Welcome to the 2023-24 school year at Souders Elementary! This year we are excited to “Shoot for the Stars” at Souders. Our staff is eager to get the year underway and can’t wait to continue to inspire and guide our students on their journeys to be the best Eagle they can be. Each and every day we work to truly personalize instruction, engage students, and grow minds. Our staff are dedicated to this vision and we strive to make our building a place where both students and staff want to come to each and every day. We are excited to continue to make Souders a place where our students and their families feel supported, valued, and connected to one another. The strong, collaborative relationship between our students' amazing families and our dedicated staff is essential to the continued success of our students at Souders, helping them reach their full potential. Thank you for your continued support. I look forward to a fantastic year!
