Jacqueline Williams 02 - 2.jpg

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.

Morning Supervision

12incone.jpgWe 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. 

Please keep in mind that students should be picked up by 4:00 pm.  Failure to adhere to the "by 4:00 pm" pickup time will result in parents not being able to utilize the after school supervision. 
We would appreciate any donation.  Cash is accepted.  A check needs to be written out to LBUSD and in the memo section you should write Twain Gift.

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.
