Principal’s message:


Welcome to the 2019-20 school year at Don Steed Elementary. I am so excited to be a part of the Don Steed family where we Aim for the Stars in order to achieve rigor, relevance and form relationships, so that our students can be successful every day. We work as a team in order to ensure that every child can learn and reach success in a safe and nurturing environment. Positive relationships are what our foundation for learning is built upon. We strive to make a difference every day in the lives of our students from the moment they walk onto our campus, until they leave our doors every afternoon.


Rigorous, meaningful instruction is what our teachers give our students on a daily basis to help grow the whole child in order for every student to become productive 21st century citizens. This is achieved daily through our North Carolina Standard Course of Study, which gives our students the skills needed to problem solve, analyze, and become active members in classrooms, as well as their community.


We know that you will agree that Don Steed is the place for first class learning in Hoke County! Thank you for letting me be a part of your student’s lives each and every day this school year. It is an honor to serve the community of Don Steed Elementary and Hoke County Schools.
