- Community Schools
The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To this end, we are updating our reopening plan to begin the school year in a fully online-learning model for all students which will continue through the last week of September. All students in grades 1-12 will begin on August 18, kindergarten students will begin on August 20.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con este fin, estamos actualizando nuestro plan de reapertura para comenzar este año escolar en un modelo de instrucción completamente en línea para estudiantes hasta finales de septiembre. Hemos actualizado el calendario para que todos los estudiantes en los grados 1-12 comiencen el 18 de agosto, los estudiantes de jardin de infantes comenzarán el 20 de agosto.
Hello! My name is Renee Quijas (key-hoss). I have been teaching in the St.Vrain Valley School District, and Red Hawk Elementary, since 2014. I began my teaching career in 1986 after graduating from Arizona State University. I taught Elementary Physical Education from 1986-1996. During that time I earned my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education, married my sweetheart Ray, and started a family. Ray’s job has afforded us the opportunity to move and experience different parts of the United States. During that time, I took time off from teaching to spend time with our growing family.
Ray and I moved to Colorado in 2003. We live right here in Erie with our three daughters, Sophia, Micah, Sloane, and our dog Wrigley. After our move to Colorado, I was ready to pursue my love of teaching once again. From 2006-2014, I taught at the Wee School preschool in Erie. (There are many students here at Red Hawk who know me as “Miss Renee!”)
In my free time I love to cook, exercise, read, travel in our vintage RV, spending time with my family, and hanging out on our front porch after a busy week! I feel extremely privileged to be a part of the Red Hawk community, and look forward to another amazing year of learning!
