Congratulations to last week's Paws for PRIDE winners: Ian Smith, Mark Etgen, Sean Kim, Shrinithaa Elangovan, Ethan Prudenti, Anita Kholodov, Ella Magrann, and Keira Endy.

These students were chosen at random to be recognized and celebrated for demonstrating one of our five character traits - Pride, Respect, Individual Responsibility, Determination & Empathy. Thank you to all of the Titus families for your support of our Paws for PRIDE program.

So, What Do You Think?

In the past few years, communication across the district has greatly evolved. Our district and school websites have been upgraded with the intent to make them more mobile-friendly, our school newsletter format has been standardized, and we have integrated Facebook and Twitter for the sharing of information. Given all of these changes, we wanted to poll our families on the effectiveness of our information outreach.

Please click here to a take brief survey that will help us gather your feedback for the district and for Titus. If you have children in multiple buildings, please feel free to complete multiple surveys or utilize the final question to differentiate your responses. If you have any questions, please contact Community Relations.

2016-2017 Kindergarten Registration

The 2016-17 Kindergarten Registration began on October 26th. For Kindergarten registration information and paperwork, please check out the CBSD website.

The Fuzzy Puppy Foundation . . .

I am Iona McMenemy, and I am in fourth grade. My dog Ursa, was sick over the summer. We took her to Penn Veterinary Hospital, and I remember they used old blankets for the animals in the hospital. So I decided to start a fundraiser to donate things like blankets and comforters to PennVeterinary Hospital.

I told my 6 friends, and we all came up with a name: The Fuzzy Puppy Foundation (FPF). We also came up with a slogan: It’s A Special Paws. We are collecting blankets, towels, sheets, and comforters to donate to the dogs. Our collection dates are December 2nd to January 15th. Look for the donation bin in the lobby.

Plea for Help . . .

I have loved being a Titus parent for the past 8 years. It is such a wonderful community. A community that thrives off its volunteerism. This is my 6th year as chairperson for both the Secret Shop and the Yearbook.

I have enjoyed being a part of both of these groups- seeing smiles on the students faces as they shop for their families at the Secret Shop and the excitement when the yearbooks come out in the Spring. This is my last year at Titus, and as I wind down my time here, I want to be sure that these 2 things continue on, even better in the coming years! There are 2 great parents ready to take on the challenge for the 2016-2017 school year- Heather Monser (Secret Shop) and Laura Zakrzewski (Yearbook), but they cannot and should not have to do it alone! I would love to share what being a part of these 2 groups entail.

Both committees are in full swing and it’s a great time to join the teams. If you are interested in being a Co-Chair for either Secret Shop or Yearbook, please contact me- Kerry Veith. Let’s be sure the Secret Shop and Yearbook continue on for years to come!!
