St. Mark News

May 16, 2016

Dear St. Mark Families,

We ended up having a beautiful day for our 3rd grade students’ First Holy Communion! They were so excited to be able to receive our Lord for the very first time. We look forward to having them join us in receiving the sacrament at our school Masses. I am so very proud of them, and know they were very well prepared and ready for their special day.

Our teachers were very excited to have Dr. Lindsey Sides, from the Bucks County Intermediate Unit give a presentation at our Professional Development Meeting on Friday, May 6th. We look forward to working on our summer assignment on The Writing Workshop. Dr. Sides will continue with part two of this Professional Development before school starts in September. We hope to learn many great ways to enhance our writing program.

I hope that all of our St. Mark moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I pray that the Blessed Mother continues to watch over you and your families.

God bless,

Mrs. Maria Sanson

Please consider being a lunch aid. It only takes an hour of your time and it is a great opportunity to earn money toward tuition!

We need 7 volunteers each day; so we are truly looking for as many as possible.
