Dear Spectrum Families and Friends,
We had a surprise visit from author John Gile today and I am so excited about bringing this remarkable man into our Spectrum community. He donated copies of The First Forest and Oh How I Wished I Could Read. He met many students and, basically, I fell in love with what he brings: a love of words, of reading, of writing, of nature and imagination, of using our hands and minds…as Spectrum-y a person as I have ever met. He promises to return frequently – to read, to share, and to inspire.
Are you aware that the Middle School has been producing a weekly newspaper and a weekly podcast of Rockford area leaders? Both are amazing and just keep getting better. Blues legend Pistol Pete was their latest guest. See it on YouTube here!
Pennies for Patients is off to GREAT start. I love the enthusiasm of our students in helping others. Please continue to support the effort! Lorien and Avenlea are the big stars this week, with online donations of over $200.
Another uplifting week has thus transpired.
Dr. Mary Beth Cunat
