SOARRS stands for Scholars Outstanding and Always Respectful, Responsible, and Safe. SOARRS represents Hillcrest Eagle Scholars' incentive ticket system that is tied to our six pillars–Respectful, Responsible, Safe, Honest, Tolerant (Appreciating Differences) and Scholarly (Lifelong Learning). As students exhibit these six traits they earn SOARRS cards that are placed into our raffle box in the office.
Each day, one card is pulled from the raffle box to identify a student that will help lead our school-wide morning meeting. On every Friday morning, five students' SOARRS cards are pulled from the raffle box so that those deserving scholars can walk to the office to receive nice prize packs from our school treasure chest.
The adults in the Hillcrest Community keep SOARRS cards ready to acknowledge scholars exemplifying the six pillars throughout the school day–in the morning before school, in the classroom, on the playground at recess, in the lunch pavillions, the library, the computer lab, the auditorium, the main office, and walking about the campus in the desired manner. Wherever students are and whenever they are demonstrating any of the pillars, there's a chance that a nearby adult is observing and will give them a SOARRS card.
