What do you think of our Middle School Principal? We have been going through some serious issues and I was wondering if other parents were going through the same?

He is one of the greatest sports heroes of all times in Cape.

So he has to be a great principal.

LOL I guess Mike Vick would also make a great principal with that way of thinking :)
Maybe Sandusky, Sammy Soso, Mark McGwire, OJ Simpson, Tiger Woods, and Paterno would be great too! And the miners do not make you a hero! I personally have had some issues with this "sports hero" talking down to kids and their parents. Maybe if you elaborate on the issue Concerned Parents, you might get some more feedback. Just a thought.

Yes, to everything you said about the other players as well. All the Crosnoe family has been sports stars. They have doctors in their family.

So they are the royalty of Cape and they have the right to talk to anyone, in any manner that they want, and all the other person should do is keep their head down, and their mouth shut! They are GOD here.

They may think they are God but all of them have more skeleton's in their closets than they can count, I assure you.
Maybe we should start listing them and then decide if the Crosnoes are "godly" after all.

they may think they are god and their shit dont stink but i assure you they put their pants on one leg at a time just like me. When my son went to the middle school he tried to talk to me in childish manner and it did not work for me i put a stoop to that quick i simply told him im an adult not a 10yr old .

First of all, to the parent who put a post on Topix with just the name of the principle as the subject, I have to wonder what your motives are. That's not an ethical thing to do. You are questioning the work ethic of Rex Crosnoe and you are low enough to get on here and just wait for people to post things that could destroy his career and family. People post lies and things that aren't accurate (slander, illegal by the way). If you are a concerned parent, go to the school board. Don't get on Topix and be immature. I've known Rex and his family over 25 years. We went to school together. The Crosnoe's are an honest, hard working family and no they are not GOD in Cape. They are just like anyone else, waking up everyday and working to take care of their family. As for Rex's ability to be a principal, I believe he is probably a great principal. He was always kind to everyone and still is. He is great with kids! My guess is you probably have a child that needs to be straightened out and Rex won't put up with disrespectful kids ruining the learning atmosphere for other children. So many parents are teaching their kids that they are entitled. I got a paddling for not turning in homework when I was in elementary school. It's time for people to quit babying their kids because enabling unacceptable behavior will only make their life harder as an adult. It's better for kids to have consequences and learn the hard way when they are young and impressionable. Otherwise, you may be visiting them in prison someday because of their sense of entitlement (bestowed upon them by bad parenting). As far as skeletons in the closet for the Crosnoe family, who cares? Everyone has skeletons, everyone. So take the high road and be an adult and go to the board with your problems, NOT Topix!

I can't believe you would mention his ethics! I know for a fact he has had an extra marital affair with one of the teachers where he works.

I would NEVER try to tarnish someone reputation! I have never even been on Topix before. I don't know many people and my sister told me this was a good place to get info from other community members and parents who might have the same issues. I did not say a bad thing about him. My daughter is a straight A student and is also an amazing kid and we are good parents. My issue with the principal is that my daughter has stomach issues and HAS to use the restroom often. Sometimes the teaches won't let her go. I told her to let Crosnoe know (Since I have already spoke to him) and he told her if the teachers say no then the answer is no. She comes home crying from the serious belly pain and what am I supposed to do. He talks to me like I'm also making it up. I was hoping that I could get some feedback about how he treated others. Maybe you should not judge others and assume that know it all. And It's a public forum where you can speak freely, unless you cause harm, it is legal! It seems that he tarnished his own rep if you ask me anyway. I also find it funny that the last principal lost his job for cheating and they put another cheater in his place?? Sounds like some people might think he is better than others as well.

If your daughter has stomach problems have her doctor send a note & they have to let her go to the rest room. A lot of kids abuse use the excuse of needing to use the rest room as an excuse to het out of class & goof off in the halls. Thus may be why they aren't letting her go.

Crosnoes are upstanding part of this community and do nothing but contribute good things. They work and have important jobs around here unlike some Cape residents who do nothing. Rex Crosnoe has always responded when I have had an issue and he calls himself, not letting a secretary do it.
Affairs with teachers, that is just hearsay gossip. Why don't you all bash some of the numerous taxpayer-dollar suckers we have around here instead? ridiculous.
