Ms. Renaud- Grade One News

In an effort to care for our environment, I have designed this website to pass along all pertinent information in lieu of sending paper copies.  This site will allow you to stay up-to-date on what is going on in our class.  You can also find useful information and websites to help support your child's learning.
Any new information will be added weekly and a newsletter will be added periodically.  

Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.
