Engendering a love of words in students

VOE Dictionary

By Mary-Justine Lanyon

On Friday, April 14, four Rotarians – Bill Mellinger, Linda Oswalt, Stanley Oswalt and Brent Leistra (1 – pictured with Acting Principal Tracy Cairns) – delivered dictionaries to third-graders and thesauruses to fifth-graders at Valley of Enchantment Elementary School.

As soon as the third-graders got their dictionaries, they started looking up words immediately (2). And the fifth-graders were also pleased to receive their thesauruses (3).

This is one of the many annual projects sponsored by the Crestline-Lake Gregory Rotary Club. For more information on the club, visit crestlinerotary.com.
