PAWS for Pride . . .

Congratulations to our most recent winners in our Paws for PRIDE drawing - Alexis Conway, Aiden Elvidge, Karly Morton, Julia Schroeder, Knox Klemm, Brianna Lucas & Nicolas Baeta. These students were chosen at radom to be recognized and celebrated for demonstrating one of our five character traits - Pride, Respect, Individual Responsibility, Determination & Empathy.

Next week we will begin to focus on our next theme, "Respect." T-Charts will be coming home so families can talk about what respect looks like and sounds like to them. Thank you for the time and effort you put into your work on the Pride t-charts. One representative from each homeroom shared the highlights from their family t-charts on the morning announcements. Connecting discussions at home to what we are focusing on here at school makes our lessons in character development that much more meaningful. Thank you!

Mrs. Bucher’s 5th grade class created a music video about Pride. They were also showcased on this week’s announcements and showed some real life examples of how you can take pride in your accomplishments and your behavior all while making others feel accepted. Thank you, 5th grade. You can view their video by clicking on the link - Mrs. Bucher's Class Video.

Celebrating our 100th Day . . .

Kindergarten celebrated the 100th day of school on Friday, February 28th. It was a fun-filled day packed with “hundreds” of moments to explore numbers. The Kindergarten classes joined together “parade style” singing and marching their way to play Bingo.

The children were awarded their own personalized $100 certificate to commemorate this milestone. A great time was had by all!

Student Drop Off . . .

Please be aware that the school day begins at 8:35 in the classroom. It is my recommendation that children are dropped off no later than 8:30 in order to get to their classrooms for the start of the school day at 8:35. If a student arrives in their classroom beyond 8:35 they are considered tardy. The adults supervising the car-rider drop-off line will be on duty until 8:32. Students dropped off after 8:32 will more than likely not be able to make it to their classrooms on time for the start of the school day at 8:35.

Also, for safety reasons, students arriving to school prior to 8:15 need to be supervised by their parent/caregiver. We ask that they wait with their family member in a parking space until 8:15.

Finally, those driving their students to school, please utilize the car-rider drop-off line. For the safety of students and staff, children are not to be dropped off in the rear of the school, across Lower Barness Road or in the bus-loading/unloading area by their parents.

Operation Helping Hands . . .

United Way of Bucks County is asking your help with their annual Food Drive to support the BC food pantry. Titus will be accepting donations from Monday, March 3rd to Wednesday, March 12th.

PSSA Parent Information . . .

Central Bucks is proud of the achievement of our students, and would like to ensure we are giving parents the most current information available regarding testing. As the testing window approaches in March, please take the time to visit our web page and click on the link "PSSA Information for Parents" This page provides links to assessment results and to information about some of the assessments administered to students across the district.

Book Dedications . . .

Why dedicate a book to the Titus Library?

  • To celebrate a birthday
  • To honor a family member or friend

  • To say “thank you” to a teacher

  • To remember someone special

For your donation of $20, we will order a book for you, place a book plate in the book with your message on it, notify the person in whose honor it was given, and allow your child to be the first to check it out. The dedication form can be found on the Titus web site, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact Mrs. Moore, Titus librarian.
