Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians of Dos Rios Elementary,

I am Renee Estrella-Chavez and I would like to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! This is my 23rd year in education and I am proud to be here serving the Dos Rios community! During my years as an educator, I have served as a classroom teacher, reading interventionist, 21st Century coordinator, instructional coach, professional development coordinator, GCU professor and assistant principal. I am also a wife and a mother to three children, 10, 13 and 23 years old.

I am looking forward to the new year because together, we will continue to inspire hope and empower all of our kindergarten-8th grade students to reach their goals and dreams. We will do this collaboratively with the support of you, the Dos Rios staff, and community.

The caring adults here at Dos Rios believe ALL students are capable of success and able to grow academically as well as social emotionally. To do that we provide high quality curriculum and instruction along with Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) and social emotional learning (SEL). Our schoolwide expectations to Be Safe, Responsible and Kind are taught and reinforced throughout the campus to provide a predictable environment in which to learn and grow. These structures allow our school to reinforce positive student behaviors and teach the skills needed to be a successful citizen of our community.

Thank you for choosing Dos Rios as your child’s school and we look forward to partnering with you to support the students and staff in the coming school year.
