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 they can spend in our Eagle Student Store that opens on every other Tuesday at recess.
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.
