Summer 2018 We are so pleased to welcome new and returning students to St. Mark's this fall!
Summer 2018 Believe it or not, this will be an indoor play space in the fall! With a biblical theme, the space will provide both a creative and a gross motor play area for the preschool and the church school to enjoy.
The Pre-K class focused their projects on homes. They learned about different types of homes, drew their own homes and then created a three dimensional neighborhood (pictured here).

It is with great excitement that we announce the appointment of Prisca Spitz as the next Director of St. Mark’s Preschool, effective June 15, 2016.
Mrs Spitz has superior credentials, and we believe she will be a great leader of our school. She has worked in administrative and teaching capacities with preschool, elementary, and middle school students for twenty-three years. Mrs Spitz's educational philosophy aligns fully with the warm, nurturing, play-based environment at SMP, where we raise up the whole child–mind, body, and soul. She believes that children thrive in an environment with trusting and caring relationships between school and home. Gentle boundaries, thoughtful routines, and caring adults all create a nurturing program for young learners.
Mrs Spitz graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in General Studies from the University of Connecticut. In addition, she has an Associate of Arts degree from Bard College at Simons Rock and holds both a Certificate in Non-Profit Leadership and a Master of Science degree in Business Leadership from Manhattanville College.
