Character Counts Week 2018
HENRY-SENACHWINE GRADE AND JUNIOR HIGH CELEBRATE CHARACTER COUNTS WEEK
Henry-Senachwine Grade and Junior High School celebrated Character Counts Week on October 22-26. This year’s theme was “Detecting Good Character”. To start our day, some of the Speech Contest participants shared information about the pillar of the day during the morning announcements.
Each day, students had the opportunity to receive a Character Counts award and put a detective’s magnifying glass up on the pillar of the day. Each day if the school filled up the pillar for that day they would receive a clue about a special surprise for everyone on Friday.
The Character Counts puppets presented a program for the Pre-K through 3rd graders on Monday.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, Henry Police Chief, Steve Maurer, talked to the Kindergarten thru 5th grade classes about the importance of good character.
On Friday, Henry Police Officer, Thomas Danhof, talked to the Junior High Students about several topics which included Cyberbullying.
In Science class the Junior High students spent the week learning about Red Ribbon Week and the harmful effects of drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes. They participated in a poster contest where they shared the information they learned about their topic. On Wednesday, the Science teacher, Mrs. Lawson, had the students volunteer in the lower level classrooms to help with activities.
During Character Counts Week the students showed how caring they are by donating over $250.00 to the Red Cross for Hurricane Relief.
All of the students in the school were treated to a special treat of popcorn on Friday for their “popping good character”. A big thank you goes to the parent volunteers who made and delivered the popcorn; Ashley Fallon, Mandy Swinson, Bridget Diemer, Cindy Stange, Jen Nauman.
