Terrific Kids

This program has operated since 2002. All ten elementary schools in the District have participated. During the school year, over 500 students are recognized in special school assemblies for their exemplary school citizenship. The bumper stickers you see around town that read “I’m the Proud Parent of a TERRIFIC Kid” are one part of the awards package Kiwanis presents to each TERRIFIC Kid.
