2015-2016 Welcome Letter

Dear schools,


Welcome to Inspirations 2015-2016.  Our theme this year is “The Hero in Me.”  We can’t wait to see how our children recognize this in themselves and express it!


We are very excited to get started on the Inspirations Arts Program this year!  We’ve been working hard to make sure this year’s program is better than it’s ever been.  We’ve expanded our board and we’ve converted to a website!  Check it out here:  http://charterinspirations.org/ (Be sure to check the “blog” section – this is where we will post updates.)  On our website you will find everything you need to understand and run the program.  If you have questions, please check out the FAQ section first.  You can always find us on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Inspirations/227458810638158?fref=ts ) if you have other questions.  Please feel free to share our page with your families.


The participation fee is still $100 – with money due by Sept 30th.  You can run the program at your school anytime – as long as it is completed by January 29th.  Region awards nights will be March 11th and State will be April 22nd.  We’ve attached an invoice – please send money to CS Lewis Academy, 364 UT-198, Santaquin, UT 84655


Just like last year, we will be using a Google Form for registration.  Please use the following link to sign your school up. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1I3eKOdViGE2W_YiRNk9rZqymzTIN4mQa_pJEJ3ha3Z0/viewform


Feel free to either reply to this email with questions – or ask them on our facebook page found here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Inspirations/227458810638158?fref=ts  Please share our page with your families!  Dates and info will be shared there and they can get their questions answered.



Thanks you all so much!

State Awards Night 2014-2015

Please share the following information with your families.
Sate Inspirations Awards Night

940 West 800 South
Orem, UT 84058
Friday, March 27th
6:30 pm in the Activity Center
(located at the north end of the parking lot.  Parents can park in either the UVU education parking lot which is what we share with them or just east of the school there are two LDS chapels where our seminary students attend and the parking lot there is very large.  It is a 3 – 5 minute walk from the church parking lot to the school.) 
While everyone is invited to attend… for the first time, we do intend to let schools know which families may want to make an extra effort to actually be there.

2014 – 2015 Intro

We are very excited to get started on the Inspirations Arts Program this year.  This year’s theme is “What A Wonderful World.”  We really want the students to focus on all of the good that is around us.

We have implemented a new system for schools to sign up to participate in Inspirations this year.  Please use the following link to sign your school up.  Once you have signed up online I will send your school contact all of the paperwork for running the program at your school.  This will help us be much more efficient.
If you haven’t ever participated in Inspirations I would encourage you to try it out.  I would be happy to answer any questions.  Please email me so we can chat.

( Please note that the participation fee is still $100 per school.  That money goes towards medals and trophies at the Region and State levels of the program, as well as helping run those awards nights.)
