• Welcome to First Grade in Room 202

    Dear Room 202 Parents,


    Hello and welcome to a brand new school year. I hope you are having an enjoyable summer. My name is Jennifer McDonnell and I will be your child’s first grade teacher. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child, and I hope you are as excited as I am to start the new school year. This is going to be my twenty-fifth year teaching in the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District. I was a second grade teacher for four years at Nether Providence Elementary School, a science teacher for three years at SRS and last year was my seventeenth year of teaching first grade at SRS. As I am typing this I cannot believe that I have been teaching this long because it feels like a few years ago that I started my teaching career. Time really is a funny and strange thing!

    I know this can be a challenging transition for some of you as your child goes off to school for a full day, but please be assured that first grade in Room 202 will be comfortable, loving, safe and engaging. I have found that communication between home and school is key. Please feel free to contact me with questions, concerns, or comments at any time through the year. You can reach me via my email address jmcdonnell@wssd.org or by phone at SRS, 610-544-5700.

    First grade is a year full of adventures, experiences, and learning. I am truly privileged to aid in this journey with you and your child. Enclosed you will find additional information about this year including a supply list. I hope you find this helpful.

    Respectfully yours,

    Jennifer McDonnell
