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.

Notes from the Front Office

Please be aware the office staff cannot interrupt classroom instructions with messages to your students. This includes messages regarding after school pickup.  To ensure your child's safety, please be sure to inform your student of your after school plans prior to school each morning.  Thank you for your understanding.

Just a reminder to please make sure your children are sent to school wearing masks that properly fit their faces, and please make sure they have an extra in their backpacks.

Reminder: 3-5th grade students are testing this week. We are unable to interrupt testing. If your child has an appointment or there is an emergency, please let the office know, so they can pass the information on to administration. Please make sure your student gets plenty of sleep, a well-rounded breakfast, and that their computer is charged.

We had hoped to deliver pre-ordered yearbooks to kids this Friday, but the yearbook company still has not shipped them out, which means they will be delayed this year. We're going to extend online ordering until the day before we deliver the pre-ordered yearbooks to kids' classrooms, so you can still order them online after May 7. You also can turn in your envelopes with cash to pre-order your yearbook until yearbooks are sold out. Here is the information to order online:

The Mark Twain teaching staff is committed to communicating with you regularly about classroom events.   Unfortunately, due to safety precautions and District and State guidelines due to the Covid pandemic there are some new changes on campus.  Our school social worker, Mrs. Griffiths is available should you need further resources or have concerns.
  • No visitors (yes this includes parents) on campus.  For the safety of all students and staff we will not be letting visitors in the door or walk their child to class. 
  • Students will enter the building via the back playground doors as early as 8:10 – or bus arrival and go to their classrooms – and start their breakfast.          
  • All students must wear a mask while on campus (please send with two) They will not wear a mask while at lunch or recess.  Teachers will work with your child to help remind them to wear their mask – it is a learning opportunity and we will work on it together.
  • Please send your child with a water bottle as drinking fountains are closed – but our water bottle filling stations are still accessible.
  • All students and staff will be washing hands frequently and using hand sanitizers as needed. 

I know these are uncharted times, and a unique school experience – however, I know we will be stronger as a result of these changes and our kids will do a great job.  Please let me know if you need any support from our school staff as we work together.

Together in Education,

Ruthlee Caloiaro
