 Welcome to Sonoma Elementary

Sonoma School is a neighborhood school constructed in 1974 as an open building to create a barrier-free environment for the school's physically challenged students. The staff at Sonoma emphasize academic instruction while still providing the extracurricular activities which we believe are vital when providing a well-rounded program for students.

 Young at Art Contest

     Sonoma School students won the 1st 2nd and 3rd places for the category of sculptures in the art contest. The winners gathered at the Mistlin Art Gallery on a Saturday to claim their awards. They got to take their artwork home after being on display at the ceremony.


 Information Regarding Free Public Education

Section 5 of Article lX of the State of California constitution guarantees students a ‘free public education.”  The state Supreme Court concluded in the 1984 case of Hartzell v. Connell (35 Cal. 3d.899 (1984)), “that all educational activities carried on by public school districts, extra-curricular as well as curricular, must be without cost to the students who participate in such activities.”  This same ruling found that “mandatory fees for participating in such extra-curricular activities as drama, music, and athletic competition were illegal under the State constitution.”  Furthermore, they also rejected the argument that “fees could be charged so long as the district waived fees for students who were financially unable to pay.”

 Mr. Willett in the Modesto Bee!

Kindergarteners react to Sonoma Elementary School principal Darin Willett in a tutu and sombrero today (04-04-14) because kids made a goal of raising $5,170 for the PTA at the Scholastic Book Fair they had the first week in March. Willett promised the kids that if they surpassed their goal of $3,600 he would wear the get up. The book fair theme was Fiesta...that 's why the sombrero is included. Modesto principal feels so pretty – olé!
