PTSA students and officers prepare to surprise November’s Hawk Heroes with gift baskets of goodies.

November 2022 Hawk Heroes Announced

The best part of being a “Hawk Hero” is a front row parking spot near the main entrance, so if you see someone doing something awesome around Alta, nominate them for this award. They may even give you a ride to school.

All students receive a t-shirt, gift cards, and freebies from local businesses. Seniors and juniors get a reserved parking spot for a month while sophomores and freshmen get extra gift cards according to PTSA member Tricia Anderson.

Students and staff can nominate students they see doing good in the school by scanning the QR code for the online form. (See QR code at the end of the article.)
