MSAD 68 Dictionary Day

Friday October 22nd will be a “big” day for third grade students from SeDoMoCha as they start their day by boarding a bus for a short field trip to the Valley Grange Hall in Guilford. While the primary purpose of the trip is to receive their own personal dictionaries, they’ll also learn  a bit about our agricultural history–including the Grange’s relationship to our mail system of R.F.D. (Rural Free Delivery).

Coming Soon!

The goal of the program is to assist third grade students to complete the school year as good writers, active readers and creative thinkers by providing them with their own personal dictionaries. The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and home for years to come. This will be the Grange’s fourth year providing dictionaries to SeDoMoCha third graders.

Grange members planning to help with this exciting, fun-filled day should plan to be at the Grange Hall between 8:30 AM and 9:00 AM. Parents with home-schooled third graders are welcome to attend or to contact the school to receive a dictionary.
