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

Project Healthy Schools
As of this school year Foundation Catholic Education will begin a program that should make our schools healthier. The school community thinks it is important that our students eat and drink healthier. Children that eat and drink healthy are able to concentrate better and to learn better at school.
Our first goal is to drink less sweet beverages at school and to promote water. All children in Cycle 2 are going to commence with nutrition lessons, which are meant to make you become aware of what you drink. This will be done by hanging beverage posters in all classrooms as of mid-October.
Did you know that for instance, a pouch of apple juice contains almost as much sugar as a can of soda and that a pouch of Capri Sun contains almost three cubes of sugar?
Water is the best drink you can ever give your children, it keeps them healthy and fit.
A rubric will appear regularly in the schools’ monthly newsletter, whereby we will inform you of fun-facts pertaining to healthy nutrition and we will update you on the project at the school.
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.
