Welcome to Preschool at Sunrise Elementary School!

My name is Diane Harsch and I am very excited about being your child’s teacher this year!

We have many fun and engaging activities planned to give your child a wonderful learning experience.

Our school day will consist of circle time, large motor activities, recognizing letters and their sounds, writing, science, math and planned play time. Our class will be learning through play and improving on our socialization skills and preparing your child for Kindergarten. 

We will be serving your child breakfast and lunch, so please advise me of any doctor-indicated food allergies or food that can’t be consumed due to religious practices.

Please bring a child-sized backpack labeled with their name and a labeled ziplock bag with a set of extra clothes in case of an emergency. (Shirt, underwear, shorts and socks)

Your child will also need to bring a labeled water bottle every day! Please water only - No juice or gatorade please.

I have been teaching for 25 years and most have been in preschool and 5 years in kindergarten.  I received my BA in Early Childhood Education at Ottawa University . I have been married for 32 years and have a 29-year old son who is proudly a Phoenix Police officer, and a 25-year-old daughter who is a para-educator at Sonoran Trails middle school and JV women's soccer coach at Cactus Shadows High School. I enjoy hiking with my dog Oakley, spending time at Lake Pleasant and Lake Powell. I love to be anywhere near the water and beach! My favorite team is the Arizona Coyotes! 

Looking forward to having a wonderful year!
