What is Twain PTSA? Our Parent Teacher Student Associations is an advocacy organization dedicated to improving the education and well-being of all children at home, school, and in the community.  

Why get involved? Studies have shown that the more parents, family, and community members are involved in local schools, the more successful individual students and schools are as a whole. By getting involved, you can help direct PTSA goals and share what is important to you as a parent.  You will also show your child that you value their education. Parent and community involvement leads to great schools and exceptional students!
