Saint Mark’s Open House Drew In Over 700 Attendees
Saint Mark’s High School welcomed more than 700 visitors during the Fall Open House on Sunday, November 1 to showcase the school’s academic arena, student life, athletics and the arts. All of the academinc department chairs, varsity coaches and administrators were in the gym to field any questions regarding their respective programs. Bishop Malooly of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington was on-site greeting families as they entered.
“It’s rewarding to see the excitement of prospective families,” said Matthew Evans, Director of Admissions. “We can’t wait to see many of them in our hallways next year.” The two interactive classrooms, one led by Social Studies Department Chair Guy Townsend '85 and the other by Anatomy teacher Stephanie Strocko '01, gave visitors a glimpse of the school’s innovative and engaging lessons. Prospective students and families joined current students on interactive campus tours. Saint Mark’s Alumnus Kevin Heitzenroder ’89 and Elizabeth Bacon-Heitzenroder ’89 took a trip down memory lane, while touring the campus with their daughter who is currently in eighth grade. The Heitzenroder family showed a serious and deep interest in iPad integration in the classroom and the online textbooks.
Saint Mark’s, a college preparatory Catholic high school, inspires young men and women to create a better world, one more pleasing to God and more helpful to others, by modeling faith, excellence, humility and integrity.
