A Message from the Principal

Greetings Parents and Students:

It was quite a week, the highlights to include the following:

  1. WASC Accreditation Report.  The WASC visiting team arrived last Sunday and left Wednesday afternoon.  Before they left, they reported to staff after school Wednesday, and the report was  both complimentary of the school and very positive.   We are expecting the final edited report today or tomorrow, and I will forward copies to all stakeholders at that time.  The affirmation of our progress and accomplishments was well received by the staff, and they should  be proud.  I heard time and time again just how impressed they were with the instruction and learning going on in all  our classrooms.
  2. Engineering Open House.  If you didn’t see it, I’ve attached the link to the Enterprise Record report last Friday.  Thanks to Roger Aylworth for his report.   We had lots of visitors to the event.  Folks engaged the students in rich conversation about their projects which ranged from the design of a puzzle cube using Inventor software, to the design of a robotic arm to the development of a yeast powered vehicle. 
  3. Inspire’s 4th Annual Gala, “Balance.”  We had two shows Saturday attended by approximately 650 people.  The show was mixture of music, dance, theater, and poetry readings and included performances from students in the following Inspire classes: Orchestra, Choir, Funk Band, Pop Band, Theater, Musical Theater, and Spanish.  The level of performance was high throughout the Gala.  140 students performed and another 10-15 worked back stage representing over 35% of our entire student body.
