Community Connections

Dear Titus Elementary School Families,


Please join me in the Titus library on December 2 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.


Stay Well,


John J. Kopicki, Ed.D.

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration began on November 19! Families of new students who are eligible to enroll in kindergarten in the 2020-2021 school year are invited to begin the registration process. Get the details on eligibility, what documents to gather, and how to navigate the online registration process at www.cbsd.org/registration. We look forward to welcoming the class of 2032!

Save the Date - 6th Grade Promotion

Please mark your calendars for this year's 6th Grade Promotion. Our 6th Grade Promotion will take place on Wednesday, June 10th at Central Bucks High School South. More detailed information will be sent to all 6th grade parents in the spring.

Request from the Nurse

The Health Office is in need of your help! Please send in any gently used size medium or large sweat pants/Titus gear.


Thank you in advance.

Dress for the Weather

Don't forget, as we enter the colder weather, to please dress appropriately for recess outside. Hats, gloves, coats, etc. are all important as we will be outdoors as long as the weather allows.

Walker and Bike Dismissal Reminder

Parents of our walkers and bike riders who leave through our dining room are reminded that they should not be driving and parking by the cafeteria doors. We have many staff members who park in this area for After Care and it may cause a dangerous situation for our walkers and bike riders who are leaving at the end of the day.


We appreciate your help in keeping our Titus children safe. If you need to pick up your child(ren) as a car rider, please use the car line in the back of the building and send communication to your child's teacher. Please do not pick up your child as a car rider by the cafeteria doors.

Dismissal Reminders

If it is necessary to change your normal pick-up routine at the end of the day, i.e., a different adult, bus rather than car, car rather than bus, a change in child care arrangements, etc., a written note must be presented to the classroom teacher, who will share the information with the office.


Any phone calls regarding a change in end-of-day plans must be directed to the office before 2:45 PM through phone (267-893-4500, dial zero for the office) or via e-mail (mdaily@cbsd.org and rglasgow@cbsd.org) and not directly to the classroom teacher, as we cannot guarantee the teachers will be able to check their messages during the instructional day. It is extremely important that all changes in dismissal are provided to the main office prior to 2:45 PM in order to prepare all of our children for dismissal. Only emergency changes should be called into the office after 2:45 PM.

First Trimester Conferences

First Trimester Conference Sign-Ups were opened for all parents on Wednesday, November 13th. Please sign-up for your child(ren)'s conference by visiting this link for a time slot. The sign- ups are completed through Sign Up Genius. If you have any difficulty filling in the spots that are listed, please contact your child(ren)'s teacher to make other arrangements.


Conference Dates: December 12th and 13th

Lost and Found

Are you missing your hats, gloves, jackets, etc.?


Our lost and found is overflowing with items. Please have your child check our lost and found for any missing items throughout the school day. Our lost and found items will be on display during our conferences in December. Any items still remaining by Friday, December 20th will be donated.


Thank you for your support.

Rules

Students in grades three through six were invited to read the book Rules at home with their families over the last month. To culminate this activity, fourth, fifth and sixth graders were encouraged to add their own personal rules to the playground blacktop. Some of their ideas were quite inspiring!

Our History Club has been busy, busy! Our students have been learning about bee keeping, candle making during colonial times and now, German paper cutting called Schereenschnitte, and WWII uniforms.


Thank you Mrs. SCHORPP for bringing this wonderful club to Titus!
