Donating dictionaries to St. Helens students
Members of the Alpha Omicron chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International and the St. Helens Kiwanis donated sets of dictionaries to students on Friday, Nov. 16. During their classroom visits volunteers passed out books to third-grade students in the entire St. Helens School District. In total, the two organizations helped donate 211 books to third-grade students at McBride, Lewis and Clark and Columbia City elementary schools, as well as Yankton Arthur Academy. Every school year, the two organizations organize the book donation program. Alpha Omicron members select the dictionary to be purchased, while Kiwanis helps pay for the books. At the end of the school year, each student is allowed to keep the donated book and encouraged to keep using it in school.
