The Terrific Kids Program at the Dallas Elementary School was designed to be a positive school-wide character-building program. Each month, one or two students are nominated from their homeroom to be Terrific Kids for the month. The program will run through June 2013. Terrific kids is an acronym for T-Thoughtful, E-Enthusiastic, R-Responsible, R-Respectful, I-Inquisitive, F-Friendly, I-Inclusive, and C-Capable. Every month a group of Terrific Kids will work together a few times that month on community-wide or school-wide programs.
