Dear Aspire Tate Academy Families,
Welcome back to Aspire Tate Academy! Fall will be here before we know it, and we are busy making preparations for the first day of school on August 17, 2020. To help us get a head start on student files, we have put together this Registration Packet. The Registration Packet includes required forms for the 2020-2021 school year. We will require both Emergency Cards (yellow and blue) be completed today at our orientation. The remaining forms include an Identification Information form; a Student Needs Survey; a Behavior Guidelines and Records Information.
You will receive information from your child’s teacher during the first week of school. In the meantime, parents can help by making sure that their children are current with any necessary immunizations. Please consult your child’s pediatrician if you have questions about particular immunizations.
Please complete and return all enclosed forms before August 10, 2020, so that we can ensure a smooth transition for your child/children on the first day of school. Completed Registration Packets should be mailed or delivered to the office attention Janesy Membreno.
The address is:
Aspire Tate Academy
123 West 59th Street
Los Angeles, CA 90003
Just a reminder, school begins on August 17, 2020.
We believe it is essential to understand our students’ learning styles and provide them with a rigorous education. As a member of the Tate family, every student is a valued part of our community. We work together to maintain a close-knit school community based on respect, love and acceptance of all (Ubuntu and In Lak’ech). This is even more important given our current educational environment. Our families are truly our partners and we look forward to working alongside you this school year. We are also focused on working to create lifelong learners and our Aspire motto is “College for Certain”!
The Tate staff and I will work hard to continue to build partnership with you each of you, as you are our students’ first teachers. Together we will provide the best available resources to educate your child and prepare them for college.
It is our desire to keep you informed of all that takes place at school. You can always find out what is going on by accessing our Facebook, Instagram, and, YouTube, Twitter pages. 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.
