Welcome to Springville Elementary!
Dr. Gailen Mitchell
The Springville School is
home to 447 students in Grades K-4, and 80 staff members, each school
day. Our goal is to develop knowledgeable, responsible, confident
citizens with a love of learning to last a lifetime. We encourage our
students to create, to take chances, to become active learners and to
appreciate and enjoy their learning opportunities. Building strong
character, civic responsibility and respect for diversity in our
students is an also an ongoing goal. We hope our children realize they
can make a difference.
Springville, we stress character education, goal setting, creative
spirit and student recognition. Springville's success lies in a deep
commitment to building the total child. This success begins with the
entire school community working together for the academic, social and
personal growth of our students. We provide many opportunities for our
students to perform community service as student ambassadors, buddies
for lower grades, safety patrol and school-wide service projects.
Minutes from our November 2 "Points of Pride" Meeting Now Online
Our November 2 meeting focused on Points of Pride - those things participants were most proud of within the Mount Laurel Schools. More than 130 community members worked in 30 small groups to identify personal points of pride first, and then discussed those items within the group to come to consensus on items they had identified in common. Here are the complete minutes from the November 2 Points of Pride Meeting.
A Path to Success 2030
The Mount Laurel School District has launched "A Path to Success 2030", a strategic planning initiative that engages our community prior to the development of a new three-year strategic plan for our schools.
I would like to personally invite you to participate in our Strategic Planning Meetings. Your perspective would be a tremendous asset as the entire community comes together for these important discussions. Each of our sessions will focus on a specific theme designed to gather your input. All meetings will be held at the Mount Laurel Hartford School from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., as described below.

Check out our new interactive Cafeteria Menu. Breakfast and Lunch Menus are all in one place, and all schools are accessible through a drop-down menu. Hold your cursor over any item in bold and its complete nutritional value will pop up. Use the button on the top-right of the page to get Carb Counts on all menu items. It's a big step in our shared goal of keeping students healthy as well as wise! Please note that as part of our effort to "go green," lunch menus will not be sent home with students in hard copy after October.
