Titan Tidbits - Parents

Week 30: March 23-27, 2020

General Announcements:

Titan Families,

Well, it's been an interesting couple of weeks and we've all survived Week 1!!! I want to encourage you to take this time to connect with your children. Please note that we've seen the work that your students are doing and we're impressed. Just like the implementation of eLearning, you've dived into uncharted waters with us this week and we are thankful for your continued support during this time. We ask that if you have to prioritize, you focus on reading, writing, and math. We ask that if you start getting stressed or if your kids do, let your child's teacher know. This should not cause additional stress to an already uncertain time. Put a puzzle together, build a fort, cook, watch a movie together, or build lego creations! Have fun with your kids! Yes do the work but have fun spending quality time together. We know that kids brains do not effectively learn if they feel stress. Through this time of uncertainty, you can help your kid(s) navigate by focusing on reconnecting with them. It is certainly a time we will never forget.

Please stay safe and know we all miss you!

A Titan Parade!

On Sunday, March 22nd, your TCES teachers will be driving through as many neighborhoods as possible to wave hello! We will depart from TCES and arrive in our first neighborhood around 5pm! We hope to go Facebook Live along the way (pending network capabilities)!

We can't wait to see you! If we're not passing your house directly, find the street that's closest to you! We did the best we could to create a route that would allow us to see the majority of our 1,000+ students!

US Census:

The first census was conducted in 1790, and it continues every decade. A “complete count” is important for our state and for York County. Billions of federal dollars (over $675 Billion!) are allocated based on census data and will be allocated for the next 10 years. In 2010, nearly 1 million children under the age of 5 were not counted. This year’s census will be ground-breaking in several ways, but mainly for the additional ways that households can complete the census. This year, a household will be able to complete the census online or via telephone in addition to the traditional mail options. The online and phone options will hopefully make completion more convenient for all involved and result in a more accurate count. In mid-March, homes across the country will begin receiving invitations to complete the 2020 census. Once your invitation arrives, you should respond for your home either online, by phone, or by mail. Watch for more information as we approach Census Day on April 1, 2020!
