St. Joseph Catholic School

Welcome to First Grade

Welcome to first grade. My name is Chris Stringer and I have taught first grade for over 20 years.  I just love teaching the first graders. They are a joy to work with and  I absolutely love helping  them to grow and develop into wonderful students.  
On a personal note, I have been married to my wonderful husband Gary for 39 years. We have three grown up kids who  make me proud each and every day. All three are productive members of the community and put family first. 
I enjoy reading, gardening, listening to music and taking care of the pets. 
Mission Statement
My mission for the first grade is to provide a safe, nurturing environment that helps each child develop into life long learners.

This is a sample of the heritage quilt square that each student will be working on in class. Images should be 2X4 or smaller so that they will fit into the triangle. Be sure to read the information sheet that went home January 13 in the homework folder.
