Garden Committee Meeting | Tuesday, February 2nd

First, the Skyview PTA would like to express our deep gratitude for YOU. The Harmony Garden is almost a reality and we are over-the-moon about the financial support it has received this year. Thank you to everyone who has helped finance the first phase of this beautiful project. A special thank you to the Exchange Club of Lake Highlands, Moss Haven Elementary PTA, Town Creek Neighborhood Association and Forest Meadow Neighborhood Association. We wouldn't be here without you.

The ground-breaking for the Skyview Harmony Garden is scheduled for the weekend of April 15th and 16th. That means we have a little under 3 months until our BIG dream is a BIG reality. Some of you who are reading this have attended one or both of our fall committee meetings and others of you have simply said, "count me in" when the time comes. Well, the time has come!

Please join us at our next meeting on February 2, 2016 from 6:30-8pm. The meeting will be held at the home of Sarah Greenman, Skyview's PTA president. We will be serving refreshments and hors d'oeuvres and discussing action items. Get ready to mobilize! RSVP by email to and Sarah will send you her address with more information about the meeting. This is going to be a ton of fun and we cannot wait to work with you!

Tubano Drums for the Skyview Harmony Garden

Here is our first set of instruments for the Skyview Harmony Garden! This purchase was made possible by donations from YOU via "Donor's Choose". Thank you to our music teacher, Mr. Aeschbacher for organizing the purchase of the Tubano Drums! We'll have more to announce in the coming weeks, but until then take a look at our colorful Tubano Drums!

An letter from Skyview's music teacher, Mr. Austin Aeschbacher:

Thank you all for your generous donations to this Outdoor Harmony Garden project. We are still in the early stages of development for our garden, but these tubano drums were the first leap of many in ensuring that this garden will impact all of my students to come. We are looking forward to a ground-breaking ceremony in April of this year, and we hope to enjoy the fruits of our labor in the Fall of 2016. 

With these tubano drums, our students are already thrilled and excited about what the future holds for their school, and I cannot wait for the chance and opportunity to reach students in a whole new classroom environment. I am certain that when these drums will be a show piece for everyone at Skyview to perform and make beautiful harmonies in the outdoor communal space.

With gratitude,
Mr. Aeschbacher
