HOUSTON, September 28, 2020 (Newswire.com) - As students head back to school for in-person learning, each third-grade student at Terrace Elementary recently received a new dictionary sponsored by Wallis Bank as part of the Spring Branch ISD’s Dictionary Project.
Started in 2004, the Dictionary Project gives organizations and individuals in the community the opportunity to help provide a dictionary for every third-grade student each school year in SBISD. For many students, this is the very first book they can call their own. As COVID-19 continues to disrupt the academic school year, these dictionaries can also be a useful tool for these students.
For the past four years, this is just one of the few ways Wallis Bank has been involved with the local school district and the Bank's ongoing commitment to give back to the community.
