Bringing Central Inspire Families Together

April 10, 2019

Hello Inspire Families,

The seasons are changing, and we have moved into the 4th quarter of this school year. Enrichment Adventures are wrapping up, and our CAASSP testing is in full swing.

I hope you will find information in this newsletter that will enrich your homeschool journey!

How to Return Enrichment Items

Spring Cleaning? Thinking about next year?

When you are ready to return the non-consumable educational items you ordered from the Enrichment System, they can be returned to the Lending Library or to your HST.

Please fill out one form per student, and list items individually.

You may keep items from year to year, as long as you remain enrolled in Inspire. Items returned will be placed in the Lending Library to be used by other families.

If the link to download this form does not work, I have also attached it to the email. You can also request this form from your HST.

California Homeschool Parent Association

Something new and exciting!

Parents will have the opportunity to join our new Inspire parent non-profit group. This will be a separate non-profit organization for the parents, organized and lead by parents. Even though it is exclusive to Inspire parents, it will be called California Homeschool Parent Association (CHPA). It will be a statewide PTO/Booster organization that has local divisions in general by county. All county parent leaders will be chosen by the parents.

Central Valley Homeschool Convention -- Fresno

Have you registered for the Central Valley Homeschool Convention in Fresno this summer? You can use your funds to attend and Inspire Enrichment Staff will be on hand to allow you to purchase materials with your funds at the conference.

The list of vendors attending just keeps growing, and the speakers who are coming should be so encouraging to you on your homeschool journey.
