For Easter 2014, The Rotary Club of South Jacksonville prepared Easter Baskets for the kindergarten class of San Jose Elementary School.

On Tuesday, January 21, 2014, The Rotary Club of South Jacksonville held it’s second annual speech competition.  Six intramural contest winners from the following high schools participated in the contest:  Bishop Kenny, The Bolles School, Douglas Anderson, Episcopal School, Stanton Prep and Wolfson High School.

Left to Right:  Erik Sampayo, Bishop Kenny; Ru Miles, Wolfson High School; President Harlan Bost; Summer Cuevas, Douglas Anderson; Desirae Lee, Stanton Prep; John Michael Currie, Episcopal School; Garrett Bennett, The Bolles School; and Doug Matthews, Event Chair.

And the winners are........

1st prize scholarship $2000 - John Michael Currie, Episcopal School

2nd prize scholarship $1000 - Desirae Lee, Stanton College Prep

The other 4 students each received a $500 scholarship

The week of December 2, 2013 was Dictionary Distribution Week!  More than 20 club members distributed dictionaries to over 900 students at the following seven elementary schools:  Kings Trail, Greenfield, Spring Park, Hendricks Avenue, San Jose, Southside Estates and Holiday Hill.  The children were very excited to get their own dictionary.  In the words of one student, "We get to keep this!  Forever???"

The 3rd grade students at Spring Park Elementary were so excited to receive their  very own dictionaries. Some of our students have never received a book of any sort that they could call their own. We here at Spring Park would like to thank you and your team for providing our 3rd grade students with dictionaries and taking an invested interest in our students' education. The affect  those dictionaries will have on our  students will last a life time. Again a sincere thanks for investing in our students here at Spring  Park Elementary.
