Kiwanis BUG Program - Bring Up Grades at Templeton Elementary School
Niehoff, Ben
BUG stands for “Bring Up Grades” and we recognize those third graders who have raised at least one of their grades, while not allowing any others to fall from one grading period to the next. We recently had fifty-one students qualify this grading period. We brought “goodie” bags filled with BUG materials like bumper stickers, pencils, goodies and BUG stickers. We provided thirteen large cheese pizzas and bottles of water for the winners. After the “pizza” party, each of the BUG winners received their certificate acknowledging their achievements. We look forward to it every year, and it was another great time at Templeton! Thanks to David Pillar for the initial start up funds and Vanessa McClary for donating all of the BUG supplies including the new bumper stickers!
