Welcome to Countryside Elementary!
Ms. Lori Zataveski
The Countryside School is home to 335 students in Grades PK-4, and 70 staff members each school day. Here are just a few of the many opportunities our students have been given to encourage active learning:
Through our Buddy Program, each preschool child in our school is paired
with a fourth-grade buddy. The buddies meet for one period a
participate in a teacher-directed learning activity. Through
our Student Announcer Program, the students in kindergarten through
fourth-grade conduct the morning opening exercises, and announcements.
We have a very active and caring Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO). In addition to raising funds for technology, assemblies, field trips, and playground equipment, the PTO consistently generates ideas for school improvement.
Philadelphia Girls Choir Music Director Jeffrey Smith will hold auditions for girls ages seven and older who have not previously auditioned for the Choir at the Hillside School on Thursday, June 1, beginning at 3:30 p.m. and ending at 4:30 p.m. Girls interested in joining the Choir's training program will be asked to sing a familiar song and perform a few simple singing exercises. This audition is very informal and will last only a few moments. Those girls selected for a final audition will be notified by mail within the month. These local auditions are open to all girls from the area who meet the above criteria and need not be a Mount Laurel Schools student.
|Countryside students, along with students from Parkway, Hillside and Hartford schools, were honored at the March 28 Board of Education meeting for their winning entries in the statewide annual Fire Safety Poster Contest. The five local winners could advance through county and state level judging if selected. View more photos in our Photo Gallery.|
