Congratulations to last week's Paws for PRIDE winners: Katie Burroughs, Brennan Franklin, Gabriella Tropea, Dylan Shaw, Michael Menaker, Alexandra Charlton, and Klement Swartz.

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.

PSSA 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 April, 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.

Celebrating Earth Day . . .

Mrs. London’s 4th graders worked with their 1st grade buddies from Mrs. Costello’s class to create an “Acrostic Poem Garden” in celebration of Earth Day. Stop by the first grade hallway to see our poetic flowers in bloom and read about ways to protect Earth.

Support the Arts . . .

As the district begins to prepare for their annual art show, they would like to offer all families an opportunity to celebrate their passion for the arts. For more information on how you can support the art program through the purchasing of a t-shirt, please click here.

Walk for A Cause . . .

On Friday, May 8th at 2:00 PM, Titus students will be walking to support the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Make-a-Wish grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories, on average, every 38 minutes. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. Please join in our efforts to raise money! For more information please click here.

What can I donate?

  • Prior to the walk students will be ordering pretzels which will be distributed on the day of the walk. Each pretzel is $1.00 and a portion of proceeds from pretzel sales will go towards our fundraising efforts!
  • We will be accepting monetary donations of any amount on the day of the walk. (Please bring and place in any donation bucket on the day of the walk)

Look for sneakers in the 4/22 Wednesday folder! Color them and return to school so they can be displayed for the walk.
