Dictionary Donations

Third-grade students throughout the district were treated to a special surprise at the annual Read to Achieve at Bethpage High School. The event, which was a pep rally for reading, served as the venue for the Lions Club of Plainview-Bethpage to distribute its annual donation of a dictionary to each student. Lions Club President George Hannau was on site for the distribution. The Dictionary Project provides an opportunity for students to expand their vocabulary while aiding teachers in their goal to see all of their students finish the school year as good writers, active readers and creative thinkers. This is the fourth year the dictionaries, which also serve as almanacs, were distributed by the Lions Club.
