A fun-for-the-whole-family fundraiser is our annual Paint a Tile opportunity. Parents and children purchase a tile and paint whatever they want on it, using our special tile paint. We glaze the tiles and then install them on the walls of our preschool, providing a lasting happy memory for us of your child and family, and passing on the legacy of Saint Mark's Preschool. The Tile Fundraiser is held at different times each year. Please look out for details in the weekly email.
Our annual Trike-a-Thon raises funds for our sister school in Haiti. In previous years, monies from the event have been donated to City of Hope Hospital in honor of a student here, St. Jude’s Childrens Research Hospital, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Our students get to learn about compassion and gratitude, and helping those who are struggling, alone or lacking the things we often take for granted. By raising money through our Trike-a-Thon, we are also raising awareness of disease and disaster that affect children in our own community and across the globe.
All students participate in the Trike-a-Thon. Families have the chance to collect sponsorships and/or make a donation as children ride laps around our bike yard. This is a favorite of the kids here. We also take this opportunity to discuss bicycle safety with our children.
From time to time, we sell t-shirts with the school's logo prominent in the design. We will announce pre-orders to you so that you get the sizes you actually need. Kids love to show off their school, and we love it when they do!
