Sparks Article - December

“Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”― Mark Twain


This quote may optimize the wish that many parents have for their children’s future. Some of you may be fortunate enough to feel that way about your own career. Finding that ideal job is the challenge and for our children it is often a matter of “trying things on” to see what fits. The link below shares interesting looks at how people feel about the work they do. Although many of the videos may be more appropriate for older students, some could be fun for the younger ones such as Kite Designer or Experimental Film and Stop Motion Animator.


Perhaps take a few minutes over the upcoming school break and watch some of these with your sons and daughters. Ask them what they think, and listen. You both may learn something about “a job you enjoy doing.”

Label, Label, Label

As the weather begins to get colder and more of our students are wearing jackets and other outside items, please make sure that all of your child's things are labeled. Our lost and found area in the cafeteria is growing with really nice sweatshirts, jackets, etc. By placing your child's name on all of their items, it will be much easier for us to return those items to the rightful owner.


Thank you in advance for your help!

Winter Parties

We will be holding our winter classroom parties on Wednesday, December 22nd. Classroom teachers and/or classroom coordinators will communicate classroom specific information. Any parent that will be volunteering in a classroom must have all clearances completed.


All volunteers are asked to please park in the back parking lot to ease congestion in our main lot. Parent volunteers must check in with the main office when they arrive and must have the proper clearances on file. Any parent who will be picking up their child in the car line on December 22nd is asked to not arrive prior to 3pm due to the ending of afternoon classroom parties and the congestion in our parking lot.


Thank you in advance for your time on this day.

Volunteers

To volunteer or chaperone, your clearances must be up-to-date.


If your clearances are current, upload them into the App Garden - Volunteer Tracker. If your clearances have expired, or you need to begin the clearance process, click on the Required Documents for the directions. For more information, consult the Human Resources Volunteer Required Paperwork webpage or reach out to Mrs. Fortunato in the main office.

Car Line PM Dismissal

We have many families this school year that are utilizing our car line. We know that the car line can wrap around the parking lot and out onto Barness Road; however, once we begin dismissal at 3:15pm, our car line dismissal is a well oiled machine and all students are out in approximately 10 minutes.


We are asking for your assistance by not arriving for carline prior to 3pm. Our back gate will not open until this time so that our students and teachers may continue to utilize the back lot in the afternoon. Due to the size of our parking lot when cars line up early, it makes it difficult for others to enter and exit the parking lot.


Thank you in advance for your help and cooperation!

Early Dismissal Reminders

If you are picking up your child early from school, please be prepared to show ID in the main office. This is for the safety of all of our Titus students.


In addition, if you are planning to pick your child up prior to the end of the school day, the last time we will be able to accommodate early dismissal from the main office will be at 3pm, in order for everyone to prepare for dismissal. Anyone wishing to pick up their child after 3pm, should utilize the car line for dismissal.


The main office thanks you for your cooperation.

School Store

“The School Store is now open!” Our Grand Re-opening took place on Thursday, December 2nd . Students will once again be able to purchase any supplies that start to go missing around the end of the first trimester. The store is located in the gym and is staffed by our Student Advisory Council (SAC) reps. This year the school store will be open each Thursday morning before announcements.


Happy Shopping!

HOME & SCHOOL ASSOCIATION INFORMATION

6th Grade Social Committee

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.
