Alta Eagles SOAR
Safe-we make safe choices
Ownership-we take ownership of our choices
Attitude-we have a good attitude
Respect-we respect others and their feelings
Alta students are held to high standards for behavior and are expected to be SAFE, take OWNERSHIP, have a great ATTITUDE, and be RESPECTFUL or SOAR. Students actively participate in activities teaching them how to SOAR throughout our campus. Students are recognized for positive behavior choices and re-taught behavior expectations as needed. Staff and students work together to maintain a safe school environment where learning takes place.
Each year the Alta PB+IS team meet to write behavior and academic goals based on most current discipline data. This year the team set a behavior goal, an academic goal and an attendance goal. Alta staff believe that missing school is missing out. We value our students and encourage them to attend school regularly.
