Pima Butte Elementary School held its last Student of the Month Assembly for this school year on Wednesday. Students, teachers and parents were treated to special presentations by Andrea Leyvas’s second grade class, as well as Janet Stensgard’s fourth grade students.
Both groups focused on Pima Butte’s well-known Character Counts program. The character traits it teaches include respect, trustworthiness, responsibility and citizenship. These same traits help to determine which students will receive the Student of the Month awards.

Fourth graders in Ms. Stensgard’s class read famous quotes that represented the Character Counts traits.
As cameras flashed, award-winning students, smiling from ear to ear, received their certificates. Teachers, speaking about their Student of the Month selections, used phrases such as “good character,” “always willing to learn,” and “works hard to do his or her best” to describe each student.
