Welcome to the Mark Twain Elementary School Web Site. My name is Laura Woods, and I am excited to join the Mark Twain community this year.
As your principal, I am proud to be a part of the Mark Twain community. Our mission at Mark Twain is “Learning for all, whatever it takes.” This philosophy guides our commitment to all of our students. It takes the entire Mark Twain community working together to be successful in reaching our school's mission: our staff, parents, neighborhood, and business community all contribute to the success of our students. I am honored to be a part of the great things that are going on here at Mark Twain Elementary on a daily basis.
The staff at Mark Twain takes a great deal of pride in partnering with our parents to ensure that we are communicating and working towards your child’s success. Through our Professional Learning Communities, our staff has time to collaborate on a consistent basis to coordinate their teaching, share ideas, and work together to give all students the attention they deserve.
Our Parents Club is also very involved and does a fantastic job bridging the link between home and school. They assist our teachers in many ways, both financially and in their many volunteering efforts. They provide extra-curricular opportunities for our students and they reach out to the community to provide students with additional learning experiences during the school day. I hope you will look for opportunities to become a part of the many efforts of the Mark Twain Parent Club.
Please visit our website often to find out what is happening at our school. If you have any additional questions or would like more information on any of our programs or curriculum, please feel free to contact me.
I am looking forward to a great school year! I am eager to build relationships and get to know our Mark Twain families. Please do not hesitate to stop me when you see me during arrival and dismissal to introduce yourself or to say hi.
