Teachers choose Carley Cline as Character Counts! nominee for March

Third grade teachers at Sharpsburg Elementary have chosen Carley Cline as the March Community Partnership Character Counts! nominee. Betty Stover, Carley's teacher, nominated her for demonstrating the Character Counts! Pillars of Caring and Respect. Mrs. Stover says that Carley is a very compassionate and kind person. She is quick to lend a hand, and is very respectful of others' feelings. When she sees a fellow student struggling, she quickly, but quietly helps. Carley's photo will be on display at the front entrance of the school. Along with her picture, there will be a brief description of the Character Counts! Pillar of Caring and Respect.
