Editor’s Note: The terrific program “Terrific Kids” from the the South County Kiwanis is on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic and schools limiting visitors, but we thought we’d look back on some of the honorees from past years.
These Trautwein Elementary School students in the Mehlville School District were named Terrific Kids of the Month in March 2019 by the Kiwanis Club of South County. They were honored for their hard work and great improvement in effort, reading skills or work habits.
The students are selected by their teachers as having shown terrific improvement in academic performance, attendance, behavior, or some other aspect of their school experiences.
