Tincher Preparatory School Team Wins Annual RoboBowl

Tincher Team Wins Annual RoboBowl

 

Teams from Tincher Preparatory School won first and second place in the recent RoboBowl at McBride High School, where students from local middle schools learned about science, technology, engineering and math while showing off their robotics projects.

 

A team from Hughes Middle School won third place, and a team from Hamilton Middle School took fourth. At the RoboBowl, each school’s robotics club participates in the competition, which gives students a chance to test their robot designs before attending official VEX Robotics events in the fall. Since the  RoboBowl’s inception the event has been a partnership with Leadership Long Beach with the aim of advancing STEM education throughout the school district.

 

Students on the winning Tincher teams were Olivia Hibson, Lucy Boucher, Anahi Bedoy, Kayla Maguire, Emma Halal and Ashley Phaingdy. The robotics coordinator at Tincher is teacher Deborah Drab.

 

Lindsey Academy won the Engineering Notebook Award, while Keller Middle School earned the event’s Spirit Award.

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.
