Summer Reading Log

Congratulations to all Titus students who have completed and returned their summer reading log. All logs were due today, Friday, September 6th. We look forward to celebrating your summer reading accomplishment on Monday, September 9th with an ice cream treat.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Line

Thank you to all of our parents in the car rider drop-off and pick-up lines in the morning and afternoon. We greatly appreciate your patience as we work out the most efficient procedures for both times of the day.

If you are picking up your child(ren) in the afternoon, we would suggest using the placard that your child(ren) brought home this week and attaching it to the passenger side visor so it can be easily seen by all Titus staff members. This will assist us in getting your child to your car as quickly and safely as we can.

Thank you again for your cooperation with our new procedures!

Walkers and Bicylist Reminders

If your child(ren) is a walker or rides their bike to and from school, please remind them of the importance of staying on the path and respecting our neighbor's properties along the pathways. We show our Titus pride in and out of school by being respectful, not littering and not removing any items from our neighbor's yards.

Thank you for always showing your Titus Tiger Pride!

Online Student Emergency Form

Each year, the Central Bucks School District asks our families to complete the Online Student Emergency Form. This form ensures that student information is accurate. This year, we are asking that you complete your family's form online by September 14, 2019.

The online form will ask you to confirm and/or update the following information:

  • Demographic Information
  • Emergency Contacts
  • Health Information, including permission for emergency care and analgesic administration
  • Media Release Preferences

Click here to be directed to your Parent Portal account to complete the Online Student Emergency Form. You can also click the document below (How to OLR form) for step by step directions. Thank you for taking the time to update this very important information.

Don't Forget Clearances

Titus will expect all potential volunteers to complete their paperwork for clearances prior to assuming any volunteer/chaperone role within the school. This will ensure we are in line with district and state expectations.

Who Needs Clearances: An individual who is responsible for the child's welfare or has direct contact with children. Pennsylvania law requires all persons having direct contact with school children to obtain background checks and clearances. In the best interest of the safety and security of our students, Central Bucks School District required the submission of these clearances prior to volunteering during the school year. Approved volunteers are given an identification card to be presented at the school (along with your photo ID, such as a driver's license) when volunteering. Please allow 7-10 days after you have submitted your online application for receipt of the ID card.

Additional information and steps on how to complete your clearances can be found on our district website by clicking here.

Author Visit - Thursday, September 19th for Grades K-3

Bob Shea and Zachariah OHora - author and illustrator extraodinaire - will visit Titus students on Thursday, September 19th. Your K-3rd grader will be exploring their books in the library during the coming weeks. If he or she would like a book signed by the author and illustrator, please complete the order form being sent home and return it to Titus by Monday, September 16th. The books are being provided by The Doylestown Bookshop at a discount to Titus students.

School has started and so has our journey toward the Race for Education! The fundraiser benefits every student and staff member at Titus by providing funds for field trips, for free books at the fall and spring book fair, and by sponsoring the family fun events held at Titus such as the Harvest Breakfast and Bingo Night.

Your family's Race packets came home this week. Please return the completed yellow sponsor sheet and mailing labels to your child's teacher by Friday, September 13th. Every child at Titus will be entered to win various prizes as we begin earning donations towards are final goal of $35,000.

As we prepare for Race Day on November 1st, Home and School needs your help! Please volunteer to help with copying labels for Race by viewing our sign-up. Thank you!
