Dear St. Vrain Valley Community,
It has been an outstanding start to the academic year and I want to thank our students, families, teachers, staff and other partners for continuing to support St. Vrain Valley Schools’ drive for excellence in serving our community and advancing public education.
Red Hawk Elementary Featured in Learning by Design
Red Hawk Elementary School was recently recognized by Learning by Design magazgine as a spring 2015 architecture and interor design featured education project.
"Red Hawk Elementary creates a vibrant place for kids to learn. The design centers around a cen- tral space connected to all parts of the school and was inspired by urban street festivals and the concept of movement. This central building space connects staff and students, utilizing dif- ferent types of seating to aid in learning. Passive design elements encourage better learning includ- ing daylighting, views outdoors, and displacement ventilation that delivers air from ground- source heat pumps into occupied spaces."
