First Holy Communion
On Sunday, May 17th, 2015 eleven of our group 5 students will be receiving the body and blood of Christ for the first time. We extend congratulations to these students and parents on this special day. We would also like to take this opportunity to also thank Tr. Nancy Hodge and Tr. Sharisse for preparing these students for their First Holy Communion.
Educational Trip groep 8
The group 8 students will be leaving the island for a week from Monday, May 25th, 2015 to Friday, May 29th, 2015 to travel on the 23rd Annual Educational Trip to Dominica. So far will be travelling 21 students on this Educational Trip to the Nature Island. These students will be chaperoned by 5 persons. We have worked very hard with the Dominica Tourism Bureau and we are looking forward to this trip.
A few sites we will be visiting are:
St. Luke’s School on Tuesday we will meet and greet the grade 6 students and interact with the grade 5 students as well. During that week their grade 6 students are preparing for their final exams and that is why we will only be able to meet and greet them.
Visiting of the two main cities: Rouseau and Portsmouth.
Visiting of the Kalinago Territory.
We wish the students and chaperones lots of fun.
Circus groep 2
Each year the group 2 class ends with the Dutch theme “The Circus”. To end this theme they will be performing for the entire school skills learned. This year Teacher Lucia and Teacher Francesca alongside Mr. Rude will be putting on a wonderful Circus show on Friday, May 29th, 2015. We invite all parents of group 2 and also other parents to come out and enjoy the different acts that the students have put together. Time: 7:45 – 8:30am
“We are called to serve one another”
Upcoming Parent Day
Our last Parent’s Day for the school year 2014-2015 is coming up. We invite all parents to take this last opportunity to come and sit with your child and see what he/she has done or is doing. Have a one on one conversation with your child. I do advice you to check with your child’s teacher/class in case they will be off premises at the time you plan to visit.
Save the date: May 28th, 2015 (all day)
We would like to thank all students and parents for coming out on Saturday, May 9th, 2015 for our Bikeathon. It was a success.
Looking forward to having all of you participate again and even more.

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.
