Barron County Third Graders To Receive Dictionaries

Third graders in Barron County will receive a special gift soon – the gift of words.
The Barron County Sunrise Rotary Dictionary Project is part of a nationwide effort to provide young students with their own personal dictionaries. Members of the Club will distribute the dictionaries to students at Barron, Chetek, Cumberland, Prairie Farm, and Turtle Lake schools, as well as several private schools.
The dictionary is filled with more than just words and definitions; it also includes the longest word in the English language, maps, facts about U.S. presidents, and math conversation tables.
Rotary members say seeing the smiles on the third grader’s faces when they learn the book is theirs to keep makes the project meaningful.
