Summer 2021 Newsletter

Dear Students & Parents,

We hope you are all relaxing, having fun, and enjoying your summer! We have been working hard in School #2 and School #3 to get ready for a brand new school year! There are many exciting changes in store for you-starting with a new principal and vice principal!

Meet Your Principal - Mrs. Bertulis

Hi Warriors!

Most of you already know me because for the past 7 years, I was the vice principal for School #2 and School #3! I am very passionate about making our school environment positive, safe, and FUN. I want everyone to look forward to coming to school each day! I absolutely LOVE all of my Warriors and I am so excited to become your principal!


Before moving into administration, I was a fourth and fifth grade teacher. I am very proud that my experience in the classroom led to my selection as the 2013 Southampton Teacher of the Year! I grew up in Medford and currently live in Shamong with my husband, Jim, two daughters, Anna (7) and Abby (4), dog, Jack and cat, Ms. Meow. I also have koi fish and chickens! As most of you know, I LOVE to dance! You will continue to see me dancing in the hallways with you! In my spare time I also love exercising, eating delicious food, and spending time with family and friends.


I could not be more thrilled for this upcoming school year! We have plenty of exciting things in store! Remember, if we could get through 2020-2021, we can get through anything Warriors! I can't wait to see you all again!

Meet Your Vice Principal -Mrs. Noble

I am so excited to join the Southampton family! I started my educational career 20 years ago and have been a teacher, literacy coach, Curriculum Director, and middle school principal. I am excited that my journey has landed me here with you. I live in North Hanover Township, the same place where I started my teaching career. I am the proud mother of two wonderful girls. Laney will be entering fourth grade this fall and Claire will be entering the second grade. My family consists of myself, my daughters, husband, our gigantic Saint Bernard, Chewy, and our cat, Phoebe.

I am very involved in my community. I am currently an active school board member, a member of the North Hanover recreation committee, and a girl scout troop leader. I am a true believer that when we all work together, we can build a wonderful community for our children. My daughters are very active in sports and we often travel all over the tri-state area for competitive cheer competitions. We are always very busy! When we can, my husband, daughters, and I love traveling! We are always exploring new places. My favorites are the beach and Disney! I can't wait to get to know all of the Southampton families and am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
