Home of the Eagles

"When it rains, most birds head for shelter; the Eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain, starts flying above the cloud." 


Elementary Expo

And The Winner Is...

Congratulations to Steadham Morning News Crew, winner of the 2014 GISD Fire Reel Film Festival Morning Announcements Award. Steadham submitted an episode filmed on February 6, 2014.

Steadham Goes Green 

Steadham ALE has begun a recycling program on campus. ALE students make their way to every room two days a week to collect and sort all recycling materials.

Why recycle? Recycling conserves natural resources and reduces or eliminates pollution. Recycling also incorporates team work, learning about the environment and how important it is to take care and preserve the Earth, and classifying different materials. 

Ready! College. Career. Life. 

Students and staff at Steadham showed their support for higher education by wearing shirts from their favorite colleges and universities on the district wide College Day.  We believe that “college and career readiness” begins in elementary school!  

Watch D.O.G. at Steadham

Steadham begins year two of the Watch D.O.G. program. Who are WatchDOGS? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities

In the Spotlight

Donna Wright

My name is Donna K. Wright. I have a B.S and M. Ed. from East Texas State University .This is my 27th year with GISD. I taught Kindergarten at Beaver Elementary for 10 years in the 70’s and 80’s. I was a Parent Educator for Parent as Teachers from 1991 to 2001, when I stopped to become a first time grandmother. In 2008 I went back to Parents as Teachers and taught a Pathway to Pre K Class for Title I families, as well as a Literacy class. In 2012 I joined the Steadham Eagle team as the Pre K teacher for our PPCD/PreK Inclusion class. It is the most awesome class….ever!! I wanted to be a teacher from the time I was a little girl and still cannot imagine doing anything else. The Steadham staff is amazing, and I am so blessed to be under the guidance of incredible administrators. I have been married to David for almost 47 years. Our “children” are 44 ½ and 41 years old, and our grandchildren are 12, 10 and 4. Our volunteer work for the past almost 19 years has been to raise guide dog puppies, and now we are raising a Diabetes Alert Dog.
