On Wednesday, November 13, 2019 Douglas Carl, owner of "A Better Day Salon" at the Lake Forest Park Town Center visited the Lake Forest Park school library to deliver new dictionaries to every fourth grader at Lake Forest Park Elementary School.

Douglas taught students that as fourth graders they are moving from “learning to read” to “reading to learn” and a dictionary is a wonderful tool that can be used for learning at school and home.

He spoke about the importance of using words to solve problems and how he hopes “A Better Day Salon’s” donation can help spread goodwill and knowledge throughout the Lake Forest Park community. Principal Aimee Miner, and Douglas worked together to hand the books out to the thankful students.

Teachers and students look forward to using the dictionaries in the classroom and at home. The Lake Forest Park staff and students are very appreciative of this generous donation and look forward to using the dictionaries.

I was watching my LFP 4th-grade grandson last night when he asked what a word meant. I started to tell him and he said, "WAIT!" He put down his video game controller (!!!) got his new dictionary out of his backpack, and looked the word up. WOW!! Thank you, 'A Better Day Salon'!
