Weekly Newsletter with Karmen & Rachel

Week of February 18th - 22nd

Don't you love our San Diego Inspire community?! Our students have so many amazing opportunities. Each week we try to bring you as much information about upcoming events in our community as we can. Please take the time to scroll through the newsletters to see what's going on.

This week we have our first Student Spotlight! We also have a very special vendor spotlight featuring a vendor geared to special needs students, an upcoming vendor casting call, and MUCH more! And field trips! Let's talk about field trips! We've had so many fabulous field trips this year and more are coming. Check out the details below on the San Diego Padres Vs. the LA Dodgers, a San Diego International Airport tour, and the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum in Campo ... just to name a few!

Get involved and connect with your Inspire community!


Cordano Russell

We have many Inspiring students in our school! This week we'd like to spotlight one of them and share about the amazing things he's up to. Cordano Russell is aspiring pro-skateboarder with his eyes on competing in the Olympics one day! He's been skating for 11 years now. You can read an article from the San Diego Union Tribune about him here. Cordano recently joined the Come Up Tour and has the opportunity to become 2018 Come Up Tour Champion!

Let's support one of our own and vote for him here!

Integrating social & functional skills into everyday life!

Social Fusion Center was founded by Kimberly Gloss, MA, BCBA in October, 2015 due to a need in the San Diego community for social skills groups and other skills training for children of all ages. Not only was this a large population not currently being served but for single parent households or those where both parents work, getting their children with special needs to all of their services throughout each week can be a real struggle. It's almost impossible to squeeze everything in after Social Fusion Center is here to help!
