Message from Club President Rose Brousseau
We have had a busy Rotary year so far:
In October 2014 we honored two wonderful educators of our Brentwood schools – Ann Schnal from Southwest Elementary and Donna Keller from the Brentwood High School.
Our holiday party last December was wonderful. We had about 100 students, teachers and helpers. Santa did a great job!
Our collection of school supplies for our outreach programs was well supported.
Many wonderful speakers have presented.
We just finished our dictionary project for the third graders in the nine elementary schools. About 1500 dictionaries were given out.
Who knows what else we will accomplish before this Rotary year ends? Tune in to find out!
Thanks for helping us.
The Language Arts chair, Ann Palmer, from the Brentwood Schools, with the aid of Lou Brousseau from our club put together a contest for K-Grade 8. The students had to choose a charity of group that does good in our community and write about it. This event works well with the Core Curriculum. Each grade will have a winner who will present their prize to the charity.
Also going on this spring is our dictionary distribution. Our Rotary Club has done this for a number of years.All the third graders will receive a dictionary of their own to use in class and at home. We are so proud to do this. Remember, when you put a book in a child’s hand, you create magic. So, a dictionary helps their love for words which goes into their love for writing. We are so happy to be part of the Brentwood students education. Kudos to the students!
