The mission of the Tincher PTA is to enhance the lives and education of our students. This will be accomplished by supporting our students, teachers, and families through advocacy, leadership and communication.

A Message from the pta president 

Greetings Tincher Families,

Welcome “back” Tincher families to school year 2020-2021. I hope that you have all been healthy and well. I have missed seeing our Tincher Tigers and Families on campus. This year our PTA Board in partnership with our members is dedicated to supporting our students, families and teachers throughout this school year.

Our board has met several times throughout the summer to brainstorm ideas of ways to support enrichment through distanced learning and also when we return back to campus. We are committed to our Tincher community and know that we will get through this together with a renewed sense of strength and community.

There are many ways you can help us to build these efforts together. We will be asking for volunteers to help chair virtual events for our Tigers while we are learning from home. There will also be fundraisers you can support so we can continue to provide enrichment for students. Some of the programs that need to be funded are virtual Meet the Masters, Software support for Teachers, Reflections, Music program and so much more!

An additional way to support the PTA is to become a Tincher PTA Member. The PTA both locally and nationally are huge advocates for (P)arents, (T)eachers and most importantly our Students. There is power in numbers and joining the PTA will make our Tincher community a powerhouse. This year we will be using Totem for membership. Follow the  link below or scan the QR code to join today. All your family members can join and anyone who is a PTA member gets a vote at our membership meetings!

As always, we thank you for your continued support and we are Tincher Strong, no matter the distance!

In partnership,

Jenn Castro – Tincher PTA President 2020-2021
