A Great Memory popped up - one of the last games before my 2018 shoulder surgery - and a multi- goal game at that and missed the Hat Trick in the waning moments, clanged one off of the post. The goalie is a huge Bernard Marcel Parent fan like myself. Saint Mark’s Sunday hockey great group of guys!

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a sweet and endearing moment that I was able to observe over the weekend.

I am driving Maddox Park and his brother to Korean School. Sonya is in the back seat. Maddox has been sharing with me his love for dragons, lizards, sharks, tortoises. I can see him being the next Jack Hannah, Jeff Corwin,Steve Irwin, etc....Sonya jumps and starts asking Maddox about dinosaurs. Thus begins an on going conversation between a fifth grader (one who is an animal enthusiast) and a very chatty/curious 2nd grader.

Rarely do you see such a sweet, informative exchange between students.

Thank you, Ashlee Conrad Park and Ed Park for allowing me to share this with our community. You have awesome boys!!
As St. Mark’s endeavors to increase its marketing visibility, today our videographer took environmental shots of the campus, the students, and the day to day activities. During our lunch break, we asked him to share his insights about what he saw through the lens of his camera. His comments are as follows:

1. He observed that St. Mark’s Episcopal School is personal and a close knit community.

2. He watched students being polite and kind to one another.

3. He remarked that the students are “crazy
intellectual”, very curious,and unafraid to participate in classroom discussions.

4. He shared that the difference between public school classroom instructions and small, private school classroom instructions is that public school instruction is lectured based, while at St. Mark‘s, the instruction is interactive based.

5. In regards to why he saw students demonstrating a willingness to participate and be engaged is due to the safe enviornment created for the students.

6. He also sensed that students were not afraid of being wrong, but demonstrated a willingness to learn.

It was an affirmation to hear him share his thoughts and insights. We started filming at 8 am and by 11:45am, he was able to capture all that we already know about our school!! HOW FANTASTIC IS THAT?!!

Thank you to the teachers,students, and administration for allowing us to film and promote our school! And thank you, Karina Carretero and Guen Vinnedge for getting the details of this endeavor in place!

It is with sincere regret that we inform you that Saint Mark’s Episcopal School (Kindergarten thro

Graduation 2020

Congratulations to the 8th Grade Class of 2020!

Thank you to Mrs. Barbara Harris for all her time spent collecting video submissions, tracking down pictures, compiling the liturgy, and producing this video, with help from Julia and Andrew from St. Mark's Episcopal Church.

For the Class of 2020:
May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships so that you may live deep within your heart.
May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may wish for justice, freedom and peace.
May God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done. Amen.

Gracious and caring God, our source of light, we ask for your almighty hand to be upon these graduates as we send them forward. With their classes and grading now complete, may they strive toward excellence in all they do.

With the applause quieted, may they celebrate and lift up those around them.

With the speeches concluded, may their voices rise up to pronounce peace and justice in the world.

With the fanfare ceasing, may they find bliss in future endeavors and adventures.

With diplomas in hand, may their achievements grow and enrich their communities.

With spiritual formation through song and prayer, service and leadership, lament and celebration, may they discover holiness in the midst of life's blessings as well life's challenges.

As their education continues, may they conduct their life's work with exceptional skill and integrity inspired to Go Forth and Set the World of Fire from this day onward.

Grace be to them. Amen

Here I am, Lord
Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord
If you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart.

Thank you for Mrs. Ghali for sharing these pictures of our 2nd graders singing a Saint Mark's favorite in music class with Mr. Abernathy.


Grant, O God, that your holy and life-giving Spirit may so move every human heart and especially the
hearts of the people of this land, that barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and
hatreds cease; that our divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our
Lord. Amen.


Our 6th grade math class recently finished a week-long study of transformations in geometry. As a culminating project, Ms. Russell had the students make tessellations of their own design, and the students had to identify if their completed tessellation was an example of translation, reflection, or rotation. 6th grader Ralph's tessellation even had all three!

Julius Caesar Act 1

The Saint Mark's 8th grade Class of 2020 proudly presents Act 1 of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Directed by Mr. Bradley, the students persisted in continuing to study and practice the play over distance learning. We could not be more proud of all they have accomplished over their time at Saint Mark's and especially over the last few months.

A special guest recently joined our 6th graders in their science class ... Sir Cuddles, the ball python belonging to 6th grader Luke. Luke told his classmates about the diet, habitat, and characteristics of ball pythons, and then it was feeding time for the snake. It's the circle of life!


Patience paid off for our 2nd graders, as they got a first-hand lesson in observing evaporation by leaving salt water in a glass for several days. Look at what was left behind once the water evaporated.


As we pause to lift our hearts and minds in prayer, let us be mindful of those who have laid down their lives in the service of their country. O God, we ask your strength, that we might dedicate ourselves to perfecting your kingdom of peace and justice among nations. Let us give thanks for the many blessings of freedom which we possess, purchased at the cost of many lives and sacrifices. Fill us with courage to fulfill our tasks and in no way break faith with the fallen. We commend these fallen to your mercy and ask that you give them eternal rest. This we ask and pray in your name. Amen.

Do you know your math facts? These 7th graders do, and they are not afraid to take on any challengers in a factor game with playing cards. Two students hold up cards (turning off their self-view on Zoom, of course), and another student says the product of the two numbers. The winner is the first person who can name their own card without looking.
