70 kids honored in January 2015 BUG Programs
By Maury Colberg
This is the 13th year that our club has sponsored BUG programs in the Billings public schools. We started in 2003 with McKinley School. In 2004 we added Ponderosa School. We have since added Highland School and Rose Park School. We honored 70 kids in January, 22 at Highland School, 25 at Rose Park School, 10 at Ponderosa School and 13 at McKinley School.
BUG awards were made to qualifying 4th 5th and 6th graders in the schools, although McKinley School now only has 4th and 5th grades. Each kid received a certificate, pencil, sticker, pin and bumper sticker. Following the awards the kids and attending Kiwanians had an ice cream and cookie social.
Group pictures were taken of the kids and given to the schools and each kid.
The awards were made to any student who raised one or more grades from the previous grading period without receiving a reduction in any grade. The principals and teachers continue to thank us for this program.
Thanks for the enthusiastic participation from the club. Kiwanians helping or attending at one or more of the January programs were Pete Taylor, Bill Clagg, Maury Colberg, Dave Rye, Emily Stark, Jim Tarr, Hans Abbey, Leann Zahn, Bob Peterson and Bob Southern (who attended all programs).
Wilcoxson’s Ice Cream still gives us a deal on ice cream bars.
We have BUG programs at all of the schools scheduled for April and June at the end of the next two grading periods and will need member support then.
Thanks to all!!!
