Preschool Director’s Message

Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Preschool!

As the Preschool Director, I can tell you that doing what is in the best interest of our students is the driving force behind how we operate. I truly believe that special people are the catalyst for special schools. We are blessed with a dedicated and loving Preschool staff who guide our children to work hard and play hard, so that they are well prepared for Elementary school. We also have a wonderful community of parents who are deeply concerned about their child’s education and well-being. These qualities help create the warm and caring family environment we strive to maintain for our children and staff.

Please contact the school office if you would like to make an appointment to tour our school.

Once a Lion, Always a Lion!

In His service,
Lori Muñoz
Preschool Director
