Mrs. Sohns

Welcome to Mrs. Sohns'  Website!

Welcome to the 2012 - 2013 school year at Hilltop Elementary!

This school year holds promises of wonderful things to come.  We will be piloting the new STEM program embarking upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated.  I hope to make your child’s learning experience a fun and exciting one, and I hope to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child’s years of schooling.

So much happens in fourth and fifth grade! Because of this, the year will be full of important transitions. It is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes. Each child will progress at his/her own rate, acquiring skills as he/she is developmentally ready. Maintaining each child's self-esteem and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority in my classroom.

I am looking forward to a working with your child this year and helping him/her to achieve his/her full potential.

I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate with you through notes, telephone calls, quarterly reports and parent-teacher conferences. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You can call me at school (507-665-5915), send me a note or e-mail me. I am available for conferences regarding your child’s progress by appointment on school days. If you are interested in helping in the classroom please fill out a volunteer form.

Changes in Transportation
If you plan to pick up a child that normally rides the bus or you wish for your child to ride a different bus than usual, you must send a written note. Do not rely on your child to tell me this information, because children often become confused and relay messages incorrectly. If no written note is received, your child will be sent home by his/her usual method of transportation.

I look forward to meeting you soon!
