The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club recognized 116 third graders in Scott County for making the BUG Honor Roll the end of the second grading period. To make the BUG Honor Roll (Bring Up Grades) the students must improve at least one grade in at least one subject and not go down in any other subjects. Students earning this recognition are provided a party, a certificate identifying the subject(s) they improved, snacks, prizes and a BUG T-Shirt the first time they make the BUG Honor Roll. This grading period, eight students at Johnson Elementary School improved their grades. BUG Honor Roll students in Ms Meadows’ class are Cohen Long, Isabella White, Arianna King, Zola Hensley and Malakai Cox. BUG Honor Roll students in Ms Rose’s class are Aven Broadus, Bri Bryant and Madison Spencer. Congratulations to each of these students for their hard work and success this grading period. The BUG Program is made possible by the sponsorship of Austin Tri Hawk who also provided the snacks. BUG is an academic incentive program provided by the Kiwanis Club in partnership with Scott County School Districts 1 & 2.
