The Character Counts Show
Engaging elementary school presenter Obediah Thomas (from the “Razzle Bam Boom” performing company) performs a CHARACTER COUNTS! assembly using humor, music, and storytelling to educate and motivate elementary school students about trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship and bullying. This show aligns well with a school’s Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program.

I just wanted to say thank you again for the wonderful assembly. I was very impressed with how your character message fit perfectly with our school-wide character goals and was equally impressed with the high level of engagement all the students showed during the assembly.”
– Guido Magliato, Principal, Murray Manor Elem., San Diego, Calif.
“A very, very, very, very great show.”
– Mrs. Mower, Principal, Beech Elem. Fontana, Calif.
“Admittedly, I was a little nervous of how my 7th and 8th grade students would receive your performance (I knew my 5th and 6th would love it). To my surprise, the 7th and 8th grade loved it! I got great feedback from all in attendance.”
– Christopher Roberts, Gilmore Middle School, Grass Valley, Calif.
“Obediah is a very gifted performer! The students were so engaged and the format of the assembly helped them to remember the Pillars of Character better than any Guidance lesson I have done with students. If you need any recommendations to other schools, I would be happy to be a reference.”
– Dina M. Soriano, MS, NCC, School Counselor/TOSA, Trillium Creek Primary, West Linn, Oregon
