• On behalf of the entire Sonoran Foothills staff, we welcome you to the 2018-19 school year. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be your new principal! It will be a true pleasure to meet all of you and get to know each and every student. It is our hope and expectation that this will be another successful year for your children and for your family. We are committed to providing a warm, welcoming environment here at Sonoran Foothills.  Our goal is that your students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, as partners in your children’s education, we hold the key to success!

    As we approach our fourth year with another substantial bump in enrollment, our AZ Merit data indicates strong academic achievement in most grade levels.   It is our ongoing goal to strive for excellence in all areas of academics.

    We will continue our All Things EQ program, which promotes positive character traits.  All Things EQ has a valuable parent component and we hope you will view the weekly messages to reinforce the traits we are emphasizing. If you have not received information on accessing the weekly video, please let your child’s teacher know.

    We have added new staff members in a variety of grades this year. Again we were able to hire stellar teachers and continue to have a mix of veteran and beginning teachers. It is my belief that this combination adds to vibrant staff dynamics!

    We will continue with our vision for a STUDENTS FIRST school. We welcome your insights and suggestions as we strive to improve our school for the benefit of your children. Please feel free to contact our office with any concerns that may arise. Keeping the lines of communication open is a top priority.  Here’s to another great year!
