ABC40 Honor Roll – Third Graders Receive Special Guests

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – Thrid graders in Springfield received a special gift on Monday. Four hundred dictionaries were delivered to five elementary schools across the city, as part of The Dictionary Project.

Brookings, Rebecca Johnson, Milton Bradley, Home Street and William Deberry elementary schools all took part. It’s all in an effort to help students become good writers, active readers, creative thinkers and resourceful learners.

The dictionaries are given to students to take home and keep for their own. The program has been adopted by individuals, businesses and civic organizations all over the country. Eighteen million dictionaries have given to children since the program began in 1995.


WGGB encourages readers to share their thoughts and engage in healthy dialogue about the issues. Comments containing personal attacks, profanity, offensive language or advertising will be removed. Please use the report comment function for any posts you feel should be reviewed. Thank you.
