The Amityville Rotary Club came through for third-graders at Northwest Elementary School in a big way! The Rotary donated 250 copies of the “Student Dictionary and Animal Gazette” as part of the Dictionary Project, a national organization that works with local Rotaries, Kiwanis Clubs and other local service organizations and deems third grade one of the most critical times in a child’s literacy development. Amityville Rotary representatives Martha Peterson and Rena Nowacoski stopped by the school to personally deliver the dictionaries to every third-grade classroom. The dictionaries also include basic sign language symbols.
