Countryside students, along with students from Hillside, Parkway and Hartford schools, were honored with Recognition Awards by the Board of Education on March 28 for their winning entries representing Mount Laurel Fire Department in the statewide annual Fire Safety Poster Contest sponsored by the New Jersey Fire Prevention & Protection Association. The students were surprised when it was announced each would be taking home an iPad, thanks to community partner Farmers Insurance Lloyd Agency. If selected, the five local winners could advance through county and state level judging.
Superintendent George J. Rafferty visited students at Countryside to recognize their contributions to the March Art Exhibit at the Hattie Britt Administrative Offices. Each month, students from a different Mount Laurel School display their original art in the Board offices. Countryside students created the display for the month of March. Superintendent Rafferty presented certificates and letters of appreciation along with returning the original artwork.
