BUGs: Bringing Up Grades – Developing leaders through academic achievement.
Children will be recognized at each grading period at a special event with a certificate with their name and it will be posted on the BUG Honor Roll. Each student that Brings Up their Grade in at least one subject gets a BUGS pencil, magnet, ruler or zipper pull presented in front of their classmates. Those that make the A & B Honor Roll also get a Certificate signed by the school Principal & Kiwanis. The A & B Honor Roll students are eligible by drawing to win a bicycle from Kiwanis. They will be competing against their own personal best, not against other students. Set a goal to improve in one or more subjects. Straight-A students are eligible too. We celebrate their success. Bring up one grade or keep the rest of their grades the same. The first grading period sets the starting point. They then have the opportunity to be honored as a BUG recipient.
The Kiwanis Club of Arlington awards a girls & boys bike each grading period to those that achieve the A & B honor roll.
