Character Counts is a popular nationwide program with six pillars of character, for character development.
The fun included dressing up each day of the week; wearing purple on Monday, crazy socks Tuesday, green on Wednesday, pink on Thursday and wearing orange today, to demonstrate the character counts of good citizenship, respect, responsibility, caring and fairness, respectively.
The fun will continue next week with Red Ribbon Week.
On Monday, students will “Dream big and forget drugs” by dressing in pajamas. Tuesday is a dress-for-success and future career day; Wednesday, crazy hair day to demonstrate being crazy over being drug free; Thursday is twin day, symbolizing friends don’t let friends do drugs; and on Friday, Oct. 31, they will dress in costumes or sports to show drugs don’t scare them.
In addition to dressing up, the students have participated in a door-decorating contest, had an assembly, participated in lunchtime activities, and earned prizes.
At Thursday’s assembly, four teachers — Pam Hulse, Pat Manning, Angie Shimer and Theresa Armas — agreed to cut off their hair for cancer patients.
