Newman Catholic Schools
NCES: St. Mark
Newman Catholic Elementary School at St. Mark Parish recognized those special men and women who have served or are currently serving in the military.
Parents and veterans were invited to attend a special Veterans Day prayer service. After the prayer service, special guests joined the students for lunch. The NCES: St. Mark students who are in Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts led the student body and veterans in the flag ceremony.
We also recognize the sacrifices the veterans make to "change" the lives of so many people. Therefore, NCES: St. Mark along with the other Newman Catholic Schools conducted a "change" penny drive. NCES: St. Mark collected $275 in donations, which were given to the Never Forgotten Honor Flight.
