Volunteers Needed . . .

As you may recall, last year we piloted a "volunteer opportunity" database for all of the third-grade families. With the help of Mrs. Tasey, we are now fortunate enough to offer similar volunteer opportunities across all of the grade levels. We will be using VolunteerSpot as the platform for the database. You simply have to visit the links below, enter your e-mail address, and sign up. Simple!

There are a variety of opportunities across the grade-levels - days, times, and tasks all vary. All opportunities begin the week of November 18th. Hopefully, you can find something that fits your schedule!!!

Operation Santa . . .

For many of our service men & women, this Thanksgiving and Christmas will be their first holiday away from home, family and friends. Unfortunately, some of these young men and women will not receive any mail or packages. This year we hope to send a bit of the holidays to those in the armed forces. Please help us by donating the following items between October 29th - November 12th. Boxes will be in the rotunda for you to drop off your donations . . . Thank you!

  • K- 3rd grade: Hot Chocolate, Snack Bars & Fruit Snacks
  • 4th - 6th grades: Playing Cards, Travel-size amenities, Frisbees, Footballs, Sporting goods, etc..

Red, White & Blue Day . . .

In honor of Veterans Day on Monday, we invite everyone to show their patriotic spirit and wear red, white, and/or blue on Monday, November 11th.

New at Titus . . .

Titus' library will be offering students, families and staff of Titus an opportunity to dedicate a book to the Titus library. Why dedicate a book to the Titus Library?

  • To celebrate a birthday
  • To honor a family member or friend

  • To say “thank you” to a teacher

  • To remember someone special

For your donation of $20, we will order a book for you, place a book plate in the book with your message on it, notify the person in whose honor it was given, and allow your child to be the first to check it out. The dedication form can be found on the Titus web site, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact Mrs. Moore, Titus librarian.

Titus Food Drive . . .
