Principal's Message

Welcome to Mark Twain Elementary School. Our focus is on increasing student achievement to meet or exceed Common Core State standards in all academic areas including English Language proficiency. Aligned with our District's Mission of preparing our students for college and career, we are committed to providing a 21st century education relative to Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking (Four C's of the Common Core State Standards). Each staff member understands and realizes the potential in all students and works together through collaborative efforts with students, parents, and the community to support and maintain an environment conducive to academic and personal success. At Mark Twain Elementary, all stakeholders understand their role and responsibility in supporting classroom instruction, maintaining an educational focus at home, and utilizing resources at home to support student achievement.

I look forward to working with students and parents to develop a strong cohesive relationship, built on trust, with the community that I am proud to serve.
