Red Hawk Ridge Elementary Before and After School Program, also known as Soaring Heights Program, and Kindergarten Enrichment Program provide an environment where children can learn, take part in supervised recreation, and build strong, positive relationships with responsible, caring adults and with their peers.  We are licensed through the Colorado Department of Human Services, Division of Early Care and Learning.

The two programs we offer give you the peace of mind and security of knowing that your children are engaged in safe, educational and constructive activities.  Our program strives to provide your school age children with a safe and nurturing environment while promoting physical, emotional and intellectual development. 

Activities include, but not limited to homework assistance, creative expression, science, technology, indoor/outdoor recreational games, health and fitness, music appreciation, dramatic play, communication skills, cognitive reasoning, building and construction, and appreciation of diversity.  Additionally, these programs offer a variety of activities that promote life skills such as teamwork, problem-solving, creativity, leadership, sportsmanship, and community service.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
