- __Struthers Rotary participates in Dictionary Project December 11, 2013
The Struthers Rotary continues its participation in the Dictionary Project. 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. The Rotary provides dictionaries to all third grade students at Campbell, Lowellville, and Struthers City Schools along with St Nicholas School.
