Farewell To Ms. Spencer

Madisonville Elementary Bids Farewell to a Legacy

On Friday December 16, 2011, Madisonville Elementary sadly said goodbye to their beloved Principal, Lauren Spencer.  After 33 years of service with the St. Tammany Parish School System, Mrs. Spencer is retiring.  Parents dropping off their children in car line, and bus drivers delivering students, tooted their horns to honor her as she opened car doors and danced to holiday music! 

Children came to school for their annual “Pajama Day.”  This special day takes place the last school day before the Christmas holidays in which students have hot cocoa and cookies.  Dressed in their pajamas, little girls and boys, along with her family, filled the school’s office for their final “Good Book.” This is a special tradition that Mrs. Spencer started as a form of positive behavior support.  Every Friday, during Mrs. Spencer’s tenure, students would be selected by their teachers to go to the office where they would be greeted by loud music, cheers from office staff, candy treats, Mrs. Spencer singing and dancing on the counter, and bright markers for signing their names in these special books.

First hired at the age of 21, Mrs. Spencer taught at Madisonville Jr. High, and Mandeville Elementary.  She then served as the RHT at Lee Road and Lyon Elementary schools.  Mrs. Spencer later moved up to Assistant Principal, then Principal at Lyon. Twelve years ago she was named Principal of Madisonville Elementary.    While at the helm of MES, Mrs. Spencer was named “Principal of the Year.”  The school was also voted “Best North Shore Elementary School” by Sophisticated Woman magazine during this time.  Mrs. Spencer felt that one of the most important aspects of her job was to visit the classrooms in her school on a regular basis and to stay in touch with the needs of students and staff. 

Mrs. Spencer stated that she never grew tired of watching children learn and grow.  Her motto was always “Work hard and be kind.”  She will always be remembered as a dynamic and strong leader with a very playful spirit.  Mrs. Spencer will be greatly missed.

Mrs. Phyllis Stephens, the assistant principal under Mrs. Spencer will serve as acting principal through the end of the 2011-2012 school year.  Mrs. Stephens has been with Madisonville Elementary School since January 2005.  Although she will miss her best friend, she pledges to carry on the high expectations of excellence that she and Mrs. Spencer have worked so hard to achieve.
