Dear Families,

Welcome to 1st grade!  My name is Sue Heitner and I will be your child’s 1st grade teacher this upcoming year.  This will be a great year at Patsy Sommer, and I am excited to be a part of all that your 1st grader will accomplish this year!  

I am looking forward to meeting you on Friday August 18th.  The supply drop off time have been split this year in order to help out with the congestion at the school. Families with the last Name starting A-M will be 3:30 – 5:30 and N-Z will be 4:30 – 6:30.   During that time, I will provide you with instructions on how to label your child’s supplies and how to organize your kiddo’s spot for the first day of school.  

Before the first day of school, please visit my teacher website, which can either be found at this link:, or may be accessed under the Directory tab on the Sommer Elementary web page at  Here you will find information about our classroom, our school, the school supply list, and all about me!  While there, please fill out the Student Information form 2017-2018 by clicking on that tab at the top of my page.  (If your child is a car rider, please fill out once you have a car tag number; if he/she is a bus rider, please access the bus route number first at in order to include it on the student information form.  

While visiting my website, please sign up for the Follow By Email.  This is how I will communicate classroom news with you and also through a weekly email.  There is also a tab for the 1st grade team web page on my website that you can visit and Follow By Email in order to receive information that pertains to all of first grade.

I am looking forward to getting to know and working with your family this year!   Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
