MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to provide a safe learning environment that is supportive of our students' potential as they develop academically and socially.  We strive to bridge the gap between what the students know and what they need to know.  We commit to building background knowledge, to scaffolding instruction, to providing a spectrum of materials and to giving ample time for cooperative interactions for all student.  We recognize that all students are capable of achieving high expectations while we celebrate all growth in learning as a success.  We are dedicated to working with parents and the community to ensure a strong educational foundation.

A message from Mrs. Caloiaro:


Hello Mark Twain Families, 

I know we are experiencing uncertain times right now and things are very different from what we have ever experienced.  First and foremost, we want you all to be safe.  As per Governor Sisolak and direction from our district, school is still going on; however, we are doing things very differently.  Mark Twain staff is currently working on lessons for our students for remote learning (i.e. your homes). 

Beginning Monday, March 23rd, students will begin their remote learning programs.  Most grade levels will provide information via their google classrooms; however, for those of you who may not have access to the internet, grade level packets will be available by Monday, March 23rd (either via our web page or in person.  Included will be information for students’ specials and additional support classes that they currently may attend such as resource room, ESL, or tutoring.  More information on pickup will be available soon.  A schedule will be posted on our Facebook page and our CCSD Mark Twain webpage soon, so be on the lookout please.  A schedule will be released to let you know what time you may pick up students' work and the process on how we will conduct the pick-up.  If you have more than one child at our school, please know you will be able to pick up all students' work at the same time and not need to come for multiple trips.  Unfortunately, parents and/or students will not be allowed into the building.  If your student is in band and has an instrument in the band room, it will be available for pick up as well.

Lastly a message to our Mark Twain Hawks: Students, please know your teachers are thinking of you daily - your teachers will be contacting you twice a week, as well as an additional staff member will be calling often to check on your progress and see how you are doing.  Parents - if your information is not updated and correct on IC, please email your student’s homeroom teacher with the correct contact information.  Just remember Students, we are still having school, and I know your parents or older siblings will help you out if needed.  Students, know you are loved by us all, and we miss your sweet smiles already.

Hugs from Mrs. Caloiaro, Mr. Sady, and your Mark Twain Family
