3rd grade

Third grade students at Oskaloosa Elementary were presented with dictionaries by members of Pleasant View Grange #1459 from Ozawkie on Wednesday, December 7th.

For the past several years, Pleasant View Grange has been providing a personal dictionary for every third grader at Oskaloosa Elementary School. This is part of both the Kansas State Grange and the National Grange's partnership with The Dictionary Project's Words for Thirds program. Charitable work and community service is often the focus at the local Grange level. The goal of this project is to help teachers encourage students to become active readers, good writers, and creative thinkers. Pleasant View Grange members Roger Bostwick (Kansas State Grange President), Melanie Bostwick, Mandy Bostwick & President Molly Newman were delighted to present these dictionaries to help our third graders grow in their love of words.
