Guam - At a special presentation this morning, the Rotary Club of Northern Guam donated dictionaries to the entire third grade class of Machanaonao Elementary School.

Rotarian vice consul Roberto Fracassini said, "If you want to improve your vocabulary, if you want to learn your English better, a word you don't know or are not very familiar with, you check into this book here. [The information] remains there for the rest of your life - that's the purpose of this book."

This is the seventh year the Rotarians have donated books to third grade students, noting that this is the age students evolve from learning to read, to instead reading to learn. Deputy superintendant and former Machanaonao principle Rob Malay helped the students find their very first word in the dictionary.
