On September 20, Rotarians, local community volunteers and law enforcement officers delivered dictionaries to third graders at a local elementary school.  They described their occupations and professions to the students and emphasized the importance of reading.  The Sacramento Police Department donated two bicycles to encourage the students to use their dictionaries to improve their reading skills.
The dictionary delivery is one component of a larger school-wide project, ROARing Readers.  The students' literacy improvement is tracked through the year, and literacy improvement, including improvement over the summer break, is rewarded with prizes at three assemblies throughout the school year.
 
 

Today, members of the Rotary Club of North Sacramento and officers from the Sacramento Police Department helped students celebrate their accomplishments in improving their literacy scores.  The "grand champion" increased her reading scores by almost FOUR grade levels. 

 

As they were working to improve their reading scores throughout the year, the students had no idea what the "grand prizes" would be. The top two "reading champions" in two categories (1st through 3rd grade and 4th through 6th grade) received bicycles. The "third place" readers received Razor scooters.  This project was funded, in part, by a Rotary Foundation Community Grant.

 

We are continuing this project next year. We hope the success and enthusiasm of the students will incentivize them to read over the summer and to continue to improve their reading scores next year and beyond.

 

 

Members of the Rotary Club of North Sacramento attended the Police and Sheriff's Memorial Annual Remembrance Ceremony.  The RCNS was a major donor and one of members of the RCNS, Past President Dennis Tsuboi, designed the memorial.  Unfortunately, another fallen officer, Mark Stasyuk, was recognized.  Deputy Stasyuk was killed while responding to a routine call on September 17, 2018.

 

 

 

 

 
September 21 is the United Nations International Day of Peace.  Create awareness by performing at least one random act of kindness for a person of another race, religion, ethnicity, socio-economic class, or political ideology.  Share your experience with fellow-Rotarians at your next meeting.
