72 Students Get the Bug

Hasbrouck Heights /Teterboro Kiwanis Club

Seventy-two students in Grades 4 and 5 of our local school received the BUG Award from the Kiwanis Club of Hasbrouck Heights and Teterboro.

The Bug Program (Bring Up Grades) is a program designed to encourage students to bring up one or more grades one level in English, Reading, Language Arts and Mathematics without going down in any of these subjects.

These students received a "BUG" pin to wear, a pencil and a certificate to take home. Students who receive straight "A’s" in these subjects will receive an Excellent Eagle Certificate or a Laudable Leopard Certificate from their principal.

Forty-three fourth graders and twenty-nine fifth graders received the "BUG" award.

Four students raised their grades in three subjects; eighteen in two subjects; and fifty in one subject.

The home rooms where the most "BUG" awards were awarded were ten students from Mrs. Incognito’s Fourth Grade in Euclid School and ten students from Mrs. Dussault’s Fourth Grade in Lincoln School.

The Kiwanis Club will continue this program for each marking period for the remainder of this school year. Kiwanis President Barbara Smith and Treasurer Peter Gallo made the presentations. ###
