Mark Twain's October celebration is Tuesday, October 31. Students are asked to wear their costume to school (costumes should be school friendly-no gore, violence, weapons, or masks). The parade begins at 1:15pm along the parent pick-up path. Please see the attached images for additional information. #marktwain #twaincusd1 #leaderinme

We love our community leaders. Last week, the firefighters helped us at Mark Twain with our fire drill & then led each class through the fire safety trailer. Today they returned for our monthly celebration to teach us about how they use their leadership qualities in the community. Thank you CFD #leaderinme #twaincusd1 #westicktogether #marktwain #communityleaders #7habits
