Welcome to Running Creek
Welcome Running Creek Family!
All of us at Running Creek would like to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. I am so thankful you have chosen RCE for your student's academic home.
I am very happy to be a part of the Elizabeth School District! A little bit about me - I have been an educator for many years and have experience in private schools as well as Denver Public Schools and Douglas County School District. I have held the role of teacher, instructional coach, and assistant principal. I have taught every elementary grade level except fourth grade. I grew up surrounded by farmland located in the east-central part of Illinois and attended schools similar to ours in Elizabeth. I moved to Colorado for adventure after graduating from college and have lived here ever since. My husband and I met here and had two amazing children. Our son, Aaron, recently graduated from college and our daughter, Ellie, is beginning her third year of college. My husband passed away a few years ago and, as you can imagine, we are a very close knit family. My children and I live in Parker with our little Poodle mix, Wallace. We love to play games and laugh together.
Public education has been my passion since graduating from college. I am a creative problem solver and one of my greatest desires is for the success of our community. I consider it a privilege to partner with families creating the best educational scenario for each learner. My door is always open and I look forward to getting to know each of you better.
As excited as we all are for school to start, I know our current status with the COVID-19 pandemic is first and foremost on everyone's mind. Your children's and our staff's health and safety are always ESD's primary concern. As the start of school approaches it seems that concerns and expectations related to this virus change daily. That being said, we have done our best to think through each scenario in an attempt to ensure everyone's safety. Accommodations may change as new information is shared by the state, county, or district.
I am excited to begin my second year as your principal at Running Creek. The community has been overwhelmingly open and welcoming. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for the opportunity to support you and your children!
Mrs. Robin Hunt
