Welcome to Fleetwood Elementary!

Inspiring Potential. Enriching Futures.
Mr. Michael Profico Principal

Fleetwood School is home to 359 students in Grades K-4, and 65 staff members each school day. Our students are encouraged to become actively involved in all aspects of their school. The third and fourth-grade Friday Friends work every Friday to read and participate in other activities with their kindergarten friends. Fourth-grade students also serve as "bus buddies" by assisting kindergarten students in getting safely to their buses. Our third and fourth grade Student Council members help resolve issues, plan monthly Spirit Days and serve as ambassadors during Grandparents Day and other family visitation days.

Parent Involvement at Fleetwood is provided through a dedicated and hard-working Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). Fleetwood School's Physical Education Program has been hailed by the National Association for Sports and Physical Education as a Stars School.


Mission Statement

  At Fleetwood Elementary School we take pride in creating a partnership in school and community.
Our ultimate goals are to: 
      • foster social and emotional growth
     
• provide a flexible academic environment to meet diverse needs
     
• develop skills that enable students to be effective problem solvers
        in everyday life

All Parents: Important Notice About Placement Notices

"We're away and can't get to the mail ... Can you tell me my child's teacher?"
"The mail has been running late in our area and everyone else has their assignment letter. Can you give me the information by phone?"
"It's really sort of crazy in this day and age to have to wait for a letter to arrive ..."
 
Each August,our phones ring steadily with comments like those above. And we get it. There's really no reason we should not begin the process of class assignment notification via e-mail. That is, unless you have not supplied us with a working e-mail for each of your children. Or, obviously if you have no access to Internet or e-mail.
 
So, this year, all class assignment letters will come to you by e-mail.
 
Here's the schedule:
  • Harrington House Announcement e-mail will be sent on August 17. New students: watch for this because you will need it to know which Orientation session to attend on August 26
  • Hartford Team Assignment e-mail will be sent on August 24. Fifth-Graders: You'll need this to know which Hartford Hello Day session to attend on September 1.
  • All Elementary e-mails will be sent on August 28.

Please use this form to supply us with a primary and secondary e-mail address, if you do not have a valid one on file with us now.

If you have no access to Internet or e-mail, please notify your school office that you must continue to receive assignment letters by mail.

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.

Did You Know You Can Get Connected Affordably?

Over 1 million families have connected to the Internet at home thanks to a Comcast program called Internet Essentials. Eligible families can attain Internet service for $9.95 a month, and may even qualify for a low-cost computer. Even families that have previous unpaid bills with Comcast may qualify for this service. Click here for more information and to fill-out an application.
