Kiwanis Terrific Kids

Twenty-seven kids at Glenwood Springs Elementary School were awarded the coveted “Terrific Kids” certificate at an awards ceremony on Tuesday, Jan. 21. The Terrific Kids program allows teachers to recognize kids who have demonstrated specific character and behavioral traits during a given month. “Terrific” is an acronym for the traits Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive and Capable. Kiwanis sponsors Terrific Kids programs in several local schools, including St. Stephen’s, Sopris Elementary and Kathryn Senor. Surveys have shown that behavioral problems are reduced by 60-70 percent in schools using the Terrific Kids program, which schools can adapt to their specific needs. For more information, contact Deana Hermanson, Kiwanis president (970-945-8511) or Penny McDill, Kiwanis president-elect (970-319-9684).
