Chracter Counts has been at OTHS for twelve years.

As sponsors of Character Counts Club (Mrs. Swords, Mrs. Hiland and Mrs. Rios) we are very excited to include students in spearheading change at OTHS!  Character Counts club will be taking on many topics this year some of which are:  Instilling CHARACTER COUNTS and the 6 pillars through out our school, Anti-Bullying awareness and the continuation of "Catching You With Character"!  We are all very excited and have great plans for the school year!

If you are student who would like to be a part of positive change at OTHS, please see one of us or attend our CCC meetings. Character Counts Club will try to meet twice a month on Thursdays during homeroom.  
Feel free to share your ideas and concerns with us anytime!
