The Kiwanis Club of Baker County recognized Terrific Kids for the fourth quarter of the school year recently.
The motto of Kiwanis International is “Serving the Children of the World,” and to that end they sponsor programs for children of all ages. Terrific Kids is a program to promote character development and good citizenship.
Each quarter each teacher is asked to select one student from his or her class who exhibits at least one of the Terrific Kids traits: Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive and Capable.
Those selected receive goodie bags with items supplied by local businesses, individuals and organizations.
