Saint Mark's Blue-Gold Week 2017
We are proud to announce that this school year is the 35th anniversary of the Blue-Gold program, and we are celebrating our 31st Annual Fashion Show at Saint Mark’s.
The goal of Blue-Gold at Saint Mark’s High School is for students to develop an awareness and appreciation of individuals with intellectual disAbilities as they learn about their talents and abilities. We support the DFRC (Delaware Foundation Reaching Citizens with Cognitive disAbilities) through our friendship program, peer activities, and fundraisers. Money raised is donated to DFRC for the educational and social needs of citizens in Delaware with cognitive disabilities, as well as the Saint Mark’s Blue-Gold Scholarship Fund. Over the past 30 years we have donated over $500,000 dollars to the DFRC.
Blue-Gold Week 2017 will be held from March 27 through March 30, kicking off with our student organized Fashion Show on March 24 and 25.
