PTO programs and events are coordinated through a number of committees lead by dedicated parent volunteers. There are always committee chairs in need of assistance. Come to a PTO Meeting to learn more. If you are interested in an open position or in taking on a particular leadership position when it does open, please contact Alison Feinberg at email@example.com.

- Sign Up Genius is the online tool used by Sonoran Sky Elementary PTO to organize and coordinate volunteers for various events. It's easy to use and eliminates the emails and paper sign up sheets we're all used to. You'll simply need to provide a first name, last name, and email address the first time you volunteer.
