Family Engagement


Held throughout the school year, these events offer our families an opportunity to connect with each other, our team, and community partners, while sharing a meal and participating in activities, field trips, and sponsored events. Building community and sharing helpful tips and resources for parents to promote education in the home is a key indicator of student success.



St. Mark Youth Enrichment leads a variety of community initiatives, including “Apples for Students” through which we provide school supplies to more than 1,600 area students; and the Sponsor Angels program through which we provide warm winter clothing to students in need.
