Parent Education: English/Language Arts and the Common Core Workshops
On Thursday, November 20th, parents and caregivers participated in a workshop designed to share ways of supporting students in English Language Arts activities based on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Participants engaged in a hands-on activity allowing them to experience collaborative conversations- a key ingredient to mastering the Listening and Speaking strand of the CCSS. This workshop is part of a three-part series. The next workshops for English Language Arts will be on December 16th and January 28th from 6pm to 7pm.

Safe and Civil
There are several new and exciting changes happening at Tincher. We were invited to participate in the district’s Safe And Civil School program. This 3-year program focuses on developing policies and procedures to ensure a safe and orderly campus. As part of the changes we are implementing, the new Tincher Token program is being rolled out. The new tokens feature our Guidelines For Success.
The Guidelines For Success (shown right) are included as part of our daily announcements following the Pledge of Allegiance. These guidelines are an important part of the school culture.
The improvements also include the “Start on Time” program for Middle School which was introduced last week. Start on Time is designed to increase instructional time and minimize interruptions. A ‘sweep’ team will issue late slips to MS students who are not in class by the end of the 4-minute passing period. Automatic phone calls will be made for each period they are tardy. On-line attendance is being piloted by Tincher for Middle School, so please assist us by sending notes for any absence. Be sure to include student’s name, the date and reason for the absence.
In addition to revising the school-wide referral program, we have introduced ‘blue slips’ for elementary students. Blue slips will be issued for playground issues/concerns. Thank you for your support.

Dear Tincher Families,
welcome to the start of another exciting year. We are pleased to announce our new Principal, Rosemary Sissons, who is bringing a wealth of experience to the school.
Please Note: Letters indicating your child's classroom placement for the 2014-2015 school year were mailed on Tuesday September 26th. For Middle School students it will indicate their advisory classroom. Students will receive their full schedule from the Advisory Teacher on the first day of school. Have a wonderful Labor Day holiday and we look forward to seeing you in September.
