An optional, fantastic way to support Spectrum Academy and the education of students with autism spectrum disorder is to collect pledges to support your participation in the Turkey Trot! Almost half of the funds we raised last year came from this individual and team fundraising. Not only will you support our wonderful school, but you will also earn prizes. Check out all the details here: http://spectrumturkeytrot.weebly.com/…/fundraising_instruct…
Everyone can enjoy back to school at Spectrum Academy when they register for the Turkey Trot and get 15 percent off their registration at check-out! Use the promo code BACKTOSCHOOL to save big. Offer expires September 30th.
Make sure to check out this year's Sahara Cares carnival for Autism on Saturday, August 29th. There are so many fun things for the kids to do!
We are so grateful for our returning sponsor, Del Sol! Del Sol is an international retail brand that specializes in clothing and accessories that change colors with sunlight. With more than 100 store locations in 25 countries, Del Sol is the world’s leading brand of color-changing apparel and accessories, and one of the most highly promoted merchants onboard Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Princess, Disney, Celebrity, and Norwegian Cruise Lines. Based on its proprietary Spectrachrome® Technology, originally developed by NASA, crystals are harvested from the sunniest, most colorful places on the planet and then engineered for use on more than 10,000 retail items. Much like a flower that blossoms in the sun’s rays, Del Sol’s exclusive Spectrachrome® crystals open and unfold upon exposure to sunlight; revealing their hidden colors. Look for some amazing Del Sol products in your swag bag this year! www.delsol.com
As we start gearing up for Turkey Trot 2015, it seems appropriate to look back on 2014. We are happy to announce that the 2014 Turkey Trot raised over $28,000 for the Occupational Therapy (OT) department of Spectrum Academy to meet the sensory and motor needs of our students! With this outstanding fundraising total, the OT department has been able to fulfill its wish list of occupational therapy equipment with the goal of helping students improve their academic performance, peer interactions and behavioral challenges. A sampling of the purchased items includes: a large variety of seating options (ErgoErgo, Runtz, Wobble and cube chairs), moon & cuddle swings, vestibular boards, punching bag, and noise-canceling headphones. Our OT professionals and teachers have already seen a difference in our students’ success! Additionally, all teachers should look for sensory boxes coming soon to meet the basic needs in the classroom.
The 2014 Turkey Trot...drum roll, please...raised over $28,000 for Spectrum Academy to meet the sensory and motor needs of our students! Thanks to those of you who came out to support the race. Your participation has made a difference in the lives of our 1000 students and their families!
Congratulations and thank you, everyone, for helping make this Turkey Trot so astoundingly successful! We'll have exact numbers soon, but until then, enjoy these links!
