Rotary Dictionary Project at Sugarland

The vocabulary and spelling of third-graders at Sugarland Elementary are about to skyrocket thanks to a gift from the Ashburn Rotary Club.

Rotarians Doug Corbett, LeAnne Grammo, Michael Grammo, Sharon Wright and Nii Koranteng visited third grade classrooms at Sugarland on Friday, October 19th, to present dictionaries to the students. 

This is the first time the Ashburn Rotary Club has taken part in the Dictionary Project.  The Rotarians presented a total of 96 copies of Webster’s Dictionary for Students. Students wrote their names inside their copies, which are theirs to keep and use throughout their educational careers.

The effort was organized by Rotary Youth Services Chair LeAnne Grammo, whose sons Tyler and Preston joined her from Ball’s Bluff Elementary to assist with the effort.
