WELCOME TO TWAIN!
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.

Twain Leadership Council
Would you consider becoming a part of the TLC? The TLC, Twain’s Leadership Council, is composed of the principal and representatives of the following: teachers selected by teachers at the school, other school personnel selected by other school personnel, and parents or guardians of pupils attending the school and/or community members selected by such parents or guardians.
The purpose of the council is to serve as an advisory committee for the principal in making decisions regarding the school’s budget and instructional programs.
The deadline to express interest and get your name on the ballot is Monday, September 22nd. Voting will take place at Back to School Night. For more information including meeting dates and times as well as the submission form, please click here.
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.
After School Supervision: UPDATE!!!
Extra, Extra, read all about it! Twain's after school supervision will resume on September 8th, 2014. The blacktop will be supervised between the hours of 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm.
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."

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.
