Thank you everyone for taking the time to celebrate our teachers & staff!

Summer Reading Program . . .

Interested in summer reading opportunities?

Join Miss Brennan and Miss Wallace for an informational meeting about some new and exciting ways to engage your child in summer reading in our own Titus library! Bring your child on Thursday, May 16th to learn more about this wonderful and unique opportunity. Be sure to check out this link for a sneak peek of what’s to come this summer. Hope to see you there.

A Friendly Reminder . . .

Please be aware that the school day begins at 8:35 in the classroom. It is my recommendation that children are dropped off no later than 8:30 in order to get to their classrooms for the start of the school day at 8:35. If a student arrives in their classroom beyond 8:35 they are considered tardy. The adults supervising the car-rider drop-off line will be on duty until 8:32. Students dropped off after 8:32 will more than likely not be able to make it to their classrooms on time for the start of the school day at 8:35.

Also, for safety reasons, students arriving to school prior to 8:15, need to be supervised by their parent/caregiver. We ask that they wait with their family member in a parking space until 8:15.

Save the Date . . .

Please join Central Bucks School District in supporting the 9/11 Heroes Run. Registration is now open for the September 15th event. Doylestown borough will once again host a 5k and 1 mile fun walk/run to raise support and awareness for all of the heroes of September 11th.


Don't Forget . . .

All student library books will be due on May 28th. To participate in Field Day, all library books must be returned or paid for by Field Day - June 7th. If someone finds a book after payment is made, the library will refund the money.
