Welcome to Parkway Elementary!

Mrs. Donna Kinn

Parkway School is home to 415 students in Grades K through 4, and 61 staff members. An NCLB Blue Ribbon School, we offer students a safe, positive and healthy learning environment in which to grow both socially, emotionally, and academically.

Through Mount Laurel School District and school level goals, our school has experienced increased public involvement in many areas that shape the district mission to provide an exemplary education to each child. Integrated with the best current instructional practices and opportunities, that planning builds a neighborhood school framework that is uniquely reflective of the community it serves.

One of the special things at Parkway School is The Circle of Giving,  an exceptional all-school volunteer program that teaches us all the gift of giving and sharing to help others.

Board Extends Survey Deadline For Input To Superintendent Search

Mount Laurel's Board of Education has extended the deadline to participate in the Superintendent Search Survey to October 18. The board wants to hear from all Mount Laurel residents and staff members 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 the links to the left 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.

Mount Laurel Announces New Polling Places

The Township of Mount Laurel is pleased to announce that election polling locations will no longer be housed within the Mount Laurel Township Schools. New polling locations have been established through a cooperative effort with the Mount Laurel Fire District, Mount Laurel Municipal Utilities Authority, and the Mount Laurel Library. The General Election being held on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 will be the first election to utilize the new polling locations. Please use the link below to see the chart for a list of the districts and their new polling locations. Please note that only school locations have been changed.

Interim Superintendent
