The Twain Tiger Times

Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Mark Twain Elementary School!

    We are a family of learners that celebrates an abundant amount of pride, parent and community support, and talented and hardworking educators that consistently go above and beyond for kids. The family atmosphere in our building models love, kindness, and a genuine commitment to the well-being of all students, staff, and families.

    At Twain Elementary, we recognize the importance of a collaborative approach between the school, home, and community in order to create an environment for all learners to thrive. We hope you will embrace our approach and be involved in your learner’s education. It takes a village to ensure the success of all of our Tigers!

    Our Twain Tigers are respectful, responsible and caring which makes Twain Elementary the best place to learn and grow. Prioritizing these simple fundamentals and coupling them with high expectations for all are important to our Twain Family.  We strive to create an innovative, supportive and equitable environment for each and every member of our Tiger Family.  

    We are grateful and excited to engage in this learning experience with you. Help us help our learners thrive!  Thank you for entrusting us with this opportunity!  We are all in for ALL Tigers!
