IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • 2017 Parent Survey – We want to hear about your St. Mark School experience! Please click on the link and fill out our parent survey:
  • Christmas Parties – These will be held on Friday, December 15 at 1:00pm. If your child does not normally attend on Fridays, they are still invited and encouraged to attend.
  • STAR movie – On December 19, we are renting out one of the theaters at the Richmond Center Cinemark. We would like to invite you and your family to join us for a showing of the movie The STAR. We only have a limited number of seats and they must be paid for in advance. The tickets are $6 per person and will be at the theater the night of the showing. A St. Mark staff member will be on hand with the list of those that purchased tickets. We will not know the exact time of the movie until next week, but it will begin between 5 and 6pm. We have sold 50 tickets thus far and will sell any extra seats to parishioners beginning December 15.
  • Pre-K Parents – We have a number of families interested in enrolling their child at St. Mark in January. If you have any thought of extending or adding days to your child’s schedule for the Spring semester, please let us know asap.
  • Ornament Party Delivery – The Mad Potter will take them and finish firing them at their location.  Your student’s name will be on the back of each ornament he/she painted.  The ornaments will be delivered to St. Mark before the Christmas break.
  • Christmas Program -Our Christmas Program will be held on Thursday evening, December 14, at 6:30pm. All students should arrive at school by 6:00pm and go directly to their classrooms. All students are encouraged to wear Christmas attire to school and then teachers can help them put costumes on over their clothing. Our program should last approximately 30 minutes and we invite you to stay for our cookie social afterwards.
  • School Pictures – The link to the school pictures taken in the Fall will expire on December 18. You can find the link farther down in this email. If you missed Fall pictures, do not worry as we will take pictures again in the Spring.
  • Christmas Parade – Here is the link to the video of the parade taken by FB Live. We are between :52 and :53 minutes into the video. Our stable was full to overflowing!
  • School Council – Our next meeting is Wednesday evening, December 3 at 6:30pm. All are welcome to join us.
  • We need some help in our uniform closet. If you have a free morning, afternoon, or evening, please consider giving a couple of hours of your time to hang and size uniforms. Bring a friend!
  • If your child should become ill, do not send them to school until they are symptom free for 24 hours. If your child throws up at noon, please do not send them back to school until noon the next day, provided they have had no fever or other symptoms since that time. We wish to keep our facility as germ free as possible for your child. Thank you for your cooperation.

Inclement Weather:
If school needs to be cancelled due to snow or other reason, I will send out a text via
REMIND 101 as early as possible. I try to make a decision the evening before or by 5:30am
that morning so that families have some time to plan. After a text via REMIND 101, I will
then post on the 4 major news channels: WLEX, WKYT, WTVQ, and FOX. You must look for
ST. MARK CATHOLIC SCHOOL. We do NOT follow Madison County or Model Laboratory.

We are here to serve you in any capacity possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us for
any reason.

Peace to you and to your families.
