This month's website doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but it's clear that fourth-grade teacher Heather Renz and her students at the Vern Patrick Elementary School in Redmond, Ore. use the Internet daily for learning and communication. Features include classroom projects, a photo gallery, and student Web pages. In addition, parents can visit the frequently updated "What's Up This Week?" area for classroom news, current assignments, and resources.
