The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club hosted a BUG celebration for twelve third graders in Mrs Stamper’s class at Austin ES for improving their grades this grading period.  BUG (Bringing Up Grades) is a Kiwanis signature program designed to provide incentives to students to improve their grades and study habits.  A student must improve at least one grade in at least one subject and not go down in any other subjects to make the BUG Honor Roll.  Students who make the BUG Honor Roll receive a party with snacks, prizes, a certificate identifying the subject(s) they improved and a BUG T-Shirt the first time they make the BUG Honor Roll.  BUG Honor Roll students recognized were Caleb Wooten, Gensin Caudill, Maggie Bennett, Nolan Sherrard, James Johnson, Camden Snyder, Lynei Ramage, Bayleejo Terry, Kelsi Groenenboom, Preston Johnson, Levi Blocker and Kaidance McCormick This is the second year the Kiwanis and Austin ES have partnered with the BUG Program.  BUG is offered to all public elementary schools in Scott County.  Two hundred seven students were recognized the first grading period in Scott County, sixty-nine of those at Austin ESBUG is made possible with the generous support of the Youth Grantmaking Council who provided the BUG T-Shirts and the Scottsburg High School Key Club.
