Congratulations to last week Paws for PRIDE winners: John O’Donnell, Adrianna Acors, Sophia Quinn, Chloe Conly, Jake Sciscio, Jessica Malizia, & Andrew McKale.

These students were chosen at random to be recognized and celebrated for demonstrating one of our five character traits - Pride, Respect, Individual Responsibility, Determination & Empathy. Thank you to all of the Titus families for your support of our Paws for PRIDE program.

PAWS for PRIDE Home Connection . . .

We are making the switch in our focus from Empathy to Pride for the months of November and December. To connect to home, we would like to hear about your family’s points of pride. Maybe someone learned to ride a bike or won a medal at a tournament. Perhaps someone in your family has tackled a difficult task, has gotten a promotion at work, or volunteered for a special event/charity. Whatever your family is proud of…we want you to share it with us. We will share your point of pride with our school community on the announcements. This will take the place of our t-chart homework. This is voluntary and is easy to do. Please email your information directly to Mrs. Horan and include the following:

  • Family Name
  • Child/Children’s names
  • Grade(s)
  • Teacher(s)
  • Brief description of your family’s Point of Pride

Thanks for all you do to help make Titus a great place! We look forward to celebrating with you!

4th Grade Heritage Presentations . . .

The fourth graders researched their family heritage and created Power Point presentations. With an audience of classmates and family members, students presented information about their heritage including foods, sports, family traditions, and music. Here is a picture of Eryn Wagner from Mrs. London’s class wearing a traditional German dress as she shares information about her family’s German heritage.
