Dear Parents,      

Our learning has begun with a great start. With our learning, homework has also begun. I ask that if you are not in google classroom to please reach out to me. Everyone has been invited. The password once again is nyj3umo.

If it is possible, I ask if you can please cover your child’s workbooks with clear contact. Homework is essential. Every night Reading books are going home with your child to read I ask you to allow your child to read them to you for 10-15 min. each night. I also ask that each child takes responsibility for returning the book back in great condition as it was given to them.

I would like for each child to have 5 notebooks

One for Science, Social Studies, ELA, Math, and Homework.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you are giving your child water bottles and placing them in their school bags, please check that they are closed securely.

I thank you and your children for doing a great job and working with me as a team.

Ms. Regina 


Dear Parents,

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Regina Bhagwandeen. I am enthusiastic to be your child’s 1st grade teacher at St. Athanasius Catholic Academy- a school where students’ intellectual talents are fully developed. My aim is to help your child encounter Christ in every aspect of their life.  I would like to form your child in the love of Jesus Christ as celebrated in the church, while providing an education to them and reach their full potential as a child.  I am looking forward to working with you and your child to help them improve their reading skills and to become better writers.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner which includes family celebrations and time for the children to continue learning new things. 

For the month of November, besides learning new things in all our subjects, we will be learning about the importance of having a family.

We will be focusing and reinforcing:

  • ELA – phonetic sounds, ne sight words each week, and blending sounds. My main focus is to encourage the children’s writing skills and forming sentences. Once the students understand this we shall start nouns, verbs, and adjectives.

  • Religion – begin to focus and slowly prepare for the birth of Jesus along with learning new songs.

  • Science – continue to learn about different plants around the world.  We will also be doing a STEAM project.

  • Social Studies – end November with Chapter 1 lessons 4 and 5 with how voting works in our country and civic responsibilities.

  • Math – reinforce addition and subtraction and begin related subtraction and addition facts, fact families, and find the missing addends.

Along with all this learning, we will be doing many more learning activities in class.

I understand it is a big adjustment for many of the children with test-taking, writing, and projects but I thank you for your continuous support.  I am thankful and blessed to have such wonderful families.

Let’s continue reinforcing what is taught in class to better your child’s learning, especially in reading.

In advance, I would like to wish every family a wonderful Thanksgiving.  May it be a beautiful and bountiful one with our loved ones.
