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.
Mount Laurel's Board of Education wants to hear from all Mount Laurel residents in its search for a new superintendent of schools. What do you feel are some of the challenges the district is likely to face over the next few years? What question would you ask candidates for the position if you were conducting the interview?
Your answers to five survey questions can help direct board members to consider those things the majority feels are most important in a new school leader. Can you find a few moments to participate?
Please follow this link to include your voice in the search process. Survey responses go directly to the New Jersey School Boards Association, which is facilitating the search process with the board. Details and progress updates on the status of the search may be found on our Superintendent Search page.
