Kiwanis Club Celebrates Terrific Kids at Hampstead Hill Academy

Hampstead Hill Academy students were honored for their outstanding achievements at the Kiwanis Terrific Kids celebration on January 25th. 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.
The Terrific Kids Program at Hampstead Hill Academy is sponsored by The Kiwanis Club of East Baltimore, which has served the Southeast Baltimore community for almost 60 years.

Congratulations to our terrific kids and thank you to the Kiwanis Club for making this possible.
