President's Message

Hello Twain Families!

Welcome to the start of another wonderful year at Mark Twain Elementary School! I would like to wish our new families the warmest welcome, and returning families a sincere welcome back. I know this year is going to be amazing with many wonderful and enriching activities planned for our students and families.


PTA is the bridge between family and school life. The collaboration of parents and teachers make it possible for every child to reach their potential.


I look forward to family fun nights planned this year such as Movie Night, Trunk or Treat, Science Programs, Art Programs, and More!


There are so many positive ways we can work together to benefit our students. All ideas, suggestions, and help are gratefully accepted! We are committed to bringing as many willing parents, teachers, and community members on board as possible. Some of the committees that you might be interested in volunteering for include Fit-A-Thon, Veteran’s Day Celebration, Green Team, Grandparents Day, Book Fair, Twain Day, etc. Even if you can’t volunteer very often, every little bit helps! Let’s make this year at Mark Twain the best one ever! 


The first PTA meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 13th at 6pm in the Cafeteria

Childcare for all ages & dinner will be provided.


To help kick off the school year, we are holding a membership drive. Paying homage to the winter Olympics in 2018, our theme is “Go for Gold!” Joining the PTA does not commit you to any time commitments or require you to help in any way during our events. Joining PTA is an investment in your child’s education, and in your community. We invite you to be a part of making the school the best it can be. Join PTA today!


You can stay informed of school events by reading Twain Talk emails, flyers sent home, attending Coffee Talk, reviewing the school website for posts, and by liking our Facebook page (Mark Twain PTA). We hope you can join us at our PTA meetings which are held the 2nd Wednesday of every month.


If at any time you have comments, suggestions, or would like to help with any upcoming fundraiser or program please do not hesitate to contact us! There is a comment card in the office on the calendar bulletin board or you can always email me at


We look forward to working with you!
