ST. MARK’S CATHOLIC SCHOOL
Due to the change in weather, students need to be prepared for recess and PE outside. Students can bring hats, gloves, and coats. Students should also have sweatshirts that are dress code appropriate for inside the classroom. Until the boiler gets turned on, it will be chilly in the building. Please remember to LABEL your child’s items such as sweatshirts, coats, lunchboxes, etc. This makes it easier to return items to students who may lose something.
We are also in need of donations of small cups and/or small water bottles. Please continue to remember to send a water bottle to school each day with your child.
St. Mark’s picture day is Tuesday, October 26th. Retake day will be Wednesday, November 10th.
A big shout out to Stacie Payne for helping get the Book Fair back and up and going again! Thanks to all the parents who volunteered their time to help make this week's book fair a great success.
