Titan Treehouse

Titan Treehouse…

It IS as fun as it sounds! Titan Treehouse is a treat earned by students that model appropriate behavior at school. Respectful, Responsible and Safe behavior earns the chance to be entered into the raffle and each week teachers randomly select a child’s name from a raffle.

Reasons to Get Involved:

*Being present at school provides a chance for you to get to know CES faculty and staff. While at a Titan Treehouse activity you’ll spend time with the students who are at school with your child.  Build familiarity with the people and places that make up your child’s day.

*The calendar is flexible. This is a year-round experience so there are open dates to fit in a time that works for you.

*If you like school parties, you will be a perfect fit for Titan Treehouse. It’s as much fun as a classroom party but much easier! Very little to coordinate and it’s a quick obligation.

*It’s influential and meaningful for the students. Kids love to be highlighted and time with a special guest is a real treat. You will be generously paid in smiles for your time!

How it Works:

*Parents plan and run 15-minute just-for-fun activities.

*Titan Treehouse will be generally be on Thursday afternoons at 1:50.

*Sessions alternate grade levels every other week; k-2 and 3-4.  This will keep the groups smaller each week:  no more than 30 kids for K-2, and 20 kids for 3-4.

What to Expect:

*Anyone with a background check on file can help. All students are involved in PBIS. This is a school-community reward and we want all students and families to understand that Titan Treehouse is a possibility for them.

*The kids love these activities! It’s a treat for them, but also a great time for the parents.

*You can choose the activity! (But feel free to work with the PBIS team for suggestions, if you need them.) Go for inexpensive & easy activities (sidewalk chalk, basketball shoot-out, freeze dance, window decorating…) based on your interests. Some of the most enriching experiences emerge from parents sharing what they love with our kids.  We do ask that you gather needed supplies, however, if you need assistance with materials please let us know.

*On your Titan Treehouse day, pop into the office and sign in. Depending on activity needs and space availability, you’ll be directed to where you need to go. Everyone at school supports PBIS so you’ll be a welcome guest.

Ask your student(s):
Have you ever been to the Titan Treehouse?
What are some activities you like to do at the Titan Treehouse or would like to do?
