Hudtloff Middle School students examine their new classroom novel sets as Lakewood Rotary Club President Greg Rediske (center), Hudtloff English Department Chair Mary Carlisle (right) and Hudtloff Principal Moureen David (far right) look on with apparent glee.
Mrs. Carlisle explained that these sets would be used in a variety of ways to enrich and enhance instruction in the 8th grade classes for years to come.
Mark Blanchard (left), Rotary Club Literacy Committee chair, spearheaded the project, saying, “Literacy is a main focus for Rotary efforts and we enjoy facilitating projects put forward by energetic and enthusiastic teachers and principals. Educational excellence is a community goal and we all have a part to play.”
Lakewood Rotary meets every Friday noon at the Tacoma Golf and Country Club.
