End of Year Testing

Please remember that we will continue our end of year testing through the middle of May. It is important that your child has a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast. If possible, please do not schedule appointments for the morning, as this is when most testing will be done. It is also important for your students to arrive at school on time. We begin testing with our first group at 8AM each day.

Summer “Target” Program

St. Mark’s is excited to announce our Summer "Target" Program. Help your student hit the target this Summer by improving their skills and strategies in both Reading and Math. This year’s program will be taught by St. Mark’s teachers Miss Medland, Ms. Campbell, and Miss Freeman. Check out what the program has to offer and sign your Marksmen up today! Brochures are available in the office.

Yoga Survey

If you have not taken this survey, please take five minutes to answer this survey about yoga in the classroom and at home. The survey benefits a group of Bradley students who helped put on a yoga demonstration during 2nd and 3rd-grade P.E. Thanks!

We are getting ready to CELEBRATE this summer! Our 120th anniversary and alumni reunion will be held on June 10th. We will need many, many volunteers to help make this a successful and enjoyable evening. More details on how to help will follow.


Happy Easter!

This coming Sunday (4/23) is the Second Sunday of Easter, also known as Divine Mercy Sunday. We will celebrate by gathering both Jr. High and High School in the Underground for the usual FOOD, FUN, FAITH, and FELLOWSHIP, as we discuss the "Habits of a Hero," otherwise known as the virtues. Just as the Church grew on the day of Pentecost, so our family will grow in this Easter celebration. We will welcome the 6th graders for the first time. So, if you have any children, neighbors, etc., in 6th grade, do help us to invite them and welcome them. See you Sunday, 12-2PM in the Underground. Alleluia!
