St. Mark News
December 14th, 2015
Dear St. Mark Families,
We have come to the end of the first trimester. I am so proud of children’s hard work and dedication to their studies. Many of our upper grade students have received First and Second Honors. This could not happen without the support and cooperation of parents, teachers and students. It is always nice to see the results of their dedication and hard work. Quite a few students are also receiving good results on their high school entrance exams. We are so happy to hear of their successes.
As a Catholic elementary school our goals are not only based on the children’s academics but also on the development of their faith. I am pleased to hear from parishioners how much the student’s actions touch their hearts as they witness what true role models of our faith they are in the community. Our students have such big hearts and are always looking out for those in need. Keep up the great work, students!
May the Lord continue to bless you and your family.
Thank you all for coming out for such a wonderful night! It was a great success! Our eighth grade led us down the street singing Christmas carols and sharing poinsettias with parishioners along the way. Then Santa, himself joined us for dinner and crafts in the gym! It was a beautiful night!
