Rotary Donates Dictionaries to Students


Thank you to the Joliet Rotary Club who donated over 1,000 dictionaries to all Joliet Public Schools District 86 third grade students. In addition to delivering the dictionaries, members of the Rotary shared the Rotary Four-Way Test with the third grade students at T.E. Culbertson, M.J. Cunningham, Eisenhower, Farragut, Forest Park Individual Education, Thomas Jefferson, Edna Keith, A.O. Marshall, Pershing, Sator Sanchez, Carl Sandburg, Isaac Singleton, Taft, Lynne Thigpen, and Woodland Elementary Schools, looked up words in the dictionaries, and reviewed the sections on presidents, states, and even sign language in the dictionaries with the students. The Rotary Four-Way Test asks, "Is it the TRUTH, Is it FAIR to all concerned, Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS, and "Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"
