    Marathi Shala

    About Marathi Shala

    Marathi shala for kids of St. louis was started by 'Bagwe' family almost 5-years back and eventually was taken forward by Mrs. Sunita Sankpal and Mrs. Mayuri. With all the hard-work put up by these great volunteers, we are able to provide a high level of marathi education to our future generations in association with BMM. Kids will not only learn marathi here but will also get a chance to know our renowned and deep rooted marathi cultural by knowing marathi literature(poetry, novels, history, biography, essays).


    Classes are held every Sunday for an hour. Kids from the age group of 4-1/2 years are encouraged to take advantage of this great opportunity provided by STLMM & BMM. You can register your child in Marathi Shala by ing Mrs. Sunita Sankpal or Mrs. Mayuri (Email to: st.louismarathishala@gmail.com) or STLMM Email id: stlmmteam@gmail.com
