Welcome to the Friends of Mark Twain website. You'll find lots of information and resources for parents and students!

What's Happening Now!


FOMT was excited to present the award-winning documentary "Screenagers: Growing up in the Digital Age,” and its recent follow up film "Screenagers: The Next Chapter" to our Mark Twain families and our growing community of neighborhood schools in March.  Both films were shown during the school day to our students as well.

Thank you to all who made this possible!

Fitness Fun Day

PLEASE NOTE DUE TO COVID 19 SCHOOL CLOSURES THIS HAS BEEN POSTPONED! We will update the community once we have a new date.
Mark Twain’s Fitness Fun Day will take place sometime next school year all day in PE classes. Then, immediately after school, interested students who have committed to raising the suggested amount of $30 for Mark Twain, will participate in the amazingly fun Color Run! 
The run is optional, and is offered as a fun way to help raise money for our school. Students can register to run at MarkTwain.causevox.com. It takes just a few minutes. Get six friends, family members or neighbors to donate $5/each, and your student is off to the races.   
If you would like to sponsor the event or donate water, cuties/oranges, healthy snacks, prizes, and incentives, please email Ruthie. Thank you!
