Green Tree Rotary gave dictionaries to 430 third grade students in local elementary schools.  This is part of The Dictionary Project, which is a national program working to put dictionaries in the hands of third grade students throughout the country.  The goal of this program is to assist all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary. The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and at home for years to come. Educators see third grade as the dividing line between learning to read and reading to learn, so we encourage our sponsors to give dictionaries each year to children in the third grade.  We gave dictionaries to the students at Pittsburgh Westwood, Langley, Banksville, and Weil Elementary Schools, St Margaret of Scotland Elementary School and Keystone Oaks Elementary Schools, Aiken, Dormont and Myrtle Elementary Schools.  The children loved them.
