Home and School Association

The mission of the St. Mark’s Home & School Association is to promote the education and welfare of the youth at St. Mark’s School through fundraising activities and to provide an avenue for parents and teachers to give a voice in advancing spiritual and educational interests within the school community.

We invite and encourage all parents to attend our monthly meetings. Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in Mrs. Bernstein's classroom. Please check the Friday Facts and school calendar for any location or date changes.

Through the efforts of our Home & School Association, we have been able to provide updates to technology and curriculum, provide additional budget dollars for teacher’s materials, contribute to building, landscape, and security upgrades, and assist with the middle school classrooms and new science programs. In addition, we have been able to coordinate and contribute to school enrichment programs, such as Drama, Art, Robotics, Spanish, Tennis, Chess Club, SnowSchool, and MOSS (McCall Outdoor Science School).
