Rome Middle School students were recognized by Rome Rotary this week as part of their Terrific Kid Program. Students who attended lunch with Rotarians were presented with certificates for excellence in academics and behavior at Rome Middle School. Superintendent Louis Byars was also in attendance to show his appreciation for these outstanding students in Rome City Schools. Those honored include Cai Sabino, Karen Reano-Flores, Jasmin Cruz-Duque and Darrien Blanchard.
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; a pizza, ice cream or other food-themed party; and presentation of certificates and other giveaways.
