Principal's Message

As your newly appointed principal for the 2017-2018 school year, I come with my hands, head, and heart, ready to apply them in dedicated service to our students, to you, to our parents, and the community.  I begin this school year with a deep appreciation for all persons instrumental in my ultimate arrival to South Plaquemines Elementary School.   My heart is overwhelmed with inexpressible gratitude as I warmly welcome new and returning members of this faculty and staff.  Together, we will work assiduously and collaboratively to provide a high-quality education for every child.  Calvin Lloyd wrote, “Nobody ever rises to low expectations.”  Therefore, at South Plaquemines Elementary School, our expectations for our faculty, staff, and students are high in order to yield the highest levels of success. 
Furthermore, 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.  Join us as we embark on an exciting learning adventure. Our theme for this year is, "All aboard the Hurricane Express Train." So let us get on board the train to excellence!  
With warmest regards,
Stacey-Ann Barrett
