October 22 - November 5
The PTO is solely or primarily responsible for funding many of our special programs at Sonoran Sky, like back-to-school start-up materials, Artists-in-Residence, science instruction with full-time Master Gardener Karen Klein, electronic resources, important additional professional development for our teachers, and so much more. To maximize our ability to meet our financial obligations in support of these programs we rely on funds primarily raised from Team Thunderbird, Cantina Night and Read-a-Thon. Each event is relied on to raise a portion of our yearly operating expenses.
We need to raise $25,000 through the Read-A-Thon to meet our budgeted obligations and fund our special programs.
If we raise more than the $25K we need to meet our financial obligations, those additional funds will go directly toward a new shade structure on our 1st – 6th grade playground. The type of permanent shade structure we are hoping to install is expensive and it may take a while to raise the necessary money, but the more successful Read-a-Thon is, the sooner we’ll be able to add this amenity.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact RAT Committee Chair,
Kristina Brown at email@example.com.
*Be sure to check your student’s Friday Folder on October 19th for their Read-a-Thon Packet.
Let’s have some fun, read like crazy and make some money for Sonoran Sky!!!
Thank you in advance for your support!
