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 2020-2021 school year! 2020 has by far been one of the most challenging and unique years!!  As we quickly transitioned into Distance Learning in the spring, it was one of the greatest moments of adaptability and change that our students, teachers, and families had to endure.

The one thing I noticed during this time was the unyielding commitment, dedication, and true devotion that the Sonora staff has for our students and families. We were able to work together and navigate through unprecedented times.

Because of our collaborative approach in working to overcome these challenges, our theme this year is BETTER TOGETHER. We are committed to working collectively to support our students, families, and one another in providing a high quality and rigorous education. We are also committed to creating a virtual or traditional environment that helps to maintain positive relationships, set and achieve positive 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. 

Research identifies the strong correlation between school and home. This will be even more critical as we work in partnership to support our students, whether through Distance Learning, a Level 2 hybrid model, or traditional instruction and attendance.  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, please email me at, or 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 via Zoom. 

It's my honor to work in partnership with you to support your child and don't forget, we are BETTER TOGETHER!


Mrs. Mia Doidge
