Thinking, Creating, Reflecting: Impacting the Future


Letter from the Board: Jan. 22, 2021

Dear Spectrum Families and Friends,

Hello from the Spectrum School Board. My name is Melissa Prete, current Board VP and past Board President. Whew….we made it through the holidays, 2020 is finally over, the days are getting longer, and every day we are another day closer to Spring, WOOHOO!

The Board welcomed 4 new members at the January meeting. Welcome aboard to current parents Dave DeCastris (dad of Otis in the Early Elementary “Dreamers” class), Jason Judd (dad of Olek in the Preschool “Explorers” class), and Michelle Carlin (mom of Lucas in Middle School). Also, welcome aboard to Amanda Kieper, who works at RVC!

Spectrum’s board is a working board, so in addition to sharing their personal insights and perspectives, new board members’ professional skills will be utilized in committees and task forces. Our continued focus is the sustainability of Spectrum School. We continue to work through the challenges of the pandemic, ongoing fundraising through the Spectrum GoFundMe page (, and the budget process. I am the Alumni chair and remind everyone to follow our Alumni Facebook page, Spectrum Alumni/Families (, and the Spectrum School Alumni LinkedIn page.

The Board and I appreciate your continued support of Spectrum School. Questions or comments can be sent to Melissa Prete,
