    Dear Parents, 

    Hello!  My name is Alison Genez and I am looking forward to teaching and learning with your child throughout their first grade  experience here at Primrose!    

    The first few weeks of school involve getting to know one another, establishing routines, reacquainting ourselves with the building, and exploring the classroom environment.  The children and I will be creating guidelines for our classroom entitled The We Wills.  The We Wills provide a framework of guidelines the children and I use throughout the year to make our classroom a fun, safe, and productive learning environment. I am looking forward to another fun-filled year with my new first graders!!!

    We will have snack every day in the early part of our morning, please remember to bring in a healthy snack and a labeled water bottle to keep at your desk (label all lunch and snack baggies with your name).

    The best way to contact me is through school email agenez@somersschools.org or with a note sent in your child’s folder with a number you can be reached at.
