Dear Rotarians Friends who have pledged to this challenge,

The Holliday High School students represented our club at the recent RYLA program at Stephenville. All had a wonderful experience as they went through the memorable leadership training.
 
Past President of Wichita Falls Rotary Club, Lisa Stephens-Musick provided an excellent description of the project that Wichita Falls Rotary Club is planning at Rotary Park, providing playground equipment.
 
Members of the Wichita Falls Rotary Club would like to partner with the Wichita Falls Southwest and the Wichita Falls North Rotary clubs to implement this project. Our club board of directors will consider the project at a future board meeting.

A talk with Joe Clements, principal at Scotland Park Elementary School revealed that the school needed more “student snacks”
 
Member Mike purchased the snacks and Tom S., Mike and Gary met at SPES and delivered the snacks. Afterwards we had a very nice visit with Joe in his office. Joe is retiring in less than a month. He is a great candidate as a new member! He has the heart of a true Rotarian
 
 
On Wednesday Feb. 23rd, members
Tom Sheriff and Mike Crocker
delivered new dictionaries to the
3rd Graders at Scotland Park ES
 
 
 
This annual project provides dictionaries to 3rd graders at our adopted school, Scotland Park Elementary School. The dictionary's are the students to keep. We at Wichita Falls North RC recognize that learning to read is paramount to academic success. Prior to 3rd grade students are learning how to read. In 3rd grade and for the remainder of their academic career, students are reading to learn. A dictionary is a wonderful tool for learning. Even with todays digital tools, teachers tell us that using a dictionary is much more effective in helping the students learn. Some students may come from families that can't afford books at home. Club members are making sure all 3rd graders can enhance their learning opportunities by providing dictionaries.
 
 
Teams of composed of 1 to 4 high school students in
10th through 12th grade will compete by creating a 60 second
video presenting "What the 4 Way Test means to me"
 
The subject of the video "The 4-way test is as it relates to each teams activities, interests, goals and topics of interest such as the pandemic, or any combination thereof" is to be the primary content presented. Contestants will be focusing on an audience that is 15 to 24 years of age. The video needs to include a call-to-action to visit either the Rotary.org website or the Southwestrotary.com website. The video must include use of the Rotary Brand guidelines.
 
 
The Rotary Club of Wichita Falls North is partnering with the
other Rotary and Service Clubs in Wichita County in an initiative
to encourage the wearing of masks in advance of reaching
vaccination levels supportive of “Herd Immunity”.
 
 
Why are we doing this project?
Citizens are getting tired of following the protective measures: wear a mask, social distance, wash hands frequently and minimize our movement in public to necessary activities. COVID-19 will continue to spread till we reach “Herd Immunity” that comes as 75% of the population has been vaccinated. If we wear a mask we can reduce and prevent exposure to the disease for others and ourselves. Otherwise, “People are going to die that don’t need to die.”
 
Mask Up & Save a Life!
