Mrs. R. Crist
Hi, I am Mrs. Crist and I have the privilege of being your child’s teacher this year. I look forward to assisting and celebrating your child’s growth this year. I originally hail from British Columbia, but have called Fort McMurray home since 2005. I have taught diverse grades in a variety of communities within British Columbia and Alberta. I hold a few degrees, which not only inspire my teaching practice but demonstrate my love of learning. These achievements include a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Education. I enjoy being a part of the learning community of WGH as well as a member of our vibrant community outside of school.
We have an exciting year ahead of us, as your child develops socially, emotionally, and academically. We will enjoy taking new steps as we celebrate our achievements together. First grade is an incredible year where children experience greater independence as they refine their abilities.
I look forward to our partnership in the year ahead. Please use the following contact information: phone: (780) 743-3101, email email@example.com , or drop by the school.

As the temperature drops in fall, students will need to arrive prepared for their outdoor breaks with:
☑ fall jacket
☑ head wear
☑ hand wear
☑ warm shoes or boots
At the end of each day, children are asked to pick up items from the shelf next to the class door.
Any items that are left behind are placed in lost and found, as they may belong to children in other classes.
Lost and found is located in our school’s main office.
Thank you for being safe, caring, supportive partners in learning!
