Bringing up grades is a cause for celebration at Broadmoor Elementary.

The B.U.G. program created by Kiwanis Club of Lafayette is focused on helping children learn leadership skills through academic achievement.

A pep rally was held at Broadmoor on Wednesday to award students who made progress during the nine weeks. Those students received prizes and gifts for their efforts.

Students also won prizes by participating in contest during the pep rally today. More than 60 students were recognized.

Vance Lanier, Chairman of the B.U.G. Program, said that they "try to get a child to concentrate on bringing up a grade, not necessary their entire curriculum, but...committing to saying, 'I'm going to do better in this course.'"
