Principal’s Message

Dear Remarkable Pacific Families,

I’m so happy to welcome you to another year at Aspire Pacific Academy! This school year we continue to set our eyes on GROWTH. Every year at Pacific we all have the privilege of seeing growth on all levels. As Pacific staff spend more time learning about the needs of students and families and we gain expertise in our coaching and teaching, we in turn learn to better support the growth of our students, demonstrating higher proficiency on grade-level standards on the SBAC. This last year we’ve witnessed so many of our parents show up weekly for workshops and activities in our Parent Center and these parents have grown in their ability to better support our children and our school.

Our school and our families share the same goal – to ensure a path of success for each of our children not only at Pacific, but beyond graduation. As we know that this goal comes with great challenge, we cannot achieve it without the help and support of our incredible families. As it’s my privilege to serve the community of Huntington Park, it is also my responsibility to ask for your support. As a school with our sights set on growth, we NEED the involvement of our families.

In order for students to make the minimal level of growth in reading, we need parents to ensure that our students are reading a book at their level for 60 minutes every day at home. We need parents to be in regular communication with administrators, teachers, and our office to better support our children. We need parents to participate in fundraisers to allow our kids the college field trip experiences that will make an impact on their futures. We want our families to participate in workshops and activities in our Parent Center and at the school so that we can have a stronger and more positive school community that is focused on our collective growth. Only with YOUR support and participation, can we become a community that makes a difference in the lives of all of our children.
