Mission Statement

Principal's Message

One Community, One School, One Book
This year South Plaquemines Elementary School will be Soaring to New Heights. Our focus will be on providing each child with experiences in literacy through many different avenues. They will learn to enjoy reading not only because it can teach them new things and bring them places, they will learn that it can be their refuge and that reading can open this big world up to them. This year, we will be embarking on a journey through the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The CCSS communicate what is expected of students at each grade level, putting students, parents, teachers, and school administrators on the same page, working toward shared goals. In order to provide our students with the best instruction, the teachers and administrators have attended several professional development sessions on different aspects of the CCSS. As the teachers and leaders of this learning community we must also continue to learn. As we begin this year, please remember that this is your school and we welcome your involvement. To increase communication between home and school, we will be sending home information weekly in Tuesday Folders. Please check these folders, every Tuesday, for the school newsletter and any other pertinent information. Additional communication networks such as Parent Portal, School Messenger, and the school website ( have been established to keep you up to date about what is happening at SPES.
Finally, I want to say thank you to all our families for the support you give us. Our families make such a difference in our ability to succeed at South Plaquemines Elementary School. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call (595-6415). My staff and I look forward to working with you and your child throughout the school year.

Ms. T. Peavy
