Hello Longellow Families,

My name is Jon Baudek, and I am beginning my first year as Interim Principal at Longfellow Middle School.  I previously served as Associate Principal at Longfellow Middle School and held this position since 2001. I taught eighth-grade geography and was the Middle School Dean of Students in Edina, Minnesota, before coming to La Crosse.  Furthermore, I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Minnesota and St. Thomas University.  Lastly, I am a proud graduate of Sparta High School!
I have worked with staff at Longfellow to create a safe, secure and welcoming environment and look forward to serving our school and community in a new capacity

My name is Sarah Horton and I am excited to be the Interim Dean of Students at Longfellow this school year. It is an honor to move to this new position after serving as the School Psychologist in the building for many years. Prior to that I was the Student Support Coordinator for the district. I earned my Master’s Degree in Education at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse with a specialist degree in School Psychology. I obtained my Principal licensure through the Educational Leadership program at Viterbo University. I am a lifelong resident of the La Crosse community and truly enjoy living and working here. I am committed to ensuring that our students continue to receive the best education possible. Communication is always encouraged, so if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
