Celebrating Literacy Month

Chase Rotary is celebrating Literacy Month with grade 3 students at Haldane Elementary and Chief Atahm school!

Chase School Literacy initiative

On October18th members of the Chase Rotary Club visited and distributed dictionaries to each grade 3 student at Haldane and Chief Atahm on the Adams Lake Reserve. During their visits, Past President Jacquie Everett gave a brief overview of how to use the dictionary, showed the students where they could print their name in the book plus, explained how Rotary contributes to their respective communities.

The Rotary Club had recently hosted a Texas scramble golf tournament at Sunshore Golf Club and the funds raised, were distributed to the Chase Literacy organization and for the purchase of these student dictionaries.

The Chase Rotary Club also distributed this week, dictionaries to grade 3 students at Sorrento, Carlin and North Shuswap Elementary schools.

Thank you, Doug and Jacquie for ensuring the dictionaries have been distributed!! I know the children who receive them are very excited to have their own dictionaries, and enjoy learning how to use them.
