Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week takes place every year in October. As a district, we will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week during the week of October 25, 2021. Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug lessons will be instructed to all students in grades K-6 by the classroom teacher during this week. An e-blast has been sent to parents and guardians on October 1, 2021.

Halloween Parade - October 29th

Titus's Annual Halloween Parade will take place on Friday, October 29th at 9:30am. In the event of rain, the parade will take place inside and unfortunately we do not have enough room in the building to accommodate all our visitors. Students may wear their costumes to school. Please make sure that all costumes are appropriate for school along with accessories.


Classroom parties will take place immediately following the parade and will conclude between 10:45 and 11am in order to prepare for kindergarten dismissal. Classroom coordinators and classroom teachers will reach out with more specific information.


Parent volunteers must check in with the main office when they arrive and must have the proper clearances. Our classroom teachers will communicate specific party information to these helpers. Thank you in advance for your time on this day.


AM Kindergarten Parade on 10/28 - 8:55am (classroom teacher will communicate information)

PM Kindergarten and Grades 1-6 Parade - 9:30am followed by their classroom activities

Pumpkin Decorating Contest

It’s October and that means pumpkins are everywhere! Let’s take this fun, festive gourd and bring it into the library to show our love of books! Just pick a book, purchase a small-sized pumpkin (that you can easily carry by yourself), and decorate it like your favorite book character. You can decorate it, paint it, glue things to it, and add a lot of fun details. Do not carve the pumpkin. The pumpkins will be on display in the library for two weeks, and we don’t want them to rot or attract pests.


See information letter below for examples and the form to turn in with your pumpkin.

Safety and Security Drill, 10/27

On Wednesday, October 27th, we will be holding our safety and security drill (intruder lock down). Our teachers will instruct our students for their developmentally appropriate age levels. for more information on School Safety, please visit the district website at Information / School Safety (cbsd.org).


Prior to the drill, our Titus teachers will discuss the protocol with their students so that they are prepared. I will send communication to all parents on Tuesday, October 26th as a reminder of the upcoming drill and communication will also be sent at the conclusion of the drill on Wednesday. Please reach out to your teacher(s) with any questions that you may have.


We greatly appreciate your support and cooperation.

Technology and Innovation Update

Currently, the Technology and Innovation Department blocks Microsoft Office 365 logins to Outlook, OneDrive, ClassLink, and Canvas from foreign countries. This aids in protecting our CBSD user accounts and organization from malicious computer attacks from outside of the United States.


Students who travel cannot assume their devices will work once they leave the United States. For student out-of-country access requests, please know that access to technology for vacations will not be approved at this time.

Veterans Day 2021

We are thrilled to be able to extend an invitation once again to the family members of any current student who serve or served in the United States military to join us on Thursday, November 11th. We simply want to honor the veterans in our families as we gather for what has become a treasured annual event.


We want everyone to feel comfortable and be safe, so this year we are hosting 3 assemblies to allow for adequate spacing.


9:00 AM – Grade 1, Grade 2, and AM Kindergarten

10:00 AM – Grade 3 and Grade 4

2:15 PM – Grade 5, Grade 6, and PM Kindergarten


We understand that siblings might be attending different assemblies. We ask that veterans pick one assembly to attend, and we will arrange for the other siblings to join us at the end for a picture with their vet. Please understand that we are doing multiple assemblies to keep everyone comfortable and healthy!


FOR SECURITY REASONS, YOU MUST RSVP. WE NEED TO KNOW WHO WILL BE COMING INTO OUR BUILDING. A RSVP IS REQUIRED FOR PARTICIPATION.


Please use this link to RSVP for this event by November 5th. https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=j0gLqp78hUGl4zhCIN8jyhF-qMX2o-lLhr9SVYTBh8xUNFoxOVpOWkQ0MlE5WDZKSjNXSVdVTUM4SS4u

Sparks

Welcome back to Sparks. You will be receiving these articles on a regular basis through your building’s newsletter with the goal of career education for all Central Bucks students.


Last spring, the students in grades 3-6 were introduced to Smart Futures. Smart Futures is an online career development platform which focuses on grade-specific activities for students and manages the outcomes of the activities in a portfolio which meets the required PA Career Readiness Standards. Classroom teachers will be working with students in Smart Futures. Last year students in grades 3-6 completed a limited number of activities but this year we will be asking all elementary students to complete the activities for their grade. Any student who chooses, can do the activities in the previous grade band to have a complete portfolio for career readiness. For the most part, students can do the earlier activities independently so it might be an opportunity for you to see Smart Futures at home with your daughter or son. We are asking students not to go beyond the activities assigned to their grade.


SF allows students to discover what they like to do, learn about careers they might want to investigate and even how to develop a budget. To learn more about SF, watch this short video and you can always ask your child to log onto SF to see what they are learning.

HOME & SCHOOL ASSOCIATION INFORMATION

Box Tops

Did you know that you can earn money for Titus just by buying groceries?


That’s right! You can help support the Titus Home and School Association by utilizing the Box Tops for Education program in any (or all) of the following ways!


1) Download the Box Tops for Education App and scan your receipt every time you shop in store.

2) Create an account at www.boxtops4education.com and forward your digital receipts (from online grocery shopping) to receipts@boxtops4education.com for credit.

3) Collect the older “clip” version of Box Tops (the ones you cut out that have an expiration date) and send them to school in a baggie labeled with your child’s teacher’s name. There is a collection box in the main office.

4) Don’t want to bother with the app or email? Send in your grocery receipts to school and we’ll take care of the scanning. Label the receipt with your child’s teacher’s name and have your child place it in the Box Tops collection bin in the main office. (All receipts must be received within 7 days of purchase to allow time for scanning before they expire.)


Every little bit helps! If you have any questions about the Box Tops program or need help with the app, contact Stephanie Wolff at srwolff2@verizon.net.
