Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
Greetings to you for the 2017-2018 school year! On behalf of the Faculty and Staff of Boothville-Venice Elementary School I would like to say welcome back! We hope you had a relaxing summer and you are ready for a wonderful school year.  Our theme this year is BVES~ Making the World A Better Place!”  We look forward to your hard work and efforts for this upcoming year. 
The handbook contains very important information concerning discipline, uniform regulations, medication policies, attendance policies, cafeteria prices, as well as several other important items.  A calendar of events for the entire school year from Plaquemines Parish School Board has also been included.  When you have concerns about procedures here at BVES, this is the first place you should check.
BVES has a strong administration team that believes in fair and consistent discipline. We use the “Positive Behavior Intervention Support” system, or PBIS, that rewards students for exhibiting positive behaviors.  We plan to ensure that all students and parents understand exactly what is expected of our students.  We feel that it is important to recognize the students who make a positive difference in our school and community. We have HIGH EXPECTATIONS for all of our students, our staff, as well as, our parents!
Please read the handbook in its entirety with your child before signing the student/parent contract that is attached to the front of the folder.  Return all forms to your child’s homeroom teacher as soon as possible.  The sooner we have these items, the sooner we can get down to serious learning.
I am looking forward to a new and exciting year with each and every one of you as we learn and grow together, remember: “Boothville-Venice Elementary is –Making the World A Better Place!” Please join us this year as we take this educational journey!
