Saint Mark’s School welcomed new students and their families as it kicked off the school year with the annual Fall Fest on Saturday at its campus in Altadena. More than 500 attendees enjoyed a fun-filled day of delicious food and baked goods, music, bounce houses, laser tag, the ever-popular confetti eggs, a pumpkin patch and a special reptile show. This year’s Fall Fest was chaired by Paige Hutton and Rachelle Arredondo, who led a group of dedicated parent volunteers. This community-wide event is an annual tradition. Alumni return to campus to participate and volunteer, along with parents and members of St. Mark’s church.
