The Calhoun County Community Education Outreach Service organization (formerly Extension Homemakers) along with WV Extension Service will be presenting a six week "Character Counts" program during the after school "Heads Up" program at Pleasant Hill Elementary School.

Character counts deals with six important character traits, those being trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. We will define each pillar of character by using role-play, skits, story time, crafts and other things to impress upon the children how important it is to have good character traits.

The topic for April 5, was trustworthiness. Pat Radabaugh and Marcia Swisher, Pleasant Hill CEOS taught this class. I think they had as much fun as the children did throughout the class. Each child took home a bookmark and several handouts on trustworthiness. The next class will be on April 19 and the topic will be Respect.
