Curriculum Focus

Our teachers work collaboratively to enhance effective teaching practice and to provide increased opportunities for student engagement in learning.  School Improvement Team members annually review EQAO data to identify critical focus areas, and all teachers make use of assessment data to ensure their lessons are purposeful and that their teaching practices effectively address areas of need.  Our goal is to deliver differentiated assessment-based instruction and to offer supports through the use of technology, including assistive and interactive technology for the purpose of improving student achievement and success for all students.   

Environmental Focus

St. Mark continues to support green initiatives by reducing waste, encourage recycling and find new ways to reduce our energy and water consumption. Our students and parent partners take an active role in leading our green initiatives.  

Parent Community Involvement

St. Mark Catholic School Council actively engages in developing, encouraging and promoting activities which enhance the quality of school programs and improve levels of student achievement. Council membership includes parent representatives, teaching and non teaching staff members, parish representatives and community representatives.  In addition, parent volunteers are essential and valued members of our school community.  As partners in education, they have been actively involved in assisting teachers in the classroom; with organizing and running our school BBQ and fundraisers; assisting with our teams, clubs, wellness programs and our nutritional snack program, lunch days, pasta night and many student/school events and activities.
