• Dear New Jamison Jet & Family,

         Welcome to Jamison! I am SO excited to meet you. My name is Mrs. Petersen, and I will be your teacher this year. Are you ready for a FANTASTIC school year? I AM!

         My love of teaching began in New Jersey in the Flemington-Raritan School District. After 17 years teaching kindergarten through third grade, I left to teach closer to home and spend more time with my family. This is my 7th year teaching Kindergarten at Jamison. My family includes my two children, Liam (17) and Katie (14), who attend CB South and Tamanend, along with my husband and our adorable cat named Lucky. We live in Warrington, and enjoy vacationing at the Jersey Shore, grilling, going to concerts, and watching Phillies and Eagles games.

         During the first few weeks of school, we will get to know each other, and you will make many new friends. You will become comfortable with our daily routine and share summer memories. I have already planned some exciting activities for us, so get ready to learn and have FUN!

         To help get organized at the beginning of our year together, please bring the following items to Kindergarten Orientation or during the first week of school:

    • 1 large traditional backpack with mesh/flexible side pockets for daily water bottle (no wheels please) *Optional: change of clothes in Ziploc bag
    • Your bus tag (You will receive this at Kindergarten Orientation)
    • 1 pack of 16 Crayola crayons
    • 1 white 3-ring binder (1 inch) with front vinyl view pocket (Memory Book)
    • 2 jumbo glue sticks
    • 2 dry erase markers
    • Headphones in a Ziploc bag labeled with name (no ear buds, please)
    • Students A-L (last name): Box of tissues
    • Students M-Z (last name): Clorox wipes
    • *Optional: small reusable lunch bag/box for small daily snacks
    • Your BIGGEST smileJ

    I cannot wait to meet you at our orientation on Monday, August 28th at 9AM!  Enjoy the rest of your summer. I am very excited to hear all about it!

    Your new teacher,

    Mrs. Petersen J
