January On the left, the Fours transformed their classroom into a Pizza Parlor! They made fresh pizzas in our kitchen and enjoyed their creations. On the right, the High Five Friday group celebrated Three Kings Day; here they are showcasing their crowns.
February The Pre-K Fives displayed dioramas they made of different animals and their habitats. Each child chose one animal to make from clay and create the animal’s natural environment. The class then invited students from the Fours class to hear each child present his/her project and facts about the animals.

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.
