Big picture

Welcome Back, Comets!

We hope that our families have enjoyed a healthy, restful summer together. We are busy planning and preparing to have our Comets back at Twain in just two short weeks!

As we kick off this school year, our staff will be focused on creating a team environment where our Comets know that they are valued, welcome, and that they belong. We know that we are all BETTER TOGETHER when we work as a team, and this will be our overarching theme this year. While we know there are still many challenges and uncertainties as we head into this school year, we are committed to giving all of our Comets the best possible learning experience to allow them to grow academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally.

Here's some important information for you to help you plan for Back to School!
