About La Marque Transitions
La Marque Transitions, previously known as the DAEP (District Alternative Education Program), is the behavior transitions center servicing La Marque Middle and High School students. The purpose of the La Marque Transitions school is to provide an alternative education setting for students with behavioral challenges.
La Marque Transitions provides an opportunity for students who have been removed from a regular educational setting to achieve academically, to learn behavioral and interpersonal skills, and to develop the self-control necessary for them to function more effectively both as students and as members of the community.
Student of the Week: Kesley Martin
Kesley was unanimously chosen by the La Marque Transitions staff as the Student of the Week. Kesley was chosen for her dedication to her academic studies, as well as her ability to remain focused and avoid distractions. Kesley is very studious, and has exhibited an exemplary commitment to correcting her behavior. Kesley is currently a 10th grade student.
The students at La Marque Transitions have committed to recycling their trash in an effort to improve their environment and their community. Students are encouraged to recycle at school and to bring recyclables from home.
Parent Conference Day
Thursday, October 28, 2010 is an early release date for La Marque ISD. This date is also the date set aside for Parent-Teacher Conferences. La Marque Transitions will be participating in Parent Conference Day, and we invite the parents of our students to come to the center to speak with the staff about student progress. We also encourage parents to inquire as to how they can become more involved in the center.
We will provide an opportunity for our students to be exposed and informed about a variety of careers and the steps towards achieving those careers. We are inviting career professionals to advise students on career requirements, skills necessary to be successful and a typical work day. The date and time for Career Day will be provided to you at a later date.
