May Terrific Kids

May 21, 2019

Terrific Kids is a student-recognition program that promotes character development, self-esteem and perseverance. Each classroom teacher nominates one student from their class that shows TERRIFIC actions.

On Thursday, May 16, 2019 the students were called to the office and given by Kiwanis Organization. The McClernand FACE Team members visited the homes of these students and took pictures with yard signs. The signs were left in the yard for a week to celebrate our McClernand Terrific Kids at their homes.

“TERRIFIC” is an acronym for 

  • Thoughtful,

  • Enthusiastic,

  • Respectful,

  • Responsible,

  • Inclusive,

  • Friendly,

  • Inquisitive and 

  • Capable.
