Rotarians Donate Dictionaries

3rd graders get dictionaries

Members of the Clinton Rotary Club recently donated dictionaries to every third-grader in Clinton City Schools. Rotary members Jo Suggs and Dean Knight visited classrooms to distribute the dictionaries on behalf of the Rotary Club. Mr. Knight explained to the students about the service work of the Rotary Club.

Students were challenged to “Stump the Principal” by learning a new vocabulary word that they thought their principal would not know!
