Third Graders Receive Dictionaries

Dictionaries     On Wednesday, September 9th, the morning was full of excitement at Irwin County Elementary School as all the 3rd grade students received their very own dictionaries. Irwin County Family Connection and the Ocilla Rotary Club collaborate each year to provide the dictionaries.
