WHERE GIFTED CHILDREN THRIVE Science Arts Academy has a remarkable story to tell a story that began with a vision by our founder Helene Bartz. Dr . Bartz believed in creating a school that uniquely served the needs of gifted learners and from that dream back in 1992 SAA was born. Rooted in the tenets of academic challenge artistic expression and social/emotional learning Science Arts Academy has been a leader in gifted education for the last 25 years. From parents and alumni to faculty and current students we are proud to be part of SAA. This is our school this is our community this is our home. On behalf of our Faculty and Staff and Board of T rustees I thank you for being part of this very special occasion. Special thanks to Director of School Advancement Nina Menis Admissions and Alumni Coordinator Diane Angelucci and Homecoming Picnic Co-Chairs Jennifer Ilko and Amy Wang for their tireless enthusiasm and unwavering dedication to making this such a celebratory event. I’d also like to thank Joann Polko and the members of the 25th Anniversary Committee our sponsors and partners and everyone who participated in making this event so meaningful. May this 25th anniversary serve as a springboard for even greater opportunities for our students and our school. In grateful appreciation Timothy P . Costello Head of School
