Jog-A-Thon fundraiser was a smashing success!

After the laps were run and the pledges collected, the PTC sponsored jog-a-thon brought in a fantastic amount of donations! $11,800.
Alicia Alonso coordinated the jog-a-thon and deserves a big Thank You for putting it all together. The Alta Sierra students deserve a big Thank You for running and then collecting pledges. Of course, our community and families deserve the biggest Thank You of all for supporting our school.

Upload your pictures for the yearbook.

The success of the yearbook comes from photos being uploaded to our TreeRing site. TreeRing is a site that allows parents to upload pictures that they take at school events. These pictures can then be considered for inclusion in the yearbook. Download the TreeRing app for iphone or android today.

Principal's Message

Congratulations to our Students of the Month!  Teachers and staff select specific character traits, PBIS expectations, and a core subject for which they choose a reward recipient.  Or two.
The character traits for the first 6 weeks of school were Responsibility and Listening Skills.  The core academic subject selected was Math.
Each student selected was awarded a personalized certificate in the presence of their peers. Teachers added words of thanks and praise for each student selected as well.   We appreciate each and every student accomplishment and want to thank students for their hard work.
