Rotary Club of San Juan Islands shares news about one of their their long-standing education initiatives.
Members of the Rotary Club of San Juan Islands recently gifted dictionaries to third, fourth, and fifth grade students throughout San Juan County. The program reached students at Friday Harbor Elementary School, Paideia Classical School, Griffin Bay School, Stillpoint School, Orcas Island Elementary School, Salmonberry School, OASIS, and Lopez Elementary School.
It’s a joy to give each student a book after two years of COVID restrictions.
In the past 18 years of the project, Rotary has gifted more than 4,500 dictionaries under the leadership of its Literacy Chair, Barbara Fagan.
