Wishing your family a blessed Christmas season
We have had an exciting first half of the school year, filled with fantastic, volunteer-driven events. We are so grateful for the time and talents of the many volunteers that make great things happen at St. Mark's!
Wishing your family a wonderful Christmas,
Parent Guild President
It was a great morning in Santa's workshop!
Teacher Holiday Fund Information
We are excited to offer families the option of contributing to the Holiday Fund as a way to recognize your children's teachers and staff at St. Mark's. This convenient way to give is optional, and individual gifts are allowed as well.
There are two ways to participate in the Holiday Fund. A donation box is present in Ms. Reid's office, or you can click here to participate online. The deadline for receiving these gifts is December 18. At that time, contributions will be tallied and distributed equally to all the teachers and staff as a holiday gift from our families. Feel free to direct any questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
