The goal at Alta Vista Elementary School is to help all students become productive, responsible citizens who will adapt and grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically in a changing world.
Volunteering is very important at Alta Vista. The Eagle’s Volunteer Center located in the school’s library for the students, parents, and community volunteers. It offers opportunities for parents and community members to become an integral part of the school by making a difference in student performance, motivation, and attitude towards school. With over 200 volunteers that come to help a year Alta Vista Elementary has received recognition for this volunteer program and many schools around Sarasota are trying to replicate the school’s program because of it’s success.
Alta Vista Elementary
At Alta Vista Elementary they believe in positive reinforcement to keep the students motivated to continue their good behavior and good work in class. With their “Caught You Being Good” program they award students caught going above and beyond with “Caught You Being Good” coins that they collect or trade in for items in the school store. This is awarded for things students do such as: practicing good citizenship, quality work, kindness, respect, or courtesy.
The Eagle’s Renaissance Awards Program awards their students for showing their Eagle Spirit! During these award ceremonies, Alta Vista’s staff and students celebrate attendance, citizenship, and academic achievement.
The Alta Vista Eagle’s cheerleaders lead them on in cheers and music is played throughout the ceremonies.
