Welcome to the Principal's Page! Mr. Bill Haws has come to Maple Shade Elementary School from Lafayette Elementary School where he was principal for two years. He Was the principal at Truman High School and a teacher there as well. Our school is the oldest continuously operating public elementary school in Bucks County. Maple Shade opened for the first time on September 2, 1930. We are committed to providing the best education to all of our students.
Maple Shade Elementary School is firmly committed to a system of quality public education that believes knowledge empowers people and is the foundation on which we build our commitment to education.
The Maple Shade learning community believes that all children can learn and that public education should enable all children to fulfill their unique potential. Through our school, our students gain an appreciation for our cultural diversity and acquire the knowledge and skills to become productive citizens.
Education is the key to developing each child's intellectual, physical and emotional abilities. Through a partnership of family, staff and community we provide a safe, caring and noncompetitive environment, model life-long learning and help students demonstrate academic proficiency.
