Bay Area Republican Women present students with Constitutions and Dictionaries Bay Area Republican Women (BARW) continued an over 35-year community service of contributing to the education of area school children this year. Teams of club members delivered Constitutions to fifth graders five Clear Lake area elementary schools in September. Last week, they completed delivery of dictionaries to over 1,000 third graders in 10 Bay Area elementary schools. Schools receiving the books include Ed White, Stewart, McWhirter, Whitcomb, Clear Lake, Falcon Pass, Ward, Brookwood, Armand Bayou and Northpoint Elementary.


Club Literacy Chairman Patti Stockman said the club's presentations before Constitution Day, was particularly important in this election year. "We want to do our part to help students learn that our Founding Fathers signed this most influential document in American history."


Brookwood Elementary third grade lead teacher Susan Smith reflected teachers' and students' appreciation of the dictionaries. "The kids just love them! What a generous and useful gift. The wealth of information included in them is amazing."


"This is one way our club gives back to our local community," said Stockman. "We are committed to the development of informed and responsible leaders of tomorrow."
