Rotary Club Boca Raton West Hold Sucessful Dictionary Project Celebration

The third grade is a year where you are going through a lot of new and exciting changes when it comes to your education. You learn to write in cursive, you learn to play the recorder, and you begin those dreaded spelling test that you can’t perfect not matter how hard you try.

The Rotary Club Boca Raton West has been trying to make third grader’s lives easier for over four years with the Dictionary Project.

The Project bring together three local schools, Coral Sunset, Waters Edge, and Del Prado as all third grade student in those three school receive their own, personal dictionary.

“The best part of the whole project is seeing the joy in the kid’s faces,” says Dini Heizer, President of the Rotary Club Boca Raton West. “We have been doing this for numerous years and today was one of the best celebrations parties we’ve ever had.”

The Dictionary Project begins in September, near the start of the school year, with members of the Rotary Club going to the three schools and speaking to the kids about the importance of dictionaries, and the essay contest that they will participate in.

The sponsor of the Dictionary Project this year was Ultimate Soccer Store, a new soccer store that will open in Boca Raton at the end of the month, and because of this every kid was encouraged to write an essay regarding soccer.

Over 20 essays were handed in by students, and one student from each school was chosen and received a kindle as their reward for the best-written essay at their respective school.

This year the Rotary Club of Boca Raton West also awarded the teacher that most supported the project with a gift card to Blue Fashion, a fashion boutique in Boca Raton.

With over 100 attendees at Sugar Sand Park, The Rotary Club of Boca Raton West had its most successful post-project celebration to date.

“We are very excited at the turnout that we had today at the park,” added Heizer. “We can expect this project to continue to grow in the coming years.”
