Thank you Clara Rozmaryn!

We are very fortunate that Clara picked St. Mark’s as the site for her Girl Scout Gold Award project.  She designed, sketched, and supervised the painting of murals in the Education Wing entrance.  We can’t wait for you to see her depiction of Noah’s Ark, Jesus calling the disciples, and Jesus feeding the 5ooo.  In addition to the murals, Clara will also be creating curricula for classes to use to learn about these murals.  Clara went to preschool at St. Mark’s many years ago (she’s a high school junior now) and her mother teaches at the preschool currently.  We are grateful for Clara’s service!
