Registration is now open for the 2024 Social-Emotional Learning Summit, which will be held Saturday, May 4 at SCICON in Springville.
Teams of adults and student leaders are encouraged to attend. “We invite Tulare County educators and student leaders to learn together how they can strengthen student voice on campus and strengthen connections between their school, students, and families,” said Lisa Lemus, the event coordinator. “Throughout the day, you’ll hear from various school teams on the programs they’ve created to affect engagement and the social-emotional climates of their campuses. The presenting schools represent the work of upper elementary, middle, and high school teams, so there’s something for everyone.”

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."
