Safe and Civil School

Safe and Civil is a program which is used in many schools to promote respect, responsiblity and civility.  A major focus of this program will be to reduce incidences of bullying.  Look for more to come as our team begins to implement this new program at Tincher.

These meetings help the school district to strategize programs to support Pacific Islander students.  View the attached flier for details and a schedule of meetings through September.


State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.



On Friday, September 15, 2017, Tincher Preparatory K-8 School had an exciting  spirit assembly.  The PTA organized a huge flash mob of parents and school staff dancing their hearts out to get students excited for the big FITFEST event. The adults worked hard and moved to the sounds of Uptown Funk.   Last year, Tincher Preparatory School raised $20,000 during the all-morning FITFEST event where kids could get healthy by moving and trying out different sports. This year’s goal is to raise even more money for school programs. This year’s event includes soccer, water polo drills, capoeira, and many more.  October 18th is the day to be alive for the big FITFEST event!

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.
