Thank You

We would like to express our gratitude for helping our First Graders raise money for the Richardson Rescue Animal Shelter.  We raised $400! The 101 coin collection activity was a wonderful way to celebrate our “101st” day of school and help the students raise money through their service for their First Grade Service Project.  Thank you as well for having your child do good deeds to prepare for Easter.

The Saint Mark Mission Statement

We, the Saint Mark Community, are committed to developing each child toward their full potential academically, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and socially.  We will build on the foundation of our Catholic faith to guide them in their journey as followers of Christ.

Keep an eye out…

We will be sending home a permission slip for our field trip in April to the Children’s Theater for the performance of, “The Cat in the Hat.” Mark it on your calendar, April 21st.
