Mrs. Vicki Cirbo
Hello! Welcome to 5th grade! I am so excited to start the 2017-2018 school year with you! My name is Vicki Cirbo and I am returning to Running Creek’s 5th grade team! This is my 6th year at RCE!
I live right here in Elizabeth! My husband, Justin, graduated from EHS and always wanted to raise his family here. We both love the community and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! We have one child who keeps us very busy! As a family, we enjoy golfing, hiking, reading, and walking our very silly dog, Maya.
I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with my degree in Psychology and a minor in Biology. After graduating, I started working at an elementary school and fell in love with the kids and education! I went back to school and received my master's degree in Elementary Education.
I started my teaching career at RCE 8 years ago in 4th grade. I fell in love with the kids and their families instantly. After teaching 4 years, I decided to be a stay at home mom with our little guy. I stayed home for 3 years and loved it!
First Day Reminders:
- Before school, students will drop their belongings off in the hallway and go to the gym for Active Jags. I will meet your child in the gym before school starts and walk with them to the classroom when the bell rings.
- 5th grade does not have a planned snack time; however, I encourage your child to bring a healthy snack as we transition back into school mode!
- Please discuss with your child your after school plans in the morning, so they know how they will be getting home on the first day.
- Our building gets really warm with no air conditioning. Please encourage your child to wear comfortable clothing
I am thrilled to be back with the “big” kids and cannot wait to see what this year has in store for us!
