Paws for Pride . . .

Congratulations to last week's Paws for PRIDE winners: Jonah Snyder, Ben Treude, Katie Macaulay, Christopher Bennett, Ava Harding, Lorelei Robbins, and Olivia Dallmer.

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.

What Do You Think?

As my third year of being Titus' Principal begins to wind down, I wanted to reach out to all of the Titus families and get your thoughts on the past three years. I value your thoughts and your feedback . . . for I could not do this job without you.

Sometime between today and Friday, June 19th, I ask that you take a few minutes and complete this short survey. Simply click on the banner below, and thank you for a great year!

Annual Summer Library Program . . .

We are excited to share information regarding Titus' Annual Summer Library Program. Please take time to explore the links below for important information regarding this Summer's Library Program. Sign-up sheets are posted in the rotunda of the school.

For any additional information and or questions please reach out to Ms. Wallace, Miss Brennan, or Mrs. Byrne.

Your School Supplies Delivered Right to School . . .

Wouldn’t it be great if you could wave a magic wand and then Abra Cadabra - all of your child’s school supplies are neatly packed and waiting for him/her on his/her desk on the first day of school? No waiting in lines during the last week of summer when you should be out enjoying yourself! No running around to two or three stores trying to find every item on the list! Well this is no magic trick – this can really happen! We are excited to announce that Titus will be offering the convenient services of SchoolKidz, Inc. and their Teacher Tailored® back-to-school supply kit program. Please see the letter that was sent in home in this past Wednesday folder for more information.

Remember, coming soon is a letter that will contain the website to order your child’s supplies online. Ordering will take place between Monday, June 15th and Friday, June 26th!

Funky, Freaky, Fundraiser Friday was Fabulous!

Guest contributors: Evan Goldberg and Eryn Wagner

Last Friday, Titus celebrated Funky, Freaky, Fundraiser Friday with a mash-up of spirit days. It was a big success. Students’ dollar donations really added up - we as a school raised over $400! All money is being donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Students in all grade levels had crazy hair, pajamas, and silly hats. One first grader even wore a flower pot on her head. It was an amazing day and all for a good cause!

Well Deserved . . .

On Thursday, June 4th, the Central Bucks School District held its annual retirement & recognition ceremony. During the ceremony two of our own received some well-deserved recognition. Mrs. Jennifer Horan and Mrs. Stephanie Thomas were recognized for their time and efforts put towards our children every day. From the PAWS for PRIDE character traits that we celebrate every day to the art work that decorates our halls, these two make each and every day a little more special for everyone at Titus!

I should also mention, that for Mrs. Thomas, this recognition comes on the coattails of being recognized as Bucks County Teacher of the Year for 2015 - truly something to celebrate.

Congratulations, Mrs. Horan and Mrs. Thomas!

Chick-fil-A Spirit Nights - A SUCCESS!

Thank you parents, children, staff and the Titus community for a very successful year with our Chick-fil-A Spirit Nights. Four spirit nights were held throughout the school year; each of which generated a significant money for the school. In competition with other schools, Titus was awarded the highest possible rank of Platinum Status by Chick-fil-A and won the "Highest Dollar" night, which granted an additional $175.00 from Chick-fil-A.

We hope to continue this success next year!

Box Tops Recap . . .

A Yearbook Thank You . . .

Now that the yearbook has arrived I wanted to send a HUGE thank you to the many people who helped put it together. I would especially like to thank Donna Fischer for putting together the 6th grade portrait pages; Laura Zakrzewski for taking the 6th grade class picture and putting the 6th grade friend pages together and Justine Lacey for the FABULOUS 6th grade memory pages. I also want to thank Lisa Woltjen, Annemarie Sauder and Michele Peacock for helping type Lovelines, log orders, and put the final book together. And finally a big Thank You to the many parent volunteers who created the wonderful classroom collages. There would be no yearbook without all of your help! THANK YOU!!
