Technology-Enriched Curriculum Gives IA Students Advantage During Quarantine!
Skype meeting devotionals, digital textbooks, web- based group projects, and cloud-based homework submission are everyday activities at Inspiration Academy. Educational innovation, with a goal of real world preparation, have allowed IA staff and students to transition to virtual class models with great success. While many other educational outlets struggle with collapsing websites and unprepared students, IA doesn't miss a beat on their first day back to school, and even manages to hold Chapel services as usual via Facebook and Instagram Live!

Thank you to our staff and families for all of your hard work and flexibility during this time!

From the Desk of Parent's Pride

Greetings from home!
We hope that everyone had a restful spring break considering the circumstances. We are officially gearing up for our BIGGEST Pride event of the year, our Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week. It will be here before we know it and fingers crossed we will have the opportunity to thank our incredible teachers for all that they do in person. Taking place from May 4th -8th it's a team effort. Help is needed from everyone to make it a special week for our teachers and faculty that continue to make IA a very special place for our kids. With it only being a month away there is a lot to do. This is the ideal time to start to collect gift cards and other gift items for the teachers "goodie bags". For example we have done gift cards for gas, groceries, dining, coffee, etc. Other gift items include: small candles, toiletries, chocolates and candy. 

Also, the tradition has been to provide a delicious breakfast and lunch every day throughout the week. Please be on the lookout for the sign-up genius over the next couple of weeks which spells out what our exact needs will be and allows you to lock in your contribution.

W e understand now more than ever how our teachers have risen to the occasion even in the craziest of times to provide a bit of normalcy for our kids and this is our chance to thank them. 

NEW!! This month our meeting will be held VIRTUALLY via ZOOM. We will meet THIS FRIDAY, April 3rd at 8:15am from your very own home. Keep an eye out for a Remind or email with our meeting code. I can't wait to see all of your smiling faces!
Thank you for all of your ongoing support!
Many Blessings,
Sabrina Ullmann & Parents Pride
