Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year.  Our support staff worked tirelessly to ensure that when you arrive on  campus, our grounds are well-manicured, the halls are spotless, your child has a well-prepared meal in a timely manner, and you are greeted with a hello and a smile.  We hope that our efforts are to your satisfaction because we pride ourselves on operating an immaculate customer-oriented school.  Our theme for this year is, "Big things have small beginnings."  We recruited teachers and staff who are the "right fit" for our school.  Therefore, the best is yet to come.  As always, we stand ready to do everything in our power to ensure that your child has the best educational experience that will ultimately enhance our community. 
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,
Stacey-Ann Barrett
