Character Counts at MCMS
“Character is who you are when nobody else is looking”
“Character Counts” is a positive behavior initiative designed to recognize students who demonstrate positive character traits within our school. Each week teachers receive tickets to in turn give to students when they observe them performing a good deed (i.e. helping another student, allowing a timid classmate to sit at their lunch table, volunteering to help a teacher, etc.). These students then turn in their tickets at the office to be entered in a weekly/monthly drawing where prizes are awarded. Weekly prizes include ice-cream and food coupons; as well as, skating, movie, mini-golfing, snow-tubing, pool, and YMCA day passes. Monthly prizes include gift cards, t-shirts, Husky bags, and Spikes tickets; as well as, signed memorabilia from Cael Sanderson (PSU wrestling coach) and Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh Steelers). Our ultimate goal is for good behavior to become contagious among the 6th and 7th graders at MCMS!
