Character Counts

Schools across Alabama are continuing their celebrations of Character Counts week. It was no different when I stopped in at Kitty Stone Elementary School in Jacksonville yesterday. Principal Bob Phillips was leading me to a math classroom for today's piece on the 40th anniversary of the handheld calculator during a morning class change. Entire classes paraded by and flashed their hands toward Phillips in a "C" shape to let him know they had made it through the week with no disciplinary actions by their teacher.

As declared by Gov. Bob Riley, Character Counts week focuses students on the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.
