All are welcome, including prospective families considering us for any grade K-8.

New this week: Four new Markers!

We are very excited to welcome four new Markers next week! All four students are youngsters, 3rd grade or younger. Thank you for your help sharing your love of Saint Mark's with others. Your positive efforts (both face-to-face and via our online reviews (see below) have contributed to families coming for a tour and enrolling. We also enjoyed a shadow student and three tours this week. Most of these heard about us because of current Marker families spreading the good news. This positive word of mouth is essential and it is also so much appreciated. Thank you!

Box Tops

Friendly reminder to collect and bring in your box tops to school! This is the last time Box Tops will be collected for the school year. The money raised from Box Tops goes to purchasing new books for the Library. Each grade has a classroom goal and there are some great prizes to award to classes that reach their goal! The last day to bring in Box Tops is February 27th.

Thank you!
