Turtle Point hosts BBUG program
It’s BBUG time again at Turtle Point. We are inviting parents and guardians of K through 5th grade students to submit an application for the BBUG (Building Backyard Urban Greenspaces) Program.
Why should you be a part of this program? Because it is fun, educational, and free! The BBUG Program is an innovative project that trains parents to take their children outside and learn about our natural world. The BBUG Program is an effort to get children off the couch and unplugged - from TV, video games and computers - and into the natural world. Children that spend time outside show fewer symptoms associated with ADHD, maintain a healthier body weight, are less likely to become depressed, and score higher on standardized tests. As BBUG participants, you will receive a backpack filled with equipment - worth over $200 - absolutely free. All we ask is that you commit to USE the equipment with your child and keep records of your projects for the BBUG Committee to review during the first year.
If you would like an application emailed to you, please send an email to turtlepoint@escambiak12.net with “BBUG” in the subject line. Call (251) 296-3401 to get an application by mail or to pick one up. Space is LIMITED. We will be accepting applications for the BBUG Program through Feb. 8.
