Message from the Principal

Welcoming Message

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back for another exciting school year. At St. Mark we are committed to providing an atmosphere that fosters the academic, spiritual, social and physical growth of your children.

The partnership between home, school and Church is essential in enriching students' lives. Our goal is to work together as partners to teach children academically and spiritually. Respect and responsibility are modeled and encouraged. The Sudbury Catholic District School Board and the staff at St. Mark Catholic School are committed to providing an atmosphere where students grow and develop as unique individuals created in God’s image.

Parents are welcome and encouraged to get involved in any way possible in their child’s education. This further strengthens the connection between home, school and parish. Together we will make this a very successful year. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Principal, St. Mark School

About St. Mark

St. Mark Catholic School is situated in the town of Markstay, right next door to St. Marc Parish. We share the building with École Camille Perron, a school of the Grand Nord District School Board. We are truly a community and a family type school.

With only one classroom, our students form close relationships with each other and indeed, we all feel as if we are one big happy family! Our close knit school community contributes to our ability to offer much individualized teaching, and our students benefit greatly from the attention their teachers are able to give them on a daily basis.

We offer full programs from JK to grade 6, including Core French. Our students go on many excursions, attend Mass at St. Marc’s Parish once a week, have hot meals twice a month and visit the town library weekly. Our older students participate in many bridging activities with Marymount Academy and St. Charles College Elementary, both desinations for St. Mark graduates.

We celebrate our students’ accomplishments monthly with Student of the Month and Terrific Kid Awards. For a complete outline of activities, visit our website often and take a look at our school calendars and newsletters.

After St. Mark

Students graduating from St. Mark move on to St. Charles College Elementary or Marymount Academy for grades 7 & 8. Marymount is an all girls school serving students from grade 7 to 12.
