Inspirations is a presentation by every eighth grade student of a topic or person that inspires the student and creates passion in his or her life. Inspirations is a chance to come together as a community to celebrate the lives of the eighth graders, support the commitment to character education, and to interact with the Core Values that we teach. Inspirations is a special experience for eighth graders as they move toward a more developed sense of identity. It allows for creativity, reflection on what is important to the individual, a structured public-speaking exercise, and an opportunity to showcase technology integration skills. Family members and the subject of the Inspiration often attend. The supportive atmosphere created by the audience is uplifting and another example of how a sense of community is built in the Middle School.
