What is Terrific Kids?

Terrific Kids is a student-recognition program that promotes character development, self-esteem and perseverance. 
“Terrific” is an acronym for Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive and Capable.

Students work with their classroom teacher to establish goals to improve behavior, peer relationships, attendance or school work.  All students who achieve their goals after a specified time are recognized as Terrific Kids. Recognition includes being pinned as a Terrific Kid; presentation of certificates and other giveaways.

The Kiwanis Club of Ellicott City currently sponsors Terrific Kids program at one elementary school:

Bryant Woods Elementary School
Kiwanis Advisor:  Andrew Wong
