Principal's Message



Dr. Penny Crooks

Welcome Balfour Family and Community,

It is my honor to join the students, staff, parents, and community of Balfour Elementary School as principal for 2017-2018 school year.

Having moved to Asheboro in 2003, I have always been proud to be a part of Asheboro City School’s commitment to excellence.  As a member of Balfour, I am even more committed to promoting academic excellence, character excellence, and personal excellence.  And so, I encourage us as a school community to embrace the Bulldog Life: be brilliant, stand brave and be a blessing!  Be brilliant by always questioning, reflecting on learning, and making connections.  Stand brave by doing what is right, facing challenges, and keeping a positive attitude.  Be a blessing by being kind and lending a helping hand.  Leading a Bulldog life will one day help our students to soar high as Blue Comets.

Thank you for welcoming me.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at
