A Note from Mrs. Rosenthal

Mrs. Laurel Rosenthal
Welcome to Mark Twain Elementary School! We are looking forward to an exciting and meaningful school year. At Mark Twain, we recognize individual talents and skills and promote student achievement through unity of purpose, empowerment with responsibilities and building on strengths. We hope through a cooperative effort by our teachers, principal, parents, students, and members of our Carthage community, this school year will be one of the school's very best. The 1400 block of South Main Street has been a center of educational achievement for more than a century. Its record of service in the cause of learning began in 1888, when the first school building on the site was completed. That was the home of the Carthage Collegiate Institute, a building which remained there until it was razed in 1916 to make way for the present Mark Twain Elementary School, which opened in 1917. Our students are encouraged to recognize and develop to their full potential and to become lifelong learners and members of our world community.
We welcome your interest and invite you into our web page.
Laurel B. Rosenthal - Principal
