Third Grade Receives Dictionaries

Grade 3 dictionaries
Wednesday, October 5, was "Third Grade Dictionary Celebration" day at ICES. Each year, the Ocilla Rotary Club and Irwin County Family Connection provide each ICES third grader with a student's dictionary. Designed especially for young students, the dictionary also contains other information such as the 50 states, presidents, the solar system, etc. The students and teachers were all very appreciative of the dictionaries.
