Profiles in Character
Pleasant View ES

The Pleasant View (PV) Elementary School student leadership team is responsible for the school’s monthly CHARACTER COUNTS! (CC!) Store, CC! Pillar Raffle, communicating and running any activities for CC! Week, and doing skits and interviews for CC! assemblies held at the end of each month. Throughout the month, students can earn CC! tickets for displaying the Pillars of Character and receive tickets from teachers and support staff. At the end of the month, students visit the CC! Store and purchase a variety of fun, useful, and exciting items with their tickets.

Pleasant View teacher Tashima Irving said PV implements a “Culture of Pillar Character,” meaning students need to participate in and outside of the classroom in activities and tasks that promote positive character. She said, “We at PV have made it a priority to implement monthly activities for each pillar in the classroom. We allow students to earn CC! tickets for showing the character they are learning and hearing about, and reward students with awards and Pillar Packs (filled with goodies) for those that stand out amongst the rest."
