• Principal’s Message 

    August 2020

    Dear Sakai Intermediate families,

    I am excited to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year! For those of you returning to us, welcome back! For those of you new to our school, I think you will find Sakai an extraordinary place for your child to learn. While this year will look unlike any other we have experienced, the care and intentionality our staff bring to our students will look the same.

    First of all, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Drew Crandall and I am the Principal of Sakai Intermediate School. I have been in education for sixteen years as a Principal, Assistant Principal, Instructional Coach and Teacher. This will be my first year at Sakai and with the Bainbridge Island School District and I am extremely excited at the opportunity to serve our community! 

    Our goal is to provide a caring and collaborative learning environment for your student. We take the responsibility of educating your student seriously and with great intention. Education is a partnership and I greatly look forward to working with you to ensure a high level of learning for your student this year. Your support is crucial to your student’s success.

    Please know that my door is always open. I encourage you to stop by with questions, concerns, or simply to introduce yourself.  

    I look forward to a wonderful year of growth and learning!

    Drew Crandall
