Spring Book Fair

Reading for pleasure has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps kids discover who they are. Help your child develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading by:
  • Setting the example. Let your kids see you read!
  • Having a collection of books in the home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
  • Supporting Mark Twain’s Scholastic Book Fair. Allow your kids to choose their own books they’ll love.

Our Buy One, Get One Free Book Fair is back again this year! Stock up for summer from a wide selection of books. Buy one for yourself and get one of equal or lesser value FREE. Give one to a friend or help refresh our teachers’ class libraries!

Book Fair dates: Monday, April 22 — Friday, April 26 2019

Shopping hours: 7:00-8:00 a.m.; 3:00-4:00 p.m.
We need your help to make the Book Fair great! To volunteer, please sign up here.

Ms. Patin Named Principal of the Year

We were thrilled to learn that Ms. Patin was named HISD West Area Principal of the Year.  She is a true leader in every sense of the word and we are so lucky she is ours.  On behalf of all students at Twain, Ms. Musters’ first grade class developed their own words to the song ‘Joy to the World’ by Three Dog Night to celebrate Ms. Patin.  All of the first graders serenaded her in the rotunda while she stood on a giant  homemade gold star.
