Principal’s Message

Dear Twain Families,

It was a blast to see a sea of green today for a St. Patrick’s Day spirit day!  We were definitely feeling lucky for the beautiful weather and all of our incredible Twain Eagles!

Students and staff are off next week for Spring Break.  We wish everyone a fun and safe break!  We will return to school on Monday, March 28.

Below are a few announcements to share.  Please reach out for anything and have a wonderful day.
