Principal's Message

Be True. Be You. Sonora Elementary School. Eagles.

Dear Sonora Elementary Families,

Welcome to Sonora Elementary School, home of the Eagles! On behalf of the Sonora staff, I'm so excited to welcome our new and returning families to the 2023 - 2024 school year! The Sonora community recognizes that children are our priority and work together to create and provide the best educational experience for our kids.

This school year's theme is Be true. Be you.  

Each one of us has unique qualities and assets that, when cultivated in a supportive environment, can help us meet our full potential!  Our staff is committed to growing in our character and refining our practices so we can help our children recognize their gifts and help them become the best versions of themselves. Be true. Be you. is about honoring, appreciating, and accepting every unique person on our campus and knowing that we each have something special to offer!

At Sonora we choose to work collectively to support our students, families, and one another in providing a high quality and rigorous education. We also choose to create a learning environment that helps to maintain positive and respectful relationships, set and achieve goals, and show kindness and empathy towards one another. 

We will continue to pride ourselves in our 2020 Distinguished School Award, our strong partnerships and showcases in the Arts, and our Six Pillars of Character traits. Each classroom is represented by additional character traits, that students learn about and show pride in.

Research identifies the strong correlation between school and home. This is critical in ensuring that each one of our children succeed. I value open communication with you and serve as a partner in your child's educational experience. If you need to contact or meet with me, please email me at, or 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, in person, or via Zoom. 

It's my honor to work alongside you to support your child and let's show one another how to Be true. Be you. 

Sonora Love,

Mrs. Mia Doidge
