Principal’s Message

Welcome Back Aspire Tate Academy Families!

On behalf of the staff at Aspire Tate Academy, I am happy to welcome you to the 2023 – 2024 school year.  We are proud of our dedicated, experienced staff and enthusiastic scholars and are excited to collaborate with you this school year.

As the demands and the urgency of teaching our students increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure that our children reach their potential.  At Aspire Tate Academy, we believe in, and understand, the need for partnership with the community so that we can meet the full needs of the child.  We know that, when we work together, our scholars are better able to become their best selves.  We want to continue to work to create the environments for our scholars to have the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically and emotionally successful people.

With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Aspire Tate Academy.  While at Tate, you are able to volunteer to assist our parent coordinator, work directly with teachers through our Parent Volunteer Programs, become a member of our School Site Council (SSC) or English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) and participate in parent workshops or special events.  You are encouraged to be involved.  We know that research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.

It is our desire to keep you informed of all that takes place at school.  You will receive a weekly newsletter and you can always find out what is going on by access to ParentSquare, our Instagram or Facebook pages (follow at @aspiretateacademy).  If you have any questions or concerns that arise, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call.  I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.
