5 Minutes for Fundraising Contest Winners!

Another contest has come to a close and we are excited to announce the winners!

The Five minutes for Fundraising Contest Winner is Ms. Karpen’s Class. They’ve won a pizza and popsicle party!

This class received the most points for signing up with the programs below.  Quite a bit of our PTO budget comes from incremental passive fundraising, where the school receives a small percentage of total sales from local stores and businesses. To earn this percentage, we need shoppers to identify themselves to the store as Sonoran Sky community members. Anyone can do it, but often stores will require families to rejoin each fall.

BUT DON’T LET IT STOP HERE!  If you, your family, your dentist and your neighbors haven’t signed up with any of these opportunities yet, they still can!  Take a few minutes and follow the link below, remember every penny counts!
