Hello Titus families! My name is Molly McLaughlin and I am so excited to be back at Titus, this time as the QUEST teacher for the remainder of the school year! I attended Titus as an elementary student myself and attribute a lot of my success to many of the elementary teachers still here. I graduated from Penn State in 2018 where I received my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. In my free time I love to read good books, put together puzzles, and travel when I can. I look forward to working with all of your children!

Dear Titus Elementary School Families,
Please join me in the Titus library on January 21st from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. for this school year’s first “Community Connections” meeting.
Last year, we initiated these meetings in order to encourage frank conversations about a shared vision for the future of our schools. I was grateful for the feedback and ideas that our families shared and I look forward to this year’s sessions! I hope you can find time to attend.
A video introduction may be seen on the website at www.cbsd.org/communityconnections.

From Mr. Bocklet
Titus Families! Take advantage of this great program to introduce our 4th and 5th graders to the slopes!
Apply online at www.skipa.com
Any child in the 4th or 5th grade can ski or ride for FREE at all participating ski areas in the state of Pennsylvania with the 4th & 5th Grade Snowpass (when accompanied by a paying adult.) Never skied or boarded before, don't worry ... the first time is on us!
Just complete the online application. The Snowpass Program includes one Beginner package (in case the child has never skied or snowboarded before) and 3 lift ticket to EACH participating ski area. That's 63 days of skiing for up to a $40 processing fee (after Dec 1st). Amazing deal!
