Dear Frey Families,

We are so thankful for the great support and service that you provide to our wonderful community. Frey Elementary School PTSA is asking for your continued support as our school begins the initial stages of installing a state-of-the-art sensory modulation room. A sensory room combines a range of stimuli to help children develop and engage their senses within a safe environment. This multisensory room will be one of the first of its kind in Cobb County Schools, and what makes it unique and significant is that it will have the capacity to support all students. Exemplary scholar students, shy and quiet types, ones with emotional difficulties—everyone will access the room at one time or another.

Our goal is to provide a specifically designed environment using the latest technology to help students assimilate and be more productive during school hours.

For example, Children that have Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), may be hyper- or hypo- sensitive to sounds, smells, or touch in such a way that certain environments can be painful or traumatic. Some children may be uncomfortable in fluorescent lighting, others may vomit at the sound of a leaf blower, and some may have no reaction to extreme heat or cold. While it is most commonly seen in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, SPD manifests in different ways throughout the population and ranges in severity. Sensory rooms have been proven to have a positive effect on these children’s ability to react and interact with the larger world around them.

Frey’s sensory room will also serve students from the general population. When children experience trauma they can exhibit behavioral issues or emotions not conducive to learning. The sensory approach to dealing with trauma promotes self-regulation and teaches children positive ways to deal with stress, anxiety, and mental health symptoms. Kids aren’t tiny adults. They process their world differently and we want to ensure that Frey has the ability to help these students thrive. When we give educators the ability to help the students that need it the most, the entire community benefits.

The projected cost of this project is $25,000 and we are asking for your financial or in-kind support as a benefactor of this groundbreaking project. Frey ES PTSA is a 501(c)3 organization and all donations are tax exempt. We welcome your support at any level, but as a token of our appreciation and gratitude, individuals or business who give $5,000 will be honored with a dedicated plaque that will be prominently featured at Frey Elementary for years to come. Sponsors that donate $1,000 will have their names engraved on a shared plaque and all donations over $500 will be recognized on the Frey PTSA website and Newsletter.

Please contact me if you would like to make a donation or if you would like to know more about this amazing opportunity to support our community.

Warmest Regards,
