Hello New Mark Families,

To begin, I would like to thank you for your patience and support as we prepare for the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. These are definitely unchartered waters for all of us, and we are eternally grateful to have such a wonderful parent community with which to work!

While we will almost certainly have to continue to adjust and change specifics moving forward, here are a few things that may be helpful for now.

From Athletic Department:

Fall sports begin Monday August 24th from 3-5PM.

Pick Up: Please stay in your cars and wait for your athlete to come to you.

Physicals/Paperwork: needs to be cleared in PRIVIT before they participate.

COVID Protocols: See Attachment

New Mark PTSA

Hello New Mark Parents,

We know this year starts with a lot of changes, but our New Mark PTSA is really looking forward to a great year and new opportunities. In the past, New Mark PTSA has provided funding for Renaissance, staff appreciation, school supplies, events and big-ticket items (new gym wall mural, ice machine, a wheelchair for the nurse's office, weight room equipment and much more). We know this year will present some challenges with limited in-person events. For this reason, we really need your help and support to make this year a memorable and successful year for our students and families. We welcome all parents, students, teachers, staff and community to become members, as you are the key to successful events and resources for social and academic programs throughout the year. We hope you will find a way to be involved that works for you!

You will have the opportunity to join PTSA online through our square store or by completing a PTSA order form and returning it to the school office (checks should be made out to New Mark PTSA). All information will be sent via email and posted to our Facebook site and our page on the school website prior to the start of school.

You will also have the opportunity to purchase spirit wear and gym clothing (that meets the New Mark requirements) online at our Cumpy’s store. During the current phase of learning, students will not be required to dress out for PE. If we go back to our normal routine and students are required to dress out, we will reopen our online store for you to purchase gym clothing. See Spirit Wear flyer below!

There will also be opportunities to get involved, including donating food for staff appreciation and helping with events. We will e-mail, send Signup Genius invites and post on our Facebook group ( as these opportunities occur. If you would like to get even more involved, let us know as we have openings on our Board!

In the past, we held our PTSA monthly meetings on the third Thursday of the month in the New Mark library at 6 pm. With changes still being made, we are working out the details.

In the meantime, we will keep you updated through the following platforms:

Meet the Teacher Night

Our New Mark teachers returned last Monday!! It was so good for the soul to see everyone and reconnect after the last few months. Unfortunately, we will not be able to have our annual Back to School Night in person this year but we do have a plan for you to meet your child's teachers. Our staff is working on creating a virtual Meet the Teacher night for our New Mark families. We will send information and the link the week of August 31st-September 3rd.
