Dear Parents and Students,

    CCUSD schools remain closed. There are supplemental education resources for all students, however, teachers are not in the schools and will not be available through March 27th. We are working with the Arizona Department of Education to understand more about school closures and our next steps. In the meantime, you may want to visit the two web pages linked below, one for COVID 19 updates, and one for at-home supplemental education resources. We will continue to provide updates as often as possible. We appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time.

Welcome to Developmental Preschool

  • Welcome to Rooom #503

    I am so excited to be teaching at the Developmental Preschool again this year. This is my seventh year teaching and my second year at Desert Sun Academy. I can't wait to take this journey into a fun year of learning and growing.

Fun At-Home Learning

    • Reading to your child helps create a love of reading
    • Listening to nursery rhymes and singing songs builds language awareness and a readiness for reading
    • Rote counting to 10 and back down to 1 will build number sense (count out crackers as you give your child a snack)
    • Drawing basic shapes and having your child color the inside will improve understanding of preschool concepts
    • Visit the Public Library and check out books regularly (your child can get a library card too)
