Please join us for our annual Mark Twain Middle School Tiger Fest!

This will be an opportunity for students and parents/guardians to pick up class schedules, receive locker combinations, practice opening lockers, join the PTA, visit the clinic to drop off medication, buy Twain spirit wear, reload your lunch accounts, meet some teachers, and ask any questions prior to the start of school.

You are invited to attend according to the following schedule:

 3:00-4:45 pm:   7th Graders & 8th Graders with Last Name A-K

Tiger Fest is also time when required FCPS forms will be submitted.  This information will be sent closer to August 18th.

Are you going to miss Tiger Fest?

Don’t panic! Feel free to stop by Mark Twain’s main office between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm on one of the following days - Thursday, August 19 or Friday, August 20.  Can’t make any of these dates? Still, don’t panic! Forms will be collected throughout the first week of school.

***Masks must be worn by everyone in attendance. Also, to limit the number of people in the building, we ask that only parents/guardians and Twain students attend Tiger Fest. Thank you for your understanding.

Jump Start

This program is an amazing opportunity for our students to become familiar with Mark Twain before the first day of school. Our rising 7th grade program runs from Monday, August 9 – Wednesday, August 11 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. There is no cost to attend and transportation will be provided from your child’s elementary school. This is a great chance to learn how to open a locker, read a middle school schedule, hear from our teachers, and meet new friends.
