    Dictionaries for Every Third-Grade Student in Santa Barbara

    Dictionaries are currently being distributed to every third-grade student in Santa Barbara courtesy of the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise.

    Sunrise volunteers began delivering dictionaries to more than 600 third-grade students at Santa Barbara schools. Each Student Dictionary includes the Rotary emblem sticker on the front and a bookplate inside honoring the name of one of our speakers from the previous year.

    The goal of the Dictionary Project is to have a positive impact on education and to empower children to become skillful communicators and resourceful learners. For many young students, this dictionary is the first book that they have ever owned as theirs alone. Educators have determined that the 3rd grade is the best time to begin teaching young students how to use a dictionary. 

    This project is funded by the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise Charitable Foundation with support from a Rotary District 5240 grant.

We meet for breakfast on the first and third Wednesday mornings at 7:00 a.m. at the historic Santa Barbara Club, located at 1105 Chapala Street, Santa Barbara. Please join us as our guest and meet our members, get to know our club, and learn why Rotary is an outstanding service organization.
