First United Methodist Church of Crown Point, in coordination with Crown Point School Corporation, has launched Project Inspire to celebrate the 1040 employees of the Crown Point Schools and to raise money to help students with financial need to participate in extracurricular activities. Some of our students can’t join these activities and clubs due to cost. Together, we can help inspire EVERY Crown Point student! Here’s how you can help:

Below are some of the responses we've received from Crown Point School Corporation employees:
" The extracurricular fund will assist students in situations like MacArthur Elementary faced last spring. The school's robotics team competed in the World Championship in Kentucky. Because of the expense to families, the school had to raise money for travel, hotels, entry fees, and meals for their participants. Otherwise, the students who qualified for this competition wouldn't have been able to participate. As a result, the students now have a lasting memory of a great school experience."
"The need for teachers and support staff to be appreciated is HUGE. They work long hours and the job seldom ends when they leave the building. KUDOS to you for doing this for them."
“Our school truly believes that field trips are an important part of every child’s learning. Great things are discovered outside the classroom, in places that many children are not able to experience in their lives outside of school. We want to be sure that each student is able to attend these trips, no matter their family’s financial situation. Our PTO funds the large costs of our trips, including the buses to get us there, through fundraising that gets tougher and tougher. We teachers appreciate this so much, as nothing compares to the eyes of the kids at the museum or aquarium for the first time, or the excitement of being a pioneer for a day, or an astronaut for an afternoon. The only problem is that it does take away funds that could be used towards special events, etc that are done throughout the year. Any help that Operation Inspire could offer, would be so greatly appreciated by the teachers, students and families of Timothy Ball Elementary.”
