This has been a year of continuing growth for Inspire - from June 2016 to June 2017 our enrollment doubled! We added more staff, opened new classrooms, and increased the size of our board. We're now looking for even more great teachers, so that we can continue to provide high quality care and education for even more families.
Throughout this year, Inspire's Board of Directors has been hard at work on several foundational aspects of our school. As we move into 2018, you will continue to see the positive effects of their behind-the-scenes work. The board has even created a way for you to connect with them directly - if you are interested in this option, please ask at the front desk of either school.
One exciting accomplishment that you might have missed: we have a new mission statement!
To provide a nurturing, inclusive community where teachers and families come to grow!
We are looking forward to the different ways that we can put this into practice over the coming year - for our staff, our students, and our families. Here are a few things we are working on:
Partnering with Central Oregon TRACES to help build resilience in our community and better serve children and families that are dealing with trauma - this partnership could lead to our schools working with OSU Cascades to track the development of children as our teachers implement trauma-informed practices in the classroom
Helping our staff members continue to increase their qualifications - by gaining more education, moving into leadership positions, and becoming trainers in the wider community
Providing opportunities for families, staff and community members to grow together through events, classes and informal gatherings
If you are interested in participating in or learning more about any of these things, please contact us! Visit us, call us or use this contact form to get in touch with us. We look forward to hearing from you!
