Our 9th Annual Dictionary Project was another big success. During the month of November, 2018  dictionaries were given to every 3rd grader in the five Shaker Heights Elementary Schools and St. Dominic Elementary School. A total of 358 dictionaries  were given out. The dictionaries are greatly appreciated by both the students and the teachers. Several teachers commented, that the new blue cover dictionary, entitled "A Student's Dictionary" that we started giving out last year is especially helpful in the class room.  Many wonderful thank you letters have been received from the students. During the class time students practiced looking up words, like service  which relates to Rotary's Motto of "Service Above Self" and also the word election.  They also explored the maps of the world in the back of the dictionary and information about the 45 United States Presidents and facts about the State of Ohio.
