General Meeting . . .

The next Home & School general meeting will be January 23rd in the Titus dining room beginning at 7:00 PM. There will be several Home & School items on the agenda plus Miss Braksator will be presenting on Titus' Student Advisory Committee.

This past October the students at Titus embarked on a new journey into student leadership through the creation of our Student Advisory Committee. The Student Advisory Committee is made up of 17 students from fourth, fifth, and sixth grade. The students have been working alongside Miss Braksator, Mrs. Landis, Mrs. London, and Mrs. Meehan to make school-wide decisions and assist in various school duties. By participating in Student Advisory the student advisors are able to give a voice to their peers and develop responsibility and leadership skills.

For more information, please join us on January 23rd.
