Words for Thirds Dictionary Project

Each year, the Bennington Public Schools Foundation teams up with the Bennington Lions Club to purchase dictionaries for every third grader in the district. The two organizations present the dictionaries to the classes each year.

The goal of the program is to assist third grade students to complete the school year as good writers, active readers and creative thinkers by providing them with their own personal dictionaries. The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and at home for years to come.
