At Sassarini, we believe in providing each child with a safe, caring environment; a rigorous and engaging curriculum; and experiences that foster creativity, exploration, and a love of learning. We believe every child deserves a chance to reach their full potential, and thus we provide high levels of both challenge and support. We are proud of our school and excited about the many new programs we have put in place to support our students. Come and visit us!
A Note from the Principal
Sassarini has an amazing staff. This year the Helen Ann Buckley Foundation selected two of our many GREAT educators as the recipients of the Inspirational Teacher Award.
Congratulations Ms. Henion and Ms. Monterosso! Please make sure to congratulate them if you see them around campus.

Attendance is crucial to student achievement. When a student arrives late or misses school, it negatively impacts their ability to keep up with progressively challenging instructional material. This year we have implemented a new positive incentive program that is already paying huge dividends. It is called PERFECT attendance. Classes strive for seven days of perfect attendance, with no students absent. For each day that every student in a class is present, the teacher writes a letter on the board, until the class eventually spells the word “P-E-R-F-E-C-T.” Winning classes receive a prize.
