Pastor Martha blessed our new Sensory Garden with the Threes and Fours classes during our first Chapel of the year.
January 2018 The Fours class enjoy some indoor gross motor activities while outside it snows and sleets. We love having a large space to get some exercise in the winter!
January 2018 The Pre-K Fives have been learning about Habitats this winter. They created a web of ideas and then have completed projects to demonstrate their learning. Below are pictures to show various habitats and one student working one-on-one with her teacher on a three dimensional diorama.
Winter 2018 We can't have enough fun with snow people this winter!
Winter 2018 The weather outside is frightful, but the Twos classes are having a great time inside!
The Pre-K class focused their projects this fall 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.
