Welcome Back!

Welcome back to school. I would like to welcome all of you back to the 2010/11 school year. School will begin on Tuesday, August 31st for all students K-12. We will be hosting an Open House for grades K-3 on Monday, August 30 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. and Tuesday, August 31st for grades 4-12 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. I would encourage you to attend the scheduled Open Houses. This will provide you and your child(ren) time to meet the teachers and for students to become familiar with their new classrooms.

We have a lot of great things planned for the upcoming year and I look forward to meeting all of you.

Enjoy those last few days of summer!
Wendy Moore, Superintendent

Thank you for the warm welcome!

I would like to begin by Thanking all of you for such a warm reception to Genesee. The community has been very warm and welcoming. For those of you who I haven't had the opportunity to meet yet, I would like to tell you a little about myself and my family. I am coming to you from a small rural farming community in southern Michigan, very similar to Genesee. I have been married to my husband Kevin for 23 years. I have three children, the two oldest - Meghan and Katie are off to Universities in Michigan and Ohio. My youngest - Josh will be a Freshman here at Genesee. I have been in Education for the past 22 years. I was an Elementary teacher for 12 years and spent the last 10 years in Administration; 6 of those years as a Superintendent/ Elementary Principal.

When asked what my career goals are, I have to say honestly...this is it. I truly love what I do and can't imagine myself doing anything different. I genuinely love working with students, staff and parents and believe that we can make a difference in the lives of every child that walks through our doors. I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to work with your child(ren) and hope that we are able to work together to give your child(ren) every possible opportunity to become successful individuals.

I hope that you enjoy your last few weeks of summer and I look forward to meeting you.

Wendy Moore, Superintendent/Elementary Principal
