Eagle Wings
Students who are following the
school rules can be recognized for
their efforts by earning Eagle
Wings. They are given directly to
the student along with verbal
praise. Eagle Wings can be
exchanged for incentives such as
prizes from the PTA sponsored
prize cart or classroom privileges.


Soaring Eagle Grams
Soaring Eagle Grams are awarded
to students for going above and
beyond. They are recognized
during the morning announcements.



Soaring Eagle
Celebration

We celebrate those students who
have been safe, responsible and
respectful throughout the entire
quarter with a Soaring Eagle
Celebration. Some past
celebrations have included a dance
party, Amazing Race, Wipeout,
paper airplane contest and PJs
movie extravaganza.
