Welcome to Fleetwood Elementary!
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.
During a special meeting called for the purpose, members of the Mount Laurel Board of Education appointed George J. Rafferty as the new Superintendent of Schools on February 10. His hiring follows a search process that began last July upon the retirement of former Superintendent Dr. Antoinette Rath.
In announcing the decision, Board President Maureen Sojka said she was appreciative of the hard work on the part of fellow board members throughout the selection process.
Rafferty currently serves as superintendent of the Tabernacle School District, an elementary system with two schools serving 767 students. A graduate of Hahnemann University and Holy Family College with a B.A. in Special Education, he holds an M.A. in School Psychology and an Ed. S. from Rowan University, as well as a Certificate of Advanced Study in Administration. He is pursuing a doctorate in Educational Leadership from Wilmington University.
Rafferty began his educational career as a special education teacher in Pennsauken Schools in 1990. He later served as a School Counselor in Gloucester Township, returned to Pennsauken as a School Psychologist, and went on to assume the post of Supervisor of Special Services in Somers Point. He was the Director of Special Education in Haddon Heights Schools for three years prior to his appointment as Tabernacle Superintendent.
According to the terms of the resolution approved by the Mount Laurel Board on February 10, the new superintendent holds a four-year contract with a starting salary of $162,500. His start date has not yet been established. Dr. Sharon Vitella will continue as interim superintendent in Mount Laurel until Rafferty has fulfilled separation obligations with Tabernacle and assumes the post permanently.
|At Fleetwood Elementary School we take pride in creating a partnership in school and community.
Our ultimate goals are to:
