The Community Comeback

 The Community Corner is back again!

Let’s start with calling 2022 the community comeback year! One of the many things that have made this year special have been the community events that have been student or parent-led. I am sure you can share in my excitement when I say that this spring, we have been able to get back to the people, culture, and families that make our community unique and great! 

To name a few events, this season we celebrated:

  • Go Texan Day

  • Welcoming parents back to campus to read to kids

  • Guac with Grads involved our alumni 

  • Lion’s Cafe 

  • Lower School Academic Showcases, like our 1st Grade Publishing Party, 2nd Grade Famous American Project, 3rd Grade Pioneer Day, and 4th Grade Texas History Presentation

  • Middle School Musicals 

  • Spirit Week (coming soon!)

All these events have brought us closer to our student and parent body. It was also exciting to see friends of friends attend our community events as we got back to connecting with our neighbors and friends over fun and fellowship. 

As the summer nears and the weather remains somewhat constant, don’t forget to bring that St. Mark’s community energy with you while on vacation, with friends, at work, and in your neighborhood!

I leave you with a quote from Margaret J. Wheatley: “There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.”
