A message from the Principal

Welcome to John Hoeven Elementary School - Minot’s newest elementary school!

John Hoeven Elementary opened for the 2016-17 school year. Since opening, we have worked hard to create a school environment that addresses the differences in our students’ academic levels, interests, and learning styles. We do not take lightly our responsibility in ensuring our students experience a highly engaging educational experience in a safe and nurturing environment.

We currently have a student population of 485 in a K-5 setting. Our school building is beautiful and modern. Our staff and students have a sense of pride in our facility, and in being “Hoeven Hawks”. The parents, teachers and children in our school community have a strong community spirit and are committed to ensuring the school remains a happy and safe place for learning and growing.

Become a part of our school community! Parents are always welcome to become involved in our school! Regular informal contact and communication with teachers is encouraged and every effort is made to develop a supportive relationship between home and school.

Sincerely, Joy Walker, Principal
