Lewisville Morning Rotary members get ready to distribute dictionaries to 3rd Graders
Lewisville Morning Rotary Members continue 
the 3rd Grade Dictionary Project in 2020-2021
in spite of Covid 19 pandemic limitations.
 
Members labeled over 1000 dictionaries today which will go to 3rd graders at 11 LISD schools. We were able to mask-up and socially distance in a large room to get the job done! Next step is to deliver to the schools! #lewisvillemorningrotary #PeopleOfAction #ServiceAboveSelf
 
Thank you to Deanna Perkins for her leadership in organizing the labeling event, Charlene Dierks for working with the schools and coordinating dictionaries needed at the schools. Thank you also to the labelers Maithen and Neal Fluhrer, Bob Troyer, Charlene Dierks, Mark Smith and Deanna Perkins. Thanks also to Marilyn Pokorny for preparing over 1000 labels.

Volunteer opportunities at Reading Partners of North Texas or at Community in Schools of North Texas as a mentor
 
 
Lewisville Morning Rotary members
encouraged to participate with
Reading Partners of North Texas
Or, at Community in Schools of North Texas
 
At our January 14th weekly virtual Rotary meeting, Club President, Mark Smith presented a fantastic opportunity, particularly those of us home bound by the pandemic to to volunteer with Reading Partners of North Texas. Our club members have a passion for supporting learning and literacy. We support via our dictionary project, our annual perfect attendance awards at Central Elementary School and by participating in various CES reading programs throughout the year. Unfortunately, the pandemic has limited what we can do not only to protect the students but ourselves as well. The Reading Partners of North Texas will allow our members to volunteer virtually. Click here to learn more and sign up. 
 
Club members will also consider a similar "mentor" program offered by Community in Schools North Texas. For more information on "mentors", click here. As a result of pandemic safety procedures, the mentor program is now virtual. The club is inviting the volunteer manager of volunteers to visit a future meeting to discuss the program.
