Saint Mark's Is On To Something
K-8 schools like Saint Mark's are excelling in regards to their middle schoolers. Students that experience brain science education, receive positive influence from peers, and support from instructors, all while learning in the same environment from grades K-8, are able to enjoy more success academically, socially, and emotionally. Check out this article for more information!
Please bring your box tops in! We want to get as many as possible by October 30th! We get checks from box tops in December and May, so it would be preferable to have the money be used throughout the year rather than all at the end of the year.
Saint Mark's Strategic Plan
Saint Mark's Strategic Plan has been finalized and approved, and will be shared soon. Once finalized, it will be shared on our website so that parents may get an inside look at our vision for the future. Stay tuned for more updates!

Fall Sports Update
Our boys and girls soccer teams have wrapped up their regular and post seasons. The students grew a lot in skills and really had seasons to make us proud.
