Words of Inspiration
You are the One from Whom
every family derives its origin.
Grant that, in keeping with Your glorious riches
we may be strengthened with power
through the Spirit
for the development of our inner selves.
Help us to develop our natural potentialities
to the full
while at the same time growing in Your likeness
to Your Son Jesus Christ. Amen

Have a great week.
Foundation Catholic Education St. Maarten recognizes regular, purposeful homework as an essential component of the instructional process in all Catholic schools. Homework is an integral factor in fostering the academic achievement of students and in extending school activities into the home and the community.
Regular homework provides opportunities for developmental practice, drill, the application of skills already learned, the development of independent study skills, enrichment activities, and self-discipline. Homework should provide reinforcement and extension of class instruction, and should serve as a basis for further study and preparation for future class assignments.
In light of the major purposes for homework, it is not to be assigned as punishment for students for disciplinary reasons.
No homework will be given in groups one and two.
1. Keep my eyes open
Sometimes we notice that something does not feel right with a child but we get distracted. We are all very busy, it’s true. We have great pressures and responsibilities pulling us in too many directions. The child who seems a little ‘off’, not himself, snappy or more quiet than usual is trying to tell us something. But it is easy to tuck this information away in a back pocket and only realize that something is wrong when a crisis occurs. We then think back and recognize that the signs were there, we were just too preoccupied to pay attention.
Don’t allow problems with your child to fester and grow. Open your eyes and observe if a child seems sad, withdrawn, distant, more moody than usual, or angry. Recognize if there seems to be greater confrontation between this child and siblings, if friends stop calling or coming over, or if the child can’t seem to find his place in school. Because before you know it, half the year can go by and what could have been a small problem has now become a ‘situation’ that requires major time and investment and causes terrible aggravation.
