IMPORTANT NOTICE! Any student in a summer program (K3+, JUMP, Arrowhead Park) should bring a filled water bottle to school this week. Temperatures could hit 106-degrees! Elementary children in summer programs should also bring a dry, kitchen-sized towel in a baggie. This is to be used in case the child gets overheated. Parents, all afternoon recesses and outdoor activities are going to be indoors this week. Keeping our kids cool!!

Operating Principles and Core Values

Student Centeredness
  • Every child is honored as an individual.
  • The whole child is taken into account: academically, physically, and emotionally.
Integrity
  • Sonoma staff bases its curriculum on the National Common Core Standards for English Language Arts & Math and NM Standards and Benchmarks for Social Studies and Science.
  • Grade level teams are highly effective instructional teams.
  • Families and staff work side by side to bring out the best in each child.
Positive Environment
  • Staff professional actions have a positive effect on student learning.
  • We guide students to become responsible for their own learning.
  • Learning is the focus for both students and adults in the school.
  • Mistakes are opportunities for learning. Positive reinforcement is key.
