Principal's Message

Dear Sonora Elementary Parents,


Welcome to Sonora Elementary School, home of the Eagles! On behalf of the Sonora staff, welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. Sonora has just been named a 2020 CA Distinguished School! I am thrilled to be a part of the Sonora school community and am looking forward to getting to know you and learning about what you value in our school community. 

Something unique to Sonora is our enriched learning opportunities focused on the arts. We have partnerships with the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Orange County Department of Education and various organizations throughout Orange County. Family events, assemblies, and a wide variety of after school programs also provide enrichment opportunities for our students. Students have opportunities to participate in band, hand bell choir, and our vocal choir! We also focus on the Six Pillars of Character, with a different character focus each month. This helps to develop students who are well rounded both academically and socially.

Research identifies the strong correlation between school and home. We offer several ways for you to become involved in our school and show your Eagle pride! Our PTA and Dad's Club provide opportunities to work with other parents to support our school. You can attend our Friday Eagle Rallies and watch different classes perform each week! Every Monday students are encouraged to wear their school spirit wear, and every Friday students can wear college t-shirts!

We value communication with you and are a partner in your child's educational experience. If you need to contact or meet with me, simply call the office at 714-424-7955 and speak with Cindy Henthorn, my Administrative Assistant. She will be happy to arrange a time for us to speak on the phone or in person. I am also usually available before school and at dismissal to answer any questions or concerns. 

It's my honor to work in partnership with you to support your child and I hope to see you often!



Mrs. Mia Doidge
