Each year all third-grade students located in the Anoka-Hennepin School District receive a dictionary from their local Rotary club, including the Coon Rapids Rotary Club.
Rotarians distribute over 3,000 student dictionaries to the students in all 25 schools located in the district.
The gift will be very helpful as the students begin to learn word and dictionary skills, according to John Piper, Coon Rapids Rotarian.
Jan. 7, Coon Rapids Rotarians distributed the dictionaries to the two third-grade classes at Epiphany School.
This literacy project is made possible by the Rotary clubs from Anoka, Blaine/Ham Lake, Coon Rapids and Ramsey, the Anoka-Hennepin Educational Foundation and Connexus Energy.
