My name is Jessica Peterson and I am the HVL Vice President for the 2018-2019 school year.  This is my second year serving on the HVL Board, as last year I filled one of two of the co-secretary positions. In addition to serving on the HVL board, I have also been an active participant in the HVL for many years. I have chaired and co-chaired HVL events including the Daddy Daughter Dance (Midnight in Paris), Daddy Daughter Dance (Candy Land), Teacher Appreciation Week and the Mother/Son event at Joe Dumar's Field House...just to name a few. I volunteer because I want my children, along with every child at Havel to have fond memories of their elementary school years.  

My husband and I have two children that attend Havel Elementary. This year, our daughter Emily is in the 6th grade, her final year of Elementary School and our son Owen is in the 3rd grade. We enjoy spending time together as a family, which includes being actively involved in extra curricular activities including soccer and Cub Scouts.   
In addition to HVL events, you may also see me around Havel Elementary each day! I am an Assistant Teacher in the Utica Community Schools Early Childhood program. I work with Mrs. Cummings teaching the Nursery and Preschool programs at Havel Elementary. 

I look forward to meeting you at the HVL meetings each month, as well as at our many special family fun events!
