We would like to Publicly thank the Chadron Rotary for once again providing our 3rd Grade

students with brand new dictionaries.  

The Chadron Rotary Club gave a dictionary to every third-grade student at Chadron

Intermediate School this week as part of a nationwide initiative focused on providing

dictionaries to students across the country. 

The object of the Rotary Dictionary Project is to provide third grade students a personal

dictionary of their very own that will serve them at least through elementary and middle

school. Many educators and researchers see this as a key to better reading, speech,

and writing. These skills will improve student performance in other subjects as well.

Receiving the dictionaries from Rotary members is beneficial to students as well. The

young people meet successful adults in their community who care enough about them

to purchase these dictionaries and come to their school to present them personally. The

brief explanation of Rotary service in the community and around the world gives students

a lasting positive impression of Rotary and the ideal of service.
