Laura Woods, Proud Principal of Mark Twain Elementary

Welcome to the Mark Twain Elementary School Web Site. My name is Laura Woods, and I am proud to have the privilege leading our Twain Comets community. As I begin my fifth year at Twain in this role, I'm excited to spend another year partnering with our amazing staff and supportive parents and community to give our Comets what they need to thrive academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally.

At Mark Twain, we are "Guiding our Comets to be compassionate, curious, creative citizens who will positively impact the world." Our staff is committed to this charge, and we all take this responsibility seriously. But we know that it takes the entire Mark Twain community working together to be successful in reaching our school's mission: our staff, parents, neighborhood, and business community all contribute to the success of our students. I am honored to be a part of the great things that are going on here at Mark Twain Elementary on a daily basis, even during such unusual times and under such unique circumstances.

The staff at Mark Twain takes a great deal of pride in partnering with our parents to ensure that we are communicating and working towards your child’s success. This year, we will continue to approach the challenges and uncertainties of these times with kindness, flexibility, and grace as we all work together to navigate some real challenges in our world that are impacting our schools and communities. We know that this continues to be a tough time for everyone, and we are committed to working with our Comets' families to make the best of these challenging times. Our priority is always the safety of our students, staff, and community, and we take this very responsibility very seriously.
