Mission: By providing hope and positive vision, Optimists bring out the best in kids!
We purchase dictionaries for each third grade child in southern Jefferson County in both public and private schools. Volunteers label, sort, and deliver the dictionaries to the schools in the fall. We distribute approximately 1200 dictionaries annually!
Thank you to the Jefferson County Leader Newspaper for sharing this article in the Festus School Insert to the newspaper!
Here is Mary Hatfield (L) presenting the dictionaries to Mariann Jones (R), Principal of Good Shepherd Catholic School.
