 SPE Parent and Family Needs Assessment Survey

At SPE, our vision is that we want all of our students to be SOUTH:

Happy and Healthy
We have a wonderful staff who invest in our students daily.  We are using the Mississippi College- and Career-Readiness Standards as an instructional guide.  Our PBIS includes teaching children to GRRR, "Get Ready, Get Responsible, Get Respectful."
Learning is fun at SPE and it's always a great day to be a Cougar!
