When Betty Berryman spoke to Karen Taylor's third-grade class at Fannie Bush Elementary, she had one question: "How many students would really like to be a bug?"
Every hand immediately shot up in the air.
Berryman is the Partners in Education coordinator for Clark County Community Education, and she presented information this morning to both third-grade classes at Fannie Bush about a new program, Bringing Up Grades (B.U.G.).
Bringing Up Grades is sponsored by the Winchester and Clark County Kiwanis clubs and offers incentives to all students who improve their grades. Students who already have straight A's can partner with their classmates who need extra help.
Every grading period, Kiwanis members will come in and recognize students on the B.U.G. honor roll and give away prizes such as bug pencils, rulers or pendants.
