5th Grade

September 3, 2019

Dear Parents,


Welcome to FIFTH grade!  My name is Mrs. Maria Lersch.

I am so excited that your child is going to be in my class!! This Fall will be my 25th year teaching at St. Mark School.  Your child will have the opportunity to learn about a wide range of subject areas, including the history of our great country.  And or course, as part of continuing to grow in our faith, we will discover the importance of the seven sacraments and how participating in the Mass will help us continue to become closer to Jesus.

Please contact me at your convenience if you have any questions or concerns.

Maria Lersch

Dear young people, do not bury your talents, the gifts that God has given you!  Do not be afraid to dream of great things!  -        Pope Francis
