WELCOME TO TWAIN!
Greetings Twain Families,

First, let me begin by saying thank you to all the parents who volunteered to serve on Twain's Leadership Council (TLC). The ballots have been counted, and the winner is....Gail Testa-Del Gaudio. Congratulations Mrs. Del Gaudio. Mrs. Del Gaudio will serve a two year term, and we look forward to working with her.
Jacqueline Williams, Ed.D.
Twain Elementary School
We appreciate students arriving to school on time each day, but parents please be mindful that since there is no adult supervision before 7:40 am, students should not arrive to school before that time each morning.
On 9/8/2014 we had almost 20 students dropped off at 7:20 am. For safety reasons, we have to keep an account of parents dropping students off before 7:40 am.
Please be mindful that there is no adult supervision on campus before 7:40 am.
We are no longer asking parents to complete 3 Emergency Cards! Please visit Parent Vue to update your child's emergency card information online. You can log into Parent Vue at https://parentlbusd.lbschools.net/, go to the Student Info tab then click "Edit Information."
Please be sure to edit/add the following information:
* Correct home, cell and work telephone number.
* Telephone numbers of three other adults to whom we can release your child in the event of an emergency.
* Name and telephone number of your doctor in the event of an emergency.
* Your current email address
Parent Volunteers Needed
In order to start our Valet, we are desperately in need of parent volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering from 7:40 am - 8:00 am, please email Mrs. Carlson at email@example.com or call her at 562-421-8421.

Twain and Lowell Named Green Schools!
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.
