With the support of the Parent Association, Saint Mark’s holds several events throughout the year that enhance community spirit, while raising funds for Saint Mark’s programs. All families are encouraged to support the school by attending these events, as well as by volunteering for the planning and execution.
Community Coffees are held several times throughout the year. Parents are invited to stop by for coffee, breakfast snacks, and the opportunity to connect in a casual setting on campus. The first Community Coffee takes place on the first day of school, and then in November, January, and April, immediately before the monthly Parent Association meeting.
The annual Fall Fest brings the Saint Mark’s community together for an afternoon of games (including ever-popular “confetti eggs”), activities, and food. The school parking lot is transformed into our “fairgrounds,” and families from the school, church, and neighborhood come together for a day of fun.
Annual Spring Event
The Spring Auction is the school’s largest fundraising event each year. The event includes live and silent auctions and a paddle raise, as well as dinner and dancing. Every other year, the event begins with friendly competition at the Golf & Tennis Tournament earlier in the day.
The Friends of the Library Committee organizes two book fairs every year, one in the fall and one in the spring, as well as other activities to support the library.
This is one of the most-loved events at the school. Students from 1st through 6th grade dance, play instruments, sing, tell jokes, recite poetry, and perform gymnastics or martial arts routines. The Talent Show gives our students a chance to take risks in front of a supportive audience and is not-to-be-missed!
The spring Jog-A-Thon is an opportunity for students to raise money from their friends and relatives for their school. All proceeds support the field trips program at Saint Mark’s. The Jog-A-Thon is a morning of healthy fun for all students!
Used Uniform Sales
Several times a year the PA hosts used uniform sales, where parents can stock up on gently used shirts, pants, skirts, jumpers, and sweaters. Proceeds from the sales support the school. Check the school calendar for sale dates.
New Family Welcome Dinner
PRIDE, the Inclusivity and Diversity Committee, hosts a dinner each fall to welcome all new families to the school, share the committee’s mission, and invite parents to be involved.
Families bring a dish from a country of their heritage for a festive on-campus dinner.
