Greetings Twain Families,

Let me begin by saying that I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to serve as Principal and work with the wonderful staff and community that is Twain Elementary School.  I have heard wonderful things about the families, teachers, classified staff, PTA, and community working together to provide an outstanding education for our students.

What is Twain Day?

Twain Day is an end of the year event for all students, staff, and Twain families to enjoy together.  

Every Twain student receives a free ice cream sundae, a hot dog, popcorn, an opportunity to participate in the carnival booths, win a cake in the cake walk, receives a picture from the photo booth and gets two tickets to put into the class basket raffles.  Each class donates a theme basket with items such as games, movie night, sports, gardening, gift cards and so much more.  

Mark Twain PTA sponsors this fun event for all the students!  

Mark your calendars for Friday, May 29th from 2:00 to 5:00 PM to enjoy this event with your child.  

Volunteers Needed

If we do not have enough volunteers we will NOT be able to have all the activities!

To make Twain Day a success for all the students to enjoy we need volunteers!  If you can help for a few hours during the event, please contact Nancy Langevin at nlangevinof3@gmail.com or Christina Butler at Christyb17@aol.com.  Please provide your time frame you would like to help.

Change in Bylaws

Dear PTA Members,

Every (3) years the Mark Twain Elementary PTA is required to review our existing Bylaws and to identify proposed amendments.

Proposed Bylaw amendments are then submitted to The California State PTA Parliamentarian and once reviewed are returned to the Association.   The proposed amendments were shared in detail at the February PTA Association meeting. Please review the proposed amendments by clicking here

The Association will vote on the proposed amendments at the April Association meeting, and if approved,  these amendments will be adopted and will become part of our Bylaws.

Twain and Lowell Named Green Schools!

Green Award.jpg

Where are the greenest schools in America? Two of them are in Long Beach.

For the past five years, the U.S.  Department of Education has been trying to "inspire" schools to reduce their environmental impact and costs, improve the health and wellness of students and staff, and teach environmental skills. This year, Education Secretary Arne Duncan honored two Long Beach elementary schools with the Green Ribbon School Award. Read more.

Thanks to Everyone Who Came Out for the Education Celebration
