Each year the Rotary Club of Visalia joins the other Rotary clubs in town to provide every third grade student in Visalia a personal dictionary of their very own that will serve them at least through elementary and middle school.
Many educators and researchers see this as a key to better reading, speech, and writing. These skills will improve student performance in other subjects as well.
Receiving the dictionaries from Rotary members is beneficial to students as well. The young people meet successful adults in their community who care enough about them to purchase these dictionaries and come to their school to present them personally.
The brief explanation of Rotary service in the community and around the world gives students a lasting positive impression of Rotary and the ideal of service.
The more access to books at home the more a child will succeed.
