St. Mark News
October 3, 2016
Dear St. Mark Families,
Thank you so much Home and School for another wonderful idea! Our Back to School Bingo was a success, and our students and parents had a great time. We are so blessed to have such a great Home and School, who always finding fun activities to bring us together as one big, happy family.
Our 21st Century After School Program started this past week, and already we have a full house. The children are excited that they can stay for extra help, do their homework, and enjoy the fun activities. I am so happy that we were able to implement this program in our school and offer our students this opportunity.
As many of you know, I look over all graded papers before they go home. It is one way for me to keep track on how each student is performing in school. I have to say, this month I was so pleased with the students progress. The kindergarten children are already reading words and learning all about Jesus’ love for them. What a joy it is to hear them tell me about Jesus!
May God continue to bless you and your family, and may we always remember Saint Teresa of Calcutta’s quote: “Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."
Mrs. Maria Sanson
