Principal's Message Dr. Puerta-Sarmiento.


Dear Cassell Parents/Guardians!

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter to you as the Principal of Cassell Elementary School.  I am excited and honored to continue to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition both in and out of the classroom.

Cassell will continue its goal of academic excellence through hard work of our students, teachers, parents, and staff.  We encourage you to experience our school culture, one that is focused on providing students with the academic and social resources that will prepare them to achieve their future goals.


At Cassell we believe that it is important for our students to be connected to school through positive relationships and a strong sense of community.  I believe that every student can learn and be successful if provided the right support and opportunities.  Our teachers and staff are committed to providing all students with an appropriate and challenging educational experience in a respectful environment that fosters learning and growth.

A crucial part of success for students is attendance.  As a parent or guardian it is essential for you to maintain an attitude that “Every Day Counts' for students to be in school and ready to learn each day. Parents/Guardians play the most important roles in a student's success and I invite you to collaborate with us in your students' education


When we take the time to strategically plan, forge positive relationships, celebrate our achievements, and continue to build on our successful foundation, we can foster a learning environment where our entire Cassell community thrives.

Cassell Elementary School is a place where exceptional teaching and learning is the norm.  I am truly honored to be a part of the Cassell Community. We look forward to opening up post the Covid-19 pandemic where families can join their students in their learning. Until then we will continue to create long lasting relationships and memories with our students. 

Have a great school year!

Dr. Puerta-Sarmiento, Principal
