Dear Sonoran Sky Community,
Please let me introduce myself! My name is Whitney Crutchley, and I am the incoming PTO President. I want to sincerely thank Holly Busch, my predecessor, for her leadership over the last two years. Many of you may recognize me, as I have been at Sonoran Sky for five years now with Miles, my 4th grade son, and Bella, my kindergarten daughter. I am looking forward to what we can do as a school over the next couple of years.
I want to personally invite everyone to attend our monthly PTO meetings. The next one is May 6th at 7:45 am in the Media Center. Childcare is provided Mrs. Smith-Day in her 6th grade classroom across the hall. Each meeting begins with an update from our very own Mr. Dawson and then collaborates with him and other staff members on nearly every aspect of the school year. For this session, we will be planning for the remainder of this school year and setting our calendar for next year. Sonoran Sky celebrates its 20th anniversary next year. Did you know we have several staff members who have been here since the beginning? Of course we’ll be celebrating, so come join the fun!
Finally, I would like to give your attention to some new things going on around campus. Our first ever Science Night on Tuesday was a huge success, with nearly 200 families in attendance checking out the Science Lab and our Outdoor Classroom and Garden. We had over 20 children demonstrating their science knowledge, and our hallways were full of posters and tri-folds shared by our students. The PTO extends a special and heartfelt "thank you!" to the APEX Fun Run donors and community businesses that provided the generous donations to make this possible, as well as the tireless volunteers who worked so hard to make it happen.
Our front marquee project was also completed last week, with a new memorial paver courtyard, seating wall, shade tree, and flowerpots to bring a welcoming and cheerful façade to the front of our school. Never fear, bricks can still be purchased! We will be periodically installing more bricks as orders come in--so get those orders in! ;)

Planning for the new outdoor classroom and garden space is underway and it is going to be amazing!
We need your help! Do you have any contacts or leads that might be able to help us with this project? Pavers, paver installation, gravel, garden soil, gardening supplies, plants, shrubs, trees, metalwork... We need it all. Anything we can secure as a donation or at a reduced rate will help us stretch our project funds as far as possible. If you can help with the new outdoor classroom, please contact Kristen Neugebauer or Bianca Cords.
