Our Community Service Projects

We want our students to learn the importance of getting out in the community and making a difference in the lives of people around them. We participate in several different activities throughout the year that help students gain responsibility and become active participants in the community that is such a huge part of our school setting.


American Heart Association - Jump Rope for Heart

Every year in February, heart health month, students raise funds for the American Heart Association. In return, the students receive prizes from the American Heart Association. Every student on campus then participates in the school jump-a-thon to raise awareness about healthy living choices.

Lighthouse Rescue Mission - Coins for Caring

Pleasant school collects change donations from students and families. All the donations benefit the Lighthouse Rescue Mission in Tulare.

Penny Wars

During the school year, students and staff participate in raising money for the school library through penny wars. Each classroom has a bin for collection. For one week, students bring in money to help the school purchase new books for the library.

Tulare Masonic Lodge - Canned Food Drive

Collaborating with the Tulare Masonic Lodge, our students and their families bring in canned foods for local agencies in need. This event happens in the winter months, normally in conjunction with the holidays.

Tulare Police Department - Toys for Tots

During the month of December, students and staff can drop off new, unwrapped toys in the office. The office has a bin for collection and the Tulare Police Department picks up all donations. These toy donations go to needy families in the area for Christmas gifts.

United for Good

This year Pleasant Elementary has teamed up with elementary schools throughout the city of Tulare to support Sweet Nectar Society. UFG supports Sweet Nectar Society in providing cost-free photography sessions to children with a serious illness, disability, or injury. The images are given to each family signifying the hope, courage, and strength of their child. Check out their website sweetnectarsociety.org
