Help Stock Pleasant Grove with Sensory Supplies!

Dear parents:

As many of you are aware, Spectrum Academy is opening a new school in Pleasant Grove in order to better meet the needs of children and families in Northern Utah.  Opening a brand new school is exciting, but brings unique challenges with making sure our students have all the supplies and equipment that they need.  We would welcome your support in making sure our Pleasant Grove campus is well-stocked and prepared to support the sensory needs of our incoming students.  Below, you will find a list of items needed.  Since many sensory supports can be made for much less than they can be purchased, those items are included in their own column.  Detailed information/patterns can be provided for construction, if needed.  As always, any donations of time and materials will go toward your volunteer hours.  This is a great way to get those hours done early in the year.  Please contact Krisanne Lewis ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , 801-936-0318 ext 4001) with any questions.  We thank you in advance for your assistance in providing our students with the most supportive learning environment possible.
