Mark Twain’s Birthday Celebration
A fun annual tradition at Twain is to celebrate the birthday of the man our school is named after. Each year we celebrate Mark Twain’s birthday by providing cupcakes for every student and staff member. This year, our celebration will be held on Thursday, December 3rd. Students and staff members always enjoy this celebration!
We need lots of parent help to make this celebration a success, with just under 1,000 students at Twain, we’re going to need a lot of cupcakes! Parents can help by sending in cupcakes (homemade or store bought) and parent help will also be needed to pass out cupcakes at lunch. Donations of nut free, dairy free and gluten free cupcakes are always appreciated for our students with food allergies (please mark if donating special cupcakes). To sign up to help, please visit: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c4facaf2da6fb6-mark1
Twain is applying, in partnership with Edison High School, to become an IBMYP school. Check out this brochure for more information on this exciting process!
