New Pearson Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ Series: Grade One

Pearson’s Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ (GFGC) series will replace our current CCCB Religious Education programs.  Renfrew County Catholic School board has purchased the full Grade one program for each of its schools.  This includes print materials (manuals, texts, big books, posters) and licenses for digital resources (text, interactive student materials, adult faith modules for teachers).  Each year, two grades will be released by Pearson, until the entire elementary curriculum is published (projected date, 2018).
