On Tuesday, Sept 2, the Rotary Club of Hattiesburg-Sunrise donated dictionaries to all 3rd grade students in Hattiesburg Public Schools. The dictionaries were presented to students at Woodley to be given to all 3rd graders across the district. This is the 10th year the group has presented dictionaries to students in HPSD.
The dictionaries are the students’ own personal books for them to keep and use for years to come. The club believes that a dictionary in the home can help promote literacy for the entire family. Dictionaries can help students learn new words and encourage them to continue reading at higher and higher levels.
