Dear Developmental Pre-K families,

    Welcome to our school family!  I am looking forward to working with you and your child this 2022-2023 school year!  I am excited to be teaching Developmental Pre-K at Village Meadows again this year.  I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success.  Please feel free to reach out to me, as I will continue to communicate with you.

    The curriculum we use in Pre-K is Scholastic's Big Day for Pre-K.  This educational program is specifically designed to teacher preschoolers the skills needed to enter a kindergarten program that will best meet their needs.  We will accomplish this goal by working with our families, concentrating on Individual Educational Plan (IEP) goals, and by using a developmentally appropriate approach.  During the next few weeks, the Big Day for Pre-K program will be introduced and used to help our students learn all about their school and make new friends.  We will focus on cooperation and getting along with others as the class is introduced to the routines and expectations of school.

    Again, I encourage you to contact me if you have an questions or concerns.  I can be reached via e-mail at patricia.riffle@dvusd.org or you can call me at 602-476-6338, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

    Your child will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow here at Village Meadows and I am excited to be a part of their school career!
