One of Rotary's core values is literacy. To this end, and for a generation of students in the Commack and Kings Park school districts, the Commack-Kings Park Rotary Club has presented a real dictionary, in book form, to every student in both school districts when they reach the third grade.  Having done the project for over 12 years, it's safe to say that every child who went through the district from K-12 at any time in the recent past has received theirs. Dictionaries are more than just lists of words. They are a gateway into concepts and ideas, and a valuable tool to help think and write properly in both form and content.
