Character counts at Keene

| February 20, 2014

KEENE – Keene Elementary students are focusing on more than book work this year.

“We want to teach them about character and integrity,” said Principal Matt Colvin. “I want them to know what it means to be things like trustworthy and respectful.”

When students walk into the building they immediately see signs reminding them of these characteristics. Quote boards sharing positive messages also are scattered throughout the school.

“I’m hoping that the kids and even the adults can read these and have it help them with a situation they are going through,” Colvin said.

Parents had the opportunity to see the positive messages spread throughout the school during the recent family reading night. They also were able to enjoy hot chocolate and cookies with their children.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
