Welcome to First Grade!


    My name is Donna Stroud, and I am very excited to have your child as a part of my class this year in First Grade!

    This is my 6th year as a teacher at Warsaw Elementary and my 7th year of teaching. I taught 3rd Grade in Lenoir County for one year and have been a First Grade teacher in Duplin County since 2015. I received my degree from East Carolina University and graduated in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education K-6 with a concentration in Reading K-12.

    First Grade will be full of fun and positive learning. My goal as a teacher is to help your child succeed not only in First Grade but in years to come. Parents, I will be counting on you to help me and to work with me as a team to ensure that your child is successful. Please, take the time to study with your child, help them with homework, and read with your child each day. This will increase their success throughout the year. 

    Back to school looks different this year however, I am looking forward to the upcoming school year and getting to meet and know all of my new students and their families. I will be using Class Dojo for students and parents to receive messages and class assignments. Please, feel free to contact me at any time should you have any questions or concerns. You can contact me by note, phone, or email. I am always available and happy to talk with you or meet with you to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

    Again, I am so excited to meet you all, and I look forward to a fun, positive, and successful year!
