Welcome to Twain


Valerie Aragon

Dear Mark Twain Families,

I would like to thank you all for your support.  Being the Principal of Mark Twain has been a rewarding experience.  I have loved working with the students, staff and parents of Mark Twain.  I am proud of our growth and know that Twain will continue to be successful!

I would like to welcome Mrs. Barbara Pierce as the new principal of Mark Twain.  This is her 21st year in Pasco schools.  She has served as a  6th and 7th grade teacher , an assessment coordinator and as an administrator at Stevens and McLoughlin Middle Schools.  Mrs. Pierce  is very excited to come and work with the students, teachers and parents of Mark Twain!  Help me to welcome Mrs. Pierce.

We are finishing up our MAP testing for grades 3rd-5th, if you haven’t already be sure to ask your student about their scores, we have seen amazing growth!

Please do not schedule any appointments during  testing. It is very important that your student be at school, on time and ready to do his/her best!

Go Wildcats!

Mrs. Aragon


 You are a very important part of helping to prepare your child for the SBAC (reading writing math and Science MSP test for 5th grade.

Here are some tips for you to help prepare your child for testing day. Please do not schedule doctor or dentist appointments during testing days. Be sure your child has plenty of sleep. A nutritious breakfast the day of the test is necessary. Talk about the test and test preparations.

Helpful Tips for Students with Test Anxiety:

· Always think positively about the test.

· Realize that no one gets all the answers correct.

· Stay relaxed and take a few deep breaths when feeling overwhelmed.

· Take your time during the test and don’t get frustrated if others finish before you.

· Apply the good study habits and test-taking skills you have learned in class.
