At L. O. Kimberly Elementary School, students who raised their grades during the last grading period are recognized through the Bring Up Grades (B.U.G.) Program. A B.U.G. student has also been identified by his or her classroom teacher as one who improved academically and made strides in their work habits, persistence and dedication to assignments.
The B.U.G. students received recognition on the B.U.G. student bulletin board, and were rewarded with a light reception of fresh fruit, juice and teacakes. During the award presentation, the students received a certificate, ruler, pencil, button and a coupon to a local restaurant.
L.O. Kimberly has dedicated volunteers from Atlanta’s first Kiwanis Club (K-Kids), which sponsors the B.U.G. Program.
“We appreciate the attention they give to our students,” said Everett Jolly, the K-Kids sponsor and media specialist at Kimberly. “Their efforts make a difference in our students because they encourage our students to try new things and be aware of the decisions they make on a daily basis.”
