Third and fourth grade students celebrated Thanksgiving with a cultural feast. Students brought in food that was culturally significant to their families. This is such a special opportunity to share with our friends about the differences that make us all special and unique!
Our kindergarten, first and second grade students had a fun friendship feast to celebrate Thanksgiving. We love watching their sweet friendships grow at SMS!
As we continue to count our blessings, we count among them our SMS Parents! We work best as a team and having parents on that team makes us a success! Thank you to all the parents for the hours volunteering, the food donated, the prayers prayed and the support for the teachers!
Happy faces as we celebrated Thanksgiving at St. Mark!
SMS Fourth grade students read the story Balloons Over Broadway and then made their own balloons. They even went on a parade through some of the classrooms, showing off their creative and imaginative designs.
We are thankful, in this season of gratitude, for all our students.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our Marksmen, past, present, and future!
Our school is hosting a Toy Drive to benefit the Catholic Charities and we would love your support. As you start shopping and seeing sales and deals, consider donating a toy to the drive and help to make a child's Christmas a little brighter!
This morning, Monsignor Brownsey celebrated Mass with the students. After, he spent time sharing in depth about the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and how to be present with the Lord and focus on actively listening to His word through prayer.
The 6th graders enjoyed building their own operation game, learned how to partially code a website, and explored body systems in VR at the JUMP Center! Thank you, Sr. Pieta and the JUMP Trading Simulation, for having us!
At the end of the assembly celebrating Dr. Dillon on Catholic Principal Appreciation Day, the students begged Monsignor Brownsey to shoot a basket! The cheers were resounding when he made the shot!
We celebrated Dr. Dillon yesterday but we are thankful for her leadership and service everyday! She was surprised with a standing ovation of cheers from students and staff, a blessing from Monsignor and gifts from the students to show their appreciation.
Proud to be Marksmen! #makeyourmark
SMS middle school students went to #BradleyUniversity to participate in the Parade of Flags on Monday. This event celebrates International Education Week and is a great opportunity for the students.

Thank you so much, Dr. Campbell!
Using different acids and bases, Dr. Campbell shared lots of color changing experiments with preschool. He also explained solids, liquids, and gasses, did a sink and float experiment and exploded mini rockets using alka seltzer, water and film canisters.
Our preschool class had a fun science experience thanks to Dr. Campbell and his Demonstration Crew from #BradleyUniversity. He made science exciting, easy to understand and accessible for the preschool students. Their rapt faces show it all! #stmarkscientists
