Welcome to Hylen Souders Elementary, where we commit ourselves to inspiring and guiding every student to his or her maximum potential.  Our staff and community place great importance on offering our students a safe learning environment where each individual has the opportunity to grow academically, socially and emotionally. 

Personally, I am incredibly excited about the opportunity to serve the students, staff and community of Souders Elementary.  I look forward to beginning the journey as Principal and forging lasting partnerships that will strengthen our efforts to provide each student with an excellent experience during their time here.  

We encourage you to sign up for 'Eagle-i' using the link to the left on this page.  This will allow you to stay connected to the latest news and  provide you with important updates.  We are always looking for feedback as well, so please don't hesitate to reach out should you have questions, concerns or suggestions.
