Noon Kiwanis recognized 44 McDermott Elementary third graders Wednesday morning for success in the BUG Program. The students enjoyed a special lunch from a local fast-food establishment to celebrate their accomplishments. Kiwanis member Richard Lamon explained the process of the BUG Program and how students can get involved. “The BUG Program stands for Bring Up Grades,” Lamon said. “It is sponsored by the international foundation. What it amounts to is if a student brings up a full letter grade between grading periods, or if they have a straight A and don’t drop it or if they mentor another student and they bring up their grades – all three categories qualify for the BUG program.” Lamon said the past three grading periods since the program was implemented, that the number of students succeeding through the program has risen from 23 students the first grading period, 38 students for the second to 44 on Wednesday.
