Creating a learning environment to foster the ideals of Respect, Responsibility and Citizenship

2012 - 2015


2014 - 2017

AHS Highlights

Throughout the month of March, students from the Alternative High School Service Learning Program, have been visiting the first grade classes at Bret Harte. The students from the Alternative high school developed a 45 minute lesson designed to teach the first graders about respect. Each lesson was introduced with a "Sesame Street" clip about respect, followed by class discussion, and a creative art project. Each first grader was asked to complete a "patch" for the Respect Quilt that depicts how they can show respect. The patches were collected and brought back to the Alternative High School. At the Alternative High School, the students and staff created their own "patch" depicting what respect means to them. All patches were assembled into one quilt. The Respect Quilt hangs in the Alternative High School hallway. A poster of the quilt was printed and given to each of the first grades at Bret Harte.
