Thinking, Creating, Reflecting: Impacting the Future


Letter from the Board: Nov. 22, 2019

Dear Spectrum Community,

The Spectrum Board of Directors is strengthening its committee structures to better serve the school. As such, the decision was made to provide you a monthly update from one of several standing Board committees. This month, we wanted to share with you the remarkable work led by Board member Mary Baldauf to give back to the Rockford community, spotlight Spectrum, and bring additional funding into the school.

Mary facilitated Spectrum being selected as Subaru’s local not-for-profit for their annual Share the Love event, and has taken our participation to even higher levels. Spectrum is co-sponsoring a toy drive with Subaru to benefit Children’s Home and Aid. Mary has also set up a Spectrum table at Subaru that will display student work, informational fliers, and most importantly, will be a positive visual presence and representation of Spectrum School of Rockford to EVERYONE who walks through their doors. She has been a driving force in the creation of several videos to ensure people can actually see into the work we do, both at our Subaru display and online. These videos have then been masterfully crafted by Spectrum staff and students. Therefore, the outcome of this event is putting Spectrum on the map in new, unique, and impactful ways. The sales force at Subaru has been in-serviced about Spectrum to give customers who buy or lease a new car a compelling reason to allocate their Share the Love donation to us- that is, that we are growing the leaders and world changers who will give back to the Rockford area now and in the future.

Please donate a toy to the event. Please come to Napleton Subaru on Perryville on December 7 from 10am-12pm to participate in the Toy Extravaganza with Santa, cocoa, crafts, and cookies.

If you want to know more about the work of the Spectrum Board, participate in one of the committees, or even consider Board membership, please contact Board President Charles Barnes at We enthusiastically encourage your involvement to keep Spectrum strong and moving forward!

Spectrum Board of Directors
