Dear St. Mark Families,
As we end the 2019-2020 school year, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our parents, students, faculty, staff, clergy and Advisory Board for your support. It has been a memorable and challenging first year for me as the leader of St. Mark School and your prayers and encouragement have been felt and appreciated.

I look forward to seeing many of you at our Graduate Car Parade this afternoon, Sunday, June 7th. The school parking lot opens to spectators at 2:30pm and the car parade begins promptly at 3pm. Please email Ms. Sarah at with any questions.

Stay safe and be well.

Yours in Christ,
Melissa Warner

Teaching is a beautiful job; as it allows you to see the growth day by day of people entrusted to your care. It is a little like being parents, at least spiritually. It is a great responsibility.
