Principal's Message

Dear Cipriani Families,


It is with great enthusiasm that I am writing to introduce myself, Sandy Pugliano, as the new principal of Cipriani Elementary School. Cipriani is well-known for its academic excellence and strong community spirit. I am honored to have been selected to join the team.


My passion for education and my commitment to supporting the success of all students has been shaped by over two decades of service and motherhood.  Over the course of my career, I have successfully served east and west coasts, urban to suburban, and affluent to disadvantaged communities. I have held roles as a district-level administrator (Coordinator of Data & Assessment & Literacy Coordinator), literacy coach, reading specialist, and elementary classroom teacher (Grades K, 2, & 4).   Also, as the mother of three boys, I am wonderfully aware that children are innately curious and possess their own unique talents.


My goal as Cipriani’s principal is to continue to foster the high-quality instructional programming already established, while seeking opportunities to innovate and strengthen the experiences provide for students.  I am excited to bring new ideas while honoring the well-loved traditions that build upon the engagement, sense of belonging, and growth mindset of students, staff, and community.


This is truly an exhilarating time to join Cipriani Elementary.  I am excited to be a part of the community! Each of us plays an important role in creating a climate where all students thrive socially-emotionally;  develop physically and academically; and contribute locally and globally. I look forward to partnering with all stakeholders to support our mission.  


I look forward to a spectacular year!



Sandy Pugliano
