Jr. Beta Induction

South Plaquemines Elementary School hosted its Junior Beta Induction ceremony on Monday, September 30th. The sponsors, Mrs. Rita Frelich, Miss. Randi Buck, and Ms. Jamie Tayamen chose the theme, "HARVEST" to reflect the new batch of Junior Beta Members. HARVEST is an acronym that represents the qualities exhibited by budding Junior Beta members. Those qualities include: Honesty, Achievement, Responsibility, Vision, Enthusiasm, Sincerity, and Tolerance. The entire service was student-led by the newly elected officers and members. The new Junior Beta members show much promise, and we are excited to see how they flourish in their community. The ceremony ended with Minister Hilry Thomas blessing the students endeavors for the upcoming year.

Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. We are proud of our students and their continuous growth academically and socially.  In the spirit of striving to achieve mastery, our theme this year is, "Aspire for Excellence."  Excellence is not an option, it is our standard.  
In addition, South Plaquemines Elementary School has a strong administration team who believes in fair and consistent discipline.  We use the “Positive Behavior Interventions Support” system (PBIS).  This system rewards students for exhibiting positive behaviors.  We aim to help students understand that there are consequences to their actions and provide students with the skills to make wise choices.   
We are looking forward to a new and exciting year as we learn and grow as a learning community. Please let us know how we can serve you.  
With warmest regards,
Dr. Stacey-Ann Barrett
