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.
Kindergarten/First-Grade Roundup will be held on Monday, March 6; Tuesday, March 7; Thursday, March 9; and Friday, March 10 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Larchmont, Parkway, Springville and Hillside Schools. Countryside School and Fleetwood School registration will be on the same days from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. An evening registration on Wednesday, March 8 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. will be held at all six schools for parents who cannot attend during the day. Parents should register their children at the school they will attend. If you are unsure of your sending area school, check this link or call district Administrative Offices at (856) 235-3387.
This year, the registration process will begin online, where you can fill-out all of the necessary forms in advance. Our online registration system is now available. Access it here.Then, during Roundup Week, visit the school your child will attend to present all of the original documentation.
