  • Message from Mr. Bengel: “I look forward to every school year because it brings me joy to get to know every student and his or her family who I get to work side by side with. It is important to me to get to know every student’s strengths and weaknesses, so I can best help him or her reach his or her educational goals. I want every student at St. Mark’s to be successful in school and in whatever God has planned for him or her. Most importantly, I want to share the love of Jesus with all of my students, so their faith will continue to grow and we can all celebrate in heaven together someday.”
