The Rotary Club of Kittery had been donating dictionaries to every 3rd grader in the Kittery School system for a number of years. This year (2017) instead of the dictionaries,we donated $100 to each of the 3rd grader teachers to buy books for each of their 3rd grader classroom libraries. This assisted the teachers as they have been buying extra books out of their own pockets. In November, a number of our club members we went to Mitchell School and met with all the 3rd graders their teachers and the principal to present each of the teachers with a check. Read below the principals thank you, a copy of the front page of the school's newspaper plus some of the many thank yous from the students. Unfortunately, there are about 100 3rd graders this year, we could not publish all of the students thank yous.
