Students in the Bringing Up Grades program at Ridgecrest Elementary School surround school Guidance Counselor Patti Kirk during a party hosted by the Largo/Mid-Pinellas Kiwanis Club May 30.
LARGO – The Largo/Mid-Pinellas Kiwanis Club celebrated with the children in the Bringing Up Grades, or BUG, program at Ridgecrest Elementary May 30.

Twelve of the program’s participants received certificates for bringing up their grades that day. The Kiwanis Club invited all program participants to a party with snacks and drinks. However, they gave out prizes only to those students who raised their grades by at least letter grade in one or more subjects on their last report card, as an incentive to work harder on their studies.

The Kiwanis Club, a worldwide service organization, sponsors the BUG program at other Pinellas County Schools

The Largo Kiwanis Club is accepting new members, and meets twice a month: for a breakfast on first Fridays, 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., at Royal Palms, 200 Lake Ave. NE., Largo, and for dinner on second Thursdays 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., at Roosterfish Grill, 776 Missouri Ave. also in Largo. The main fundraising and service event of the club is Pawfest, a carnival for children and dogs in April each year.
