Parent Involvement

Ways parents get involved at Twain!


Our PTA (Parent Teacher Association) organization is very active on campus. This volunteer-run organization plans, funds and implements educational enrichment programs and activities that are vital to the success of our school and fosters a strong community spirit.  Parents can start small by assisting with minor tasks or they can dive right in by helping to organize some of our big events or programs.  Come and join us at one of our meetings and find out how you can help and what we are all about!  Our PTA meets the second Wednesday of every month at 6:30PM in the Twain cafeteria. We look forward to seeing you there!  To find out more about PTA, click here.


The D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) group is very active in building a strong community at Twain through sponsoring various events and activities. Having fathers and father-figures actively engaged in programs on campus has enhanced our school community and makes Twain feel like a family. The D.O.G.S. also work in concert with the PTA on many activities. Come and join us at one of our meetings and find out how you can help and what we are all about! We look forward to seeing you there! To find out more about D.O.G.S., click here.


Twain boasts an extraordinary number of VIPS (Volunteers In Public Schools) who are an integral part of our school's success. The classrooms and halls are filled each day with parent, grandparent and community volunteers who assist teachers with instruction of students, preparation of materials as well as field trips and on-campus activities. To participate in this very rewarding program, adults must complete an application and pass a TB test. Don't wait to fill out the application until the day you want to help. It takes a few weeks for the Long Beach School District (LBUSD) to process each application. Click here to visit the LBUSD website to download an application. Once you have completed the application, simply turn it into the office and our VIPS Coordinator will contact you when your application is approved.
