  • A Million Reasons to Believe

    Sorensen Elementary students will deliver letters to Santa in our continued partnership with Macy's and the Make-A-Wish Foundation's traditional "A Million Reasons to Believe" campaign on December 12, 2014.

    The inspiration for the Macy's Believe campaign came from a letter written by an 8-year-old girl, Virginia O'Hanlon, in 1897, to the New York Sun. She wanted to know if Santa Claus was real. The editor, Francis P. Church, replied with the most recognized and most reprinted editorial ever written for any English Language paper..."Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist."

    Granting wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions often provides a turning point in their illness. The wish and medicine combine to help them feel better physically and emotionally. The wishes granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation range from meeting a favorite celebrity, visiting a specific location, sitting in a broadcast booth, and many others. When the children get older, many have said that the wish experience contributed to their recovery. As this year's Macy's holiday campaign unfolds, it does so knowing that children, as well as adults, take away something positive to believe in and remember through the wish-granting organization of Make-A-Wish.

  • Nature Conservation for Future Generations Habitat Project

    Sorensen Elementary students participated in a Nature Conservation for Future Generations Habitat Project where they learned about native plants and trees, the planting process and how their actions in this process will affect flora and fauna on our campus for years to come. We are thankful for the partnership with Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge which made this endeavor possible.
