Mr. Keith Tonn

Welcome to Mark Twain Elementary’s school website. This site was created to assist families in learning about all of the wonderful programs and activities offered at Twain. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us via Web Support or call us directly at (586)439-6900.

As your principal, I am extremely proud to be a part of this community…a community committed to providing ALL students with a positive educational experience. Our partnerships with all stakeholders, including students, parents, and business partners, helps ensure all students are successful at Twain. It is an honor to be a Twain Comet! 

The staff at Mark Twain takes pride in working with parents to ensure each child is reaching their full potential.  Communication and cooperation between home and school are essential to promoting the best education for your child. We look forward to building a supportive, collaborative relationship with you so we can work together to give your Comet the best possible experience at Twain.

Mark Twain also has an active parent club. The Mark Twain Parent Club (M.T.P.C.) does a wonderful job of strengthening the home/school connection. In addition to financial support, many parent club members volunteer at Twain.The M.T.P.C. also reaches out to local community partners to provide extracurricular activities before, after and during the school day. Please check out the M.T.P.C. website to learn how to become part of this wonderful organization.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. Our staff is eager to partner with you to give all of our Comets the best possible experience for growth and development -- academically, behaviorally, emotionally, and socially -- during their time here.
