3rd graders receive free dictionaries

Over 400 3rd grade students in 11 elementary schools received free dictionaries Tuesday.

Old Brooklyn Buzz, a grass roots organization in the Old Brooklyn neighborhood of Cleveland, teamed up with Old Brooklyn Community Development Corporation, Brooklyn-Cleveland Kiwanis Club, and Honey Hut Ice Cream Shoppe to raise awareness about the project and the funding to make it happen.

The goal of the program is to assist all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary.

Below is a list of all the schools who received free dictionaries.

· Old Brooklyn Community Elementary

· Mary Queen of Peace

· St. Mary's Grade School

· Pearl Academy

· Horizon Science Academy

· Benjamin Franklin Elementary

· Luther Memorial School

· William Cullen Bryant Elementary

· St. Leo Grade School
