Principal's Message

Dear Sonora Elementary School Parents,


Welcome to Sonora Elementary School, home of the Eagles! On behalf of the Sonora staff, welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. I am thrilled to be a part of the Sonora school community and am looking forward to getting to know you. Our school is committed to working collaboratively to ensure that all students succeed and believe there are "no excuses" in achieving your full potential each day.

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. We are proud of our award winning band, hand bell choir, and vocal choir! 

Research identifies the strong correlation between school and home. Becoming involved in our awesome PTA and the Dad's Club will allow you to make new friends, have an increased sense of belonging to the school community, support special programs, and be an active participant in your child's education.

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
