Posted March 30, 2014

My personal opinion of La Crescent Elementary is that at best it is merely an average school. Being that this is the only public school in town families are limited in choice. My child is in kindergarten this year and I'm seeing a great amount of positive parent involvement, when the teachers are in favor of that particular family anyway. For a school with a NO tolerance to bullies they sure do tolerate an awful lot considering what has happened to my child and many others this year, its beyond disappointing. Most of the teachers seem to have chips on their shoulders, but please be assure there are some GREAT ones filtered in each grade. The new principle is wonderful, and seems to be an advocate for the children, not the staff; just waiting to see him following through with the plans he is making.

I am responding to the 1-star rating posted previously. I am speaking purely from my own experiences and understand that other people's experiences will differ. I am mainly responding to the statements regarding lack of return email responses and mingling with students. I emailed Dr. Beddow-Schubert last night and had a response before 7:30 this morning that I expect will completely resolve my issue. This is the only time I have emailed her because the issues I have had in the past were more appropriately handled by others (teachers) who are closer to the situations that my students were involved in. I have been in the school daily (during school year) for the past couple years, and practically EVERY time I am there, Dr. Beddow-Schubert is in the hallways greeting students and parents. My 1st grade student knows her by name and speaks openly with her, so I must assume that she has this opportunity fairly frequently. Regarding the bullying issue.....there are programs in place to discourage bullying and a social worker on-site at the school. There are many different views on the best way to approach bullying situations. Many people share in the responsibility, not just the principal

Principal Julie Beddow-Schubert has an extraordinary unprofessional demeanor in the school. Her lack of response to emails or phone calls, coupled with ineffectiveness in handling bullying issues, makes her a poor choice at best. Unlike in years past, Julie does seem to leave her office from time-to-time to mingle with students. Continual monitoring will prove out whether this is a short-term effort or not. My hope is that the teachers and students will be able to flourish despite the environment they find themselves in.
