ST. MARK PARISH SCHOOL STUDENT HANDBOOK
PHILOSOPHY

The members of the staff of St. Mark Parish School are committed to helping each child develop to his/her full potential. Staff members are resolved to work with families to build the best possible environment to meet the spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical needs of the students. This spirit of cooperation is necessary to achieve the goal of meeting the needs of the whole child.

To meet these needs, the emphasis is on the sacramental, spiritual and prayer life of the students. The teachers and staff pledge:

  • To provide a religious education that develops a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through participation in the sacraments, daily prayer and knowledge of church doctrine.
  • To build a community of faith, rooted in the Eucharist, which is active, caring and conscientious.
  • To practice stewardship in the Catholic community and in the entire world.
