Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. Our theme is, "Big Things Have Small Beginnings." Last year, my team and I started the work of providing a high-quality education to every child at South Plaquemines Elementary School. This work requires a long-term committment and the implementation of a strategic plan to achieve this feat. We made progress last year, and expect to keep the momentum going this year in order to provide a quality education for all children. You will be pleased to know that our recruiting efforts to hire highly-effective teachers who are willing to dedicate their time and effort to the students of South Plaquemines Elementary School paid off. We managed to secure talent that will help to make our school soar. 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.
With warmest regards,
