Character Counts


Character Counts at Stone Corral Elementary

This school year our mighty Eagles are becoming kids of character. A kid of character is a person who is a good person, someone to look up to and is admired. Knows the difference between right and wrong and always tries to do what is right. Sets a good example for everyone. Makes the world a better place. Lives according to the “Six Pillars of Character”:


The Six Pillars of Character embodies other values. Our values shape our attitude and motivate our actions.

As part of the character count curriculum, here at stone corral each student receives a lesson about each pillar. In the first week of every month, our School Counselor (Miss. Haro) provides a 15-30-minute lesson during computer lab hour to educate the students about the traits the pillar obtains and the meaning as to why these traits are important to strengthen their character. Students are then given according to their grade level an assignment; the assignment can consist of a read aloud with follow up questions or a worksheet to help comprehend the whole lesson. Once the students received the lesson about the pillar, students can then be nominated for a Character Card.  Character Cards are given by supporting staff only. Supporting staff includes: PE coaches, Librarian, Intervention Teachers, Teacher Aids, Office Aides, etc., each staff receives 10 Character Cards (Image below) every month. Character Nominees are selected because of an act of good behavior took place on campus. The staff then writes the student name, grade level, circle the corresponding pillar the student demonstrated and give a brief description why this student astonishing behavior was acknowledged. We acknowledge nominees during our student of the month assembly.  All nominees are separated by grade level, one student per class and then randomly selected during our SOM assembly. When students are selected during the assembly they are awarded a medallion with the color ribbon according to the pillar of the month, a pencil and attend lunch bunch with Miss. Haro. They are then taken a picture and it is displayed in front of our school on the glass board The glass board remains with the image and the celebrated pillar of the month (Image below), each month the glass board is updated.
