Gingerbread Extravaganza 2019!

We will be having a gingerbread house contest at the Winter Wonderfest hosted by the San Diego community Coordinators. All TK-12 students are invited to participate.

This is a great opportunity to show off your child's creativity and get into the holiday spirit! It is optional, of course. Your child's gingerbread house must be put together, decorated, and completed at home. Sign Up for Gingerbread Extravaganza by December 6th.

Bring your child's finished gingerbread house to the Winter Wonderland Festival to be entered into the contest. All students will be invited to vote on their favorite Gingerbread house and the winners will be announced at 1:30 on the day of the Winterfest. We ask that you please put your child's name on the bottom of your gingerbread house, so they can stay anonymous for voting. The votes will be made by other Inspire families!

The contest will be split into three groups for fairness. TK to 2nd grade, 3rd to 6th grade, and 7th to 12th grade.

We look forward to seeing everyone's amazing houses! If you have any questions about the contest, please contact Robin Hinderliter at

Toy Drive

We will be hosting a toy drive! We are collecting new, unwrapped toys for Ronald McDonald House Charities. Please consider contributing a toy this holiday season!
