Hello! Welcome to Fifth Grade! My name is Ms. Renda and I am so excited to be your teacher this year! I enjoyed a wonderful summer and I hope you did too! I spent lots of time outside walking our dog, Apollo, and working in my flower gardens. My daughter Tessa and I only got to the beach once, but I had lots of other fun adventures including visits to Maryland and Virginia. I also went to Cape Cod for the first time. My sisters and I spent four days in NYC and we saw the amazing Broadway show, "Oklahoma". The music is wonderful! I had the best summer, but I cannot wait to meet you and hear all about your summer adventures!
How cool is this? I saw this in the Crocs store in New York!
We celebrated our daughter's wedding last May.
This is Apollo. He's part Husky and part Great Pyrenees. Do you see the Mickey Mouse spots on his fur?
A lovely butterfly hanging out in my garden.
