Third grade students at Monroe and Plain City elementary schools were recently presented their own dictionaries, compliments of the Marysville Elks No. 1130.
In honor of Veterans Day, the students used their dictionary to look up the word veteran after they received their dictionary.
Aided by a grant from the Elks National Foundation, almost 900 dictionaries were distributed by the Elks to third-graders in all of the elementary schools in the Union County school systems.
According to Kermit Morse III the Dictionary Project manager, “The Elks feel that a child cannot do his or her best work without a dictionary and that is why we do this annual project.”
This is the eighth year for the dictionary project.
