Principal's Corner 🍎
Greetings Aspire Families,
Thank you for another great semester at Aspire. Students will be on holiday break until January 3, 2023. We wish you a restful holiday season. The holiday break gives us an opportunity to pause our busy lives and reflect on our proud accomplishments. Our Aspire students have demonstrated how resilient they are and showcase how they are on FIRE each and everyday. On behalf of the entire Aspire team, we want to say “thank you” to the entire school community for all of the support that you provide to our students, our families, and our staff.
