What is the P.U.G. (Pick Up Grades) Program?
The Blackfalds Bulldogs & Blackfalds Bulldogs Foundation are pleased to announce a new and unique program, the P.U.G. (Pick Up Grades) Program! The program is designed for middle schools in Central Alberta and will involve social and academic goal setting.
Some of the Blackfalds Bulldogs players have been participating in classroom engagement and reading programs with the pre-kindergarten to grade five students and most recently with the mentorship programs. The Bulldogs understand the importance of education and want to recognize and show appreciation for every single student who improves academically, emotionally and socially through a school year.
In the future we want the Bulldogs players to come into the classrooms and help the students’ set goals and then help them work towards those goals once a month until the season is completed. We are confident the students will understand the importance of improving throughout a school year. Part of the program will be recognizing ALL students who show improvement between reporting periods with our P.U.G. night at one of the Blackfalds Bulldogs home games.
