• 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 the Desert Willow Art Studio!

    I am so grateful and excited to be the art teacher here at Desert Willow Elementary School! Students will be practicing Studio Habits of Mind in the art studio: Engage and Persist, Observe, Stretch and Explore, Envision,  and Develop Craft. They will learn how to access and use art materials responsibly and skillfully in a choice-based curriculum. For information regarding Teaching for Artistic Behavior, see TAB.
