Principal’s Message

Dear Falcon Families,

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!  We would like to extend a big thank you to all the families that have chosen to send their children to our school year after year, and a big welcome to our new families.  Aspire Firestone is committed to successfully developing intellectually curious, self-confident and self-reliant young people for the betterment of a future global society.  We are committed to providing a rigorous Common Core aligned academic program, Art, Music, Library, and Science classes, collaboration with family, staff, and community, in a child-centered, technology-enriched, learning environment.  We will also continue to implement Restorative Practices, and teach our scholars that conflict is addressed through dialogue.

We are excited for what the new year holds, and we look forward to working with you as partners in the education of our scholars.

Dustin Katch
Principal, Aspire Firestone Academy
