We look forward to seeing everyone this Saturday for HollyDay breakfast. Breakfast will be served from 7:30-10:30am. If you have attended in the past, you know Santa Shop has been part of our HollyDay Breakfast. We are trying something this year with an opportunity for kids to make 4 crafts and wrap them up to give to someone special. #twaincusd1 #cusd1 #hollyday #pta

Ms. Dennis' class at Mark Twain participated in a Glow Party Day as part of the Get Your Teach On Rock the School event last week! Students composed glow in the dark shapes, wrote spooky sight words, counted spiders in a web, painted, played games, & had an awesome dance party!

At Mark Twain we have developed our building wide WIGS (Wildly Important Goals) for the year. One of those goals is for 80% of our students to be present at least 90% of the school year. Our Quarter 1 progress report is included, along with our short-term goals for Quarter 2. We will continue to make and report on short term goals throughout the year with the hopes of meeting our Attendance WIG. We recognize families are a HUGE part of meeting our attendance goal and appreciate everyone's help with this throughout the year! #twaincusd1 #cusd1 #leaderinme #WIGs #westicktogether #attendancematters

Mark Twain students were excited to have CHS students from Mrs. Stark's Spanish I class visit and read "Brown Bear Brown Bear, What Do You See?" in Spanish. The CHS students are learning colors and animals in Spanish and did a great job leading a read aloud to the Kindergarteners. #twaincusd1 #marktwain #chscusd1 #cusd1 #leaderinme #winwin

Thank you Charleston Fire Department for helping us with our first Leader in Me monthly celebration. With Fire Prevention Week approaching, it was the perfect time to learn how Fire Fighters and EMTs are community leaders. The Charleston Fire Department will also be here Thursday to help us with our fire and evacuation drill. #twaincusd1 #marktwain #westicktogether #leaderinme #communityengagement

Ever wonder what it would be like to tie-dye with 200 three, four, five and six year olds? Take our word for it, it's epic (and messy 😉). Thank you Ms. Thompson and the CMS art students who helped and the CHS students who used their lunch period to help! We may be biased, but think our Leader in Me shirts turned our amazing! #Twaincusd1 #marktwain #westicktogether #leaderinme

Each week, three Mark Twain students are chosen to represent the school as Star Students. These students are chosen based on their leadership qualities and display of the 7 Habits. The star students of the week can be found on Mark Twain's web page. Be sure to check each week to see another group of students who are amazing students and leaders! Say hello to our first Star Students for the 22-23 school year. We are proud of these three! #twaincusd1 #marktwain #westicktogether #leaderinme

Ms. Dennis' Kindergarten class at Mark Twain became Secret Story Word Detectives today! They received offical detective badges with top level security clearance, and their own magnifying glasses. The Kinder Spy Agency gave them their first mission: learn the story for Superhero A, and record the secret clues and words with the sound in their mission journal!

Today was the start of a great partnership between CHS and Mark Twain as High School students from Kermit's Cove spent their first day serving as a teacher helper at Mark Twain. CHS students will spend every M,W,F at Mark Twain helping in a PreK or Kindergarten classroom. We look forward to watching CHS and Mark Twain students grow and succeed through this program!! #leaderinme #twaincusd1 #chscusd1 #weareone #futureteachers

Reflecting back to two weeks ago. At Meet the Teacher, families wrote their child's name on the blacktop for them to find the next day as a reminder that their parents were thinking of them. It is amazing how much growth we have seen in just 11 school days. Students are rocking the school routines and have acclimated to school so well. We know we only get 178 days with these kids and if the first 11 are an indication, it is going to be an AMAZING year! #marktwain #twaincusd1 #westicktogether

It was fun to see so many kids along the parade route!!! Mark Twain's float sure made a statement. We were proud to see two of our alumni voted as Homecoming King and Queen #whereroyalsgettheirstart. We have already started planning our float for next year. Thank you R&W Trucking for the truck and trailer and Ron Heddins for driving! And, thank you to the staff at Mark Twain for being awesome! Tomorrow we wrap up Homecoming week with red & gold day. #gotrojans ❤️💛❤️💛 #twaincusd1 #marktwain #westicktogether #homecoming
