Congratulations to our Paws for PRIDE winners from last Friday’s drawing. Pictured are: Shawn Kirby, Rosie Marraccini, Chase Klear, Eugene Jeon, Abby Daniel, Emma Soltys, Sara Cooper.

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.

Parent Portal . . .

The Central Bucks School district uses Infinite Campus as its student information system. The Parent Portal allows parents/guardians to view schedules, attendance, immunizations, and assessment information. Parents can also update demographic information for their family. The Parent Portal is now open. For more information on the parent portal please visit the CBSD web site, or contact Mrs. Daily at 267.893.4500.

Effective with the 2014-2015 school year, elementary school parents will also be able to view, print, and/or save their child’s progress report directly from the Parent Portal.

Future Teachers of America?

Students in Mrs. London’s class had a birthday spirit day of “Dress Like a Teacher.”

Home & School Association:

Party Planning Spots Available . . .

On Friday, September 19th a school-wide messenger was sent out with information on how to log in & sign up for a class party. Although the response to the sign-up process has been quite a success, there are still some slots available. If you have not signed-up, but are interested, please visit the site to see what is available. Please just sign-up for only one party per classroom. Your teacher will then notify each of the volunteers a few weeks before the party with additional details.

Kid Stuff Books . . .

The KidStuff Book sale will run until Monday, September 29th. The cost of the book is $25, and Titus receives 50% of the profit from the sales. Even though Race for Education is our only fundraiser, we sell the books as a service to the Titus community. Many Titus parents have asked Home & School to sell the books because they benefit from the great coupons and they want the school to get the profits. If you have any questions please e-mail Kristen Margraff.

Home & School is asking for volunteers to come to school and help to fold, seal and stamp mailers to get them ready for mailing.
