Julie Heatwole

Welcome to Sunflower Elementary!  We are a family here and I am blessed to be part of this caring family learning community.  My name is Julie Heatwole and I have the opportunity to be your scholar's counselor.  I've been having such fun being a counselor & social worker since...well...about 20+ years.  I'm still young at heart, though! 😉 

Some of my responsibilities include (but not limited to) teaching social/emotional (SEL) lessons in every classroom K-5, meeting with scholars in small SEL groups & individually, plus assisting with any immediate needs.  In addition, I'm the "go-to" person for any resources be it school supplies, clothes, shoes, backpacks, connections to our community resources, Harvesters BackSnacks, Brainfood (free books), free dental services, and MORE!  Please feel free to contact me via email ( or phone (#785-330-4860) or meet in person.  I can't wait to see you at school!  We're going to have the best year YET!
