Please Donate to Sonoran Sky Elementary!
The Sonoran Sky Elementary PTO, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, invests a significant amount of additional funding into our school each year, beyond the minimum funding provided by the state of Arizona. We are fortunate to have a caring community that supports Sonoran Sky fundraisers with generous private donations–without requiring our children to sell wrapping paper or cookie dough!
SSKY PTO Fundraising Opportunities
Back to School Drive In August, we ask our families to donate right away in order to continue the many unique PTO programs at Sonoran Sky, including the Wonderland Classroom and Garden, our Artists in Residence, classroom magazine and software subscriptions, technology updates, the SkyWriters’ Secret Garden publishing lab, and other capital improvements.
Apex Fun Run In December, our Apex Fun Run encourages our extended family, friends, and neighbors to support public education with per-lap donations supporting physical activity, leadership, and community. This fundraiser is typically associated with a larger identified need at our school. The past two years’ Apex proceeds built our award-winning Wonderland Outdoor Classroom, Garden, and Amphitheatre. Future identified improvements may include updated playground equipment, soccer goals, additional outdoor sunshades, and a modern theater sound system.
Evening Fundraiser This event has looked different every year. Some years we have an adult-only event; however, this year we are planning a community-wide, family-friendly event with a silent auction. Past events have included the “Taste of Sonoran Sky” and the SSKY Golf Around.
Community Business Partners We solicit donations from area businesses as a channel for business owners to support an excelling local public school in exchange for advertising and exposure to our grateful community. Interested business owners can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Smaller Incomes Additionally, we have several smaller streams of revenue, including clothing and yearbook sales, Enrichment classes, the Carnival, the Book Fairs, food trucks at STEM Night and the Art Walk, Box Top collections, and other similar retail activities.
Where Does the Money Go?
We encourage you to participate and give as you are able, to the benefit of our children. Each year, the total amount donated by parents is invested in the current school year. The PTO takes pride in being good stewards of your donations, and we encourage you to attend our open PTO meetings the first Tuesday of every month at 8am in the school library to see firsthand. Every parent is a member of the PTO, and we welcome your insight, experience, and opinions as we work to improve education at Sonoran Sky.
