The Mark Twain PTA has launched a new monthly fundraising program that provides restaurant quality foods for your family at a value while returning a percentage of the purchase price to our school. Each month an order sheet will be available online. You’ll find many of the items on the order sheet are products you use on a daily basis. In addition, there will always be something new to keep your breakfast, lunch or dinner “menus” interesting! We are partnering with Springfield Estates Elementary School for this fundraiser because the more we order, the higher the profit we can earn. If you’re interested in ordering, you can go to www.marketday.com. Enter school code 16604 (it will read Springfield Estates). Check out the fundraising page to see more!

EDISON SPORTS DAY AT TWAIN! This past Monday, May 13th, Twain 8th graders were introduced to the various sports offered at Edison and other FCPS high schools through their PE class. Students were given information about sports physicals and also had the opportunity to meet various Edison coaches as well as Janine Jenkins, Edison’s athletic trainer. Each sport had a sign-up sheet for students to give their name, phone and email for the coaches. It was an exciting day for Twain 8th graders and another reminder that their middle school years will soon be coming to a close.
