    Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS)

    Character Counts!

    The Six Pillars of Character are ethical values to guide our choices. The standards of conduct that arise out of those values constitute the ground rules of ethics, and therefore of ethical decision-making.


    The Pillars can help us detect situations where we focus so hard on upholding one moral principle that we sacrifice another — where, intent on holding others accountable, we ignore the duty to be compassionate; where, intent on getting a job done, we ignore how.


    In short, the Six Pillars can dramatically improve the ethical quality of our decisions, and thus our character and lives. 




    Hernandez Elementary School Pledge

    The Heroes Pledge is said by our students every day along with the United States Pledge of Allegiance and the State of Texas Pledge of Allegiance. The Heroes Pledge is infused with the character traits used in the Character Counts program we employ to help our students understand what it takes to be a good citizen.
