Steelman, Gary

Elementary Principal


It has certainly been an AMAZING start to what will definitely be a fun-filled, exciting, and prosperous year!!!  We have the best kiddos in the state of Arkansas for sure.  

I want to take a second to welcome everyone to the 2022-2023 school year.  Parents, Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles, and everybody in between, please know that we at SES are excited to have your KIDDO here at SES!  This is an outstanding school with the absolute best teachers on the planet.  They come to work every day and teach like their hair is on fire from beginning to end.  They do this while making sure that each child is taken care of. Whatever that takes, they make it happen. The love they have for their students is endless!

Furthermore,  we can offer the best education, K-4, in South Arkansas!  I would love to offer you a tour of our building if you are a parent considering our school.  All you have to do is call our office and set up a day and time. I would love for you to consider Smackover Elementary School for your child's elementary choice.  You will not regret it!

I am humbled and proud to be the Principal of such an amazing school with very talented students and a faculty/staff that is second to none!  

I welcome each one of you, current and soon-to-be BUCKAROOS to what will be the best year ever at SMACKOVER ELEMENTARY!!
