Join Friends and Family Campaign

Join the  Friends and Family Campaign 

 The Mark Twain PTO continues to strive to raise funds necessary to maintain the strength and stability of this community. Funds raised by the PTO, including the Friends and Family Campaign support an annual gift to school. This gift to our school provides our administration and teaching staff with needed funds that help them maintain their IB credentials and goals. This gift also allows our teachers to answer our children’s questions with demonstrations rather than being thwarted by budget constraints.

The funds raised by the PTO have also sponsored larger gifts such as a large portion of Huckleberry Park, new library books, and technology in the classrooms. In short, these funds help support our uniquely wonderful and thriving community. Over the years, funds have been accumulated by and through various fundraisers. Due to the fact that 1 family out of every 4 in our Twain community suffered damage during Hurricane Harvey, a number of these fundraisers have been cancelled. Specifically, we will not have a Fun Run or Square One Art this year.  Therefore, the Friends and Family Campaign will play an especially important role in closing these gaps.

Do you have Friends and/or Family in other states or cities? Were you waiting for some of these events to seek their support? Well, don’t wait! Now is the time! Please forward this link, post on social media or forward the entire Twain Times to give them an opportunity to support this wonderful community.

With your help we can accomplish our goals. Please take a moment to make a tax-deductible monetary donation to our Friends & Family campaign so that we can enrich the educational experience of each child.
