Without our volunteers, Sonoran Sky would only be a shadow of the vibrant community of which we are all so proud. Imagine our school without a carnival, without a book fair, without a website or newsletter, without room parents, without field trips. We need you to volunteer, even if it’s only for an hour at a single event.
Please complete the 2016 Volunteer Survey. Find your niche! We have opportunities for parents with all sorts of skills and interests. Watch for immediate and urgent volunteer opportunities in the PTO newsletter, or contact our volunteer coordinator to join a specific volunteer committee that suits your talents.
