Kuna Grange organized a group of individuals, Kuna businesses, and organizations who donated money to purchase dictionaries for the Third Grade students in the Kuna School District and to the Falcon Ridge Charter School. There are approximately 470 students in the Third Grade in Kuna this year. Kuna Grange has been doing the Words for Thirds Dictionary Project in the Kuna Schools for nine years.
Those who donated to the project this year were members of Kuna Grange#59, Mayor W. Greg Nelson, Rich Cardoza, El Gallo Giro, Paul’s Market, Rob Morris #63 OES, Kuna Machine Shop, Marie B. Durrant, Pat & Shelly Jones, Jim & Sherri Russell, and Kuna Welding. Kuna Grange wishes to thank these contributors who helped with the Words for Thirds Dictionary Project.
The Third Graders were so excited to have a Dictionary of their very own. They will be able to use these in many ways as they learn to use a dictionary and with subjects they will be studying during the coming year – such as Sign Language, the Planets, etc.
