Teammates are RESPECTFUL
We expect all Comets to be...
As part of our "Team Twain" theme this year, we will continue to teach, model, and expect RESPECTFUL behavior from our Teammates. We know that RESPECT helps us to work together effectively, which will help us to be "Better Together." We invite you to join us in encouraging your Comets to be respectful - to their peers, to our staff, to others outside of school, and to themselves.
Our Comets had a Great Time Celebrating Spirit Week Last Week!
Preventing Issues Before They Occur
I'm guessing many of you have heard of the national trends that emerge from time to time on social media, in particular on Tik-Tok. Seeing students across the country and right here in Metro Detroit vandalize their school bathrooms and steal property is disheartening. At Mark Twain, we work hard to create a culture that is counter to these types of behaviors as we teach students about respect, cooperation, and kindness, to name a few.
It is so disappointing that children and young adults are being encouraged and celebrated on social media for engaging in destructive behaviors. Please help us by proactively speaking with your children about making good choices and not engaging in these social media challenges. These types of behaviors have serious consequences for students, and we want to help keep our Comets from putting themselves in this type of situation.
As always, we appreciate our families and your partnership with us as we" Guide our Comets to be compassionate, curious, creative citizens who will positively impact the world."
NEWLY UPDATED FPS QUARANTINE INFORMATION
Remember, the best way to do YOUR PART to help keep our community healthy and in school teaching and learning is to keep children with any potential sign of illness at home until the cause is determined by a medical professional.
