Rotary gives the gift of learning

1. Special day class gets dictionaries

Karla Maldonado teaches the Special Day Class at South Fortuna Elementary School. This combined grade class received a visit from the Fortuna Rotary Club, which provided new dictionaries for the third graders. The students are very proud of their new dictionaries and will be using them in their classroom and taking them home at the end of the school year.

2. Third graders receive dictionaries

Longtime teacher Jeweline Huddleston and her 3rd grade South Fortuna Elementary School class received new dictionaries from the Fortuna Sunrise Rotary. The dictionaries are used in all areas of curriculum in the classroom. Huddleston in previous years has had many students during free time use the dictionaries for tracing the beautiful pictures within them to simply reading the amazing facts contained within. The dictionaries are forever the property of the student and at the end of the year they take them home to use in future educational needs.
