500. District school staff will contribute time and make an area available for preparation of the dictionaries prior to delivery. The school district will also contribute limited funds. The project will documented with photos and this information will be disseminated to local media by the Sun Lakes Rotary public information designee.
