Motto: We Build Bears with Character
The Pleasant Elementary School Staff believes that all students can learn to their fullest potential.
The mission of Pleasant Elementary School is to ensure that all students experience success academically, socially, morally, and physically. Pleasant Elementary School staff members utilize current, standards-based curriculum, and instructional strategies/practices to improve academic achievement. Staff members use Character Counts® as a common language to develop students' abilities in demonstrating character and responsibility for themselves and their community. Staff, parents, and students work well together to provide a climate that empowers everyone in an effort to maximize learning.
Our school is one of ten elementary schools in the Tulare City School District. Since we opened our doors in 1987, we have continued our commitment to build a learning community comprised of highly effective staff, strong leadership, engaged students, and active parents and families. We all share in the responsibility to ensure that all of our students develop positive character and demonstrate academic growth and success each and every year.
Pleasant Elementary is a Character Counts® school. We not only teach our students how to show good character, we also practice often. To maximize the results of this program, we have developed a guide (found at the side of the page) to help everyone remember what good character looks like.
Consistency is key! Our students do a great job of participating in Character Counts® at school. We ask that you also discuss and practice the six pillars of the program at home.
American Heart Association - Jump Rope for Heart
Lighthouse Rescue Mission - Coins for Caring
Tulare Masonic Lodge - Canned Food Drive
Tulare Police Department - Toys for Tots
United for Good
We agree! An important reason why our students do so well at Pleasant Elementary is due to our team spirit. Each year, our staff, students, and parents enter into a compact (see sidebar) promising to work closely together, share responsibility, and play an important role in helping our Pleasant Bears shine.
