Well Deserved . . .

On Wednesday, June 5th, the Central Bucks School District held its annual retirement & recognition ceremony. During the ceremony one of our own received some well-deserved recognition. Miss Kim Anderson, was recognized for her time and efforts put into this year's Science Fun Day. During the event, each student and over 150 parent volunteers had the opportunity to play scientist for an entire day! There were smiles and learning around every corner of Titus during Science Fun Day. Miss Anderson's dedication to science, Titus and our students made for a very productive and memorable learning experience for so many.

Congratualtions, Kim!

Looking Good . . .

Titus would like to express a very BIG thank you to the families, staff, local businesses and even some recent alumni for all of the efforts on a very HOT morning. Last Saturday, June 1st, a small army of Titus friends turned out to "spruce" up the front garden beds and one of our courtyards. Weeds were pulled, rocks were moved, ten yards of mulch spread, and a lot of water was consumed! It was a great testament to the community and their support of our school. I hope you enjoy the fruits of their labor as much as we do. It was truly a labor of love!

Special thanks goes to:

  • The Dallmer Family, The Cooper Family, The Mills Family, The Robbins Family, The Johnson/Baker Family, Mrs. Donofrio

Titus alumni/friends:

  • Kaitlyn Barnhart, Emily Cooper, Lauren Crim, Laura Robinson, Kendall Zerman


  • The Harvey Family , Warrington Fire Company, Village Bagel, Victory Gardens

News from the Kitchen . . .

Letters have recently been sent home to families carrying balances on their lunch accounts. To ensure the end of the year runs smoothly, we ask that ALL families handle any outstanding balances associated with your lunch accounts. The cafeteria staff can deny a request to charge further meals once a balance is incurred.

Thank you for you attention to this matter.
