Welcome to the Countryside Elementary School website. We hope that you find the information contained here to be useful and informative. Please come visit and observe first hand the warm, caring, academically challenging, and child centered school that has been created through a partnership among faculty, staff, parents, students, and community members alike. Our firm belief that “if it is right for the child, it is right for us,” is a philosophy that we embrace. Our motto, “Celebrating Every Student” is our focus each and every day. Every student is made to feel special, and we recognize that each one has a talent and/or a gift to share with all of us. We have created a school community where each and every day each child’s individuality and needs are considered when our instructional practices and enhanced programs are implemented. Do not hesitate to call me at 571-434-3250 or email me at Richard.Rudnick@lcps.org. Let us be sure to keep the lines of communication open so that we can continue to work together to ensure success of students who attend Countryside Elementary.
