Welcome to Springville Elementary!

Inspiring Potential. Enriching Futures.

Dr. Gailen Mitchell
Principal

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.

At 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.

Recognizing and responding to the developmental needs and varied learning styles of our students is essential. Each child at Springville is treated as an individual, with enrichment or remediation available whenever necessary.

Philadelphia Girls Choir Auditions Coming Here!

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, May 28, beginning after school and ending at 5 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. You need not be a Mount Laurel Schools student.
Permission slips are available here. They should be returned to your child's Mount Laurel School Music Teacher as soon as possible, or completed and e-mailed to Marie Reynolds.

Strobe Lights At All Schools Signal Need To Stay Away

Did you know: That one of the newest security measures at all of Mount Laurel's Schools is a strobe-light system? In the event of a lock-down or lock-out at the school, the strobe lights will be activated to alert everyone to stay away. We will be using the strobe lights for drills as well as actual emergencies. So, if the strobe lights are flashing, stay away. We're either drilling security to keep students and staff safe, or there is an emergency within the school perimeter.
 
The lighting system is designed not only to alert parents and members of the community, but also our staff members who travel from one building to another, or may have left the building. Once our buildings are in Lockdown or Lockout mode, no one is permitted to enter or exit the facility. All exterior doors are locked. In the past, a staff member who may have gone out for lunch might return and use their secure badge to re-enter the building, unaware that the building was in Lockdown or Lockout. The strobe lights will alert them as well as other visitors who might be placed in harm's way by approaching the school during an actual emergency.
