Elementary School Dictionaries
High School Dictionaries

Niwot Elementary Dictionary Distribution: October 16th, 2008, is the 250th birthday of Noah Webster!

So, on that day, the Niwot Rotary distributed dictionaries to the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students and the library at Niwot Elementary School. Each student's name was printed on a label in the front of each book.

The dictionaries for the 4th and 5th grades were purchased by the Niwot Rotary and will be provided annually to all 3rd graders in the future. This year, the dictionaries for the 3rd grade were sponsored by Ryan Ferrero (President of the Loveland Rotary). Ryan and his two sons, Dillon and Riley, raised money for the dictionaries by riding from a triple tandem bicycle from Astoria, Oregon, to Sun Valley, Idaho, this summer. That is a natural distance of around 800 miles. They took off for a few hills but figure they rode over 450 of it. Dillon and Riley are students at Niwot Elementary.

At right, Rotarian Kelly Blackman and Matt Driscoll distribute in the 3rd grade. Note the Rotary's 4-way test is on the board.

Maitland Kunik works the 5th graders.

 Stephanie Horne's 4th graders show off their books.

The distribution Crew included Ryan and his sons Riley and Dillon, Kelly Blackman, Maitland Kunik, and Matt Driscoll.

Niwot High School ELL/ESL Distribution:

Eli submitted the information on our distribution day to the people at the home project and they posted a good article with pictures on the distribution at Niwot High School:  Dictionary Project Web Site Article. ELL is, by the way is "English Language Learners" and now the more modern term for "English as a Second Language'".
