5th Grade Book Share . . .

The fifth grade enjoyed sharing their favorite books in creative ways recently. After writing a brief summary of the text, they chose to create a map, sculpt an important character, create a setting collage, write about what the main character might be like in 20 years, and more!

A Time to Give Thanks . . .

Fifth grade created quite a SPECTACULAR hallway display by coming together to create a turkey made up of unique feathers. Each student created a feather that represents either what they are thankful for or what makes them special. Come and check it out the next time you are at Titus!

Special thanks goes to Mrs. Rothman for creating the turkey and to Nicole Tasey, Jacqui Worth, Olivia Schilling, and Lexi Riddell for helping to securely hang all the feathers!

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.
