Jennifer Johnson and Family

North Sashabaw Elementary School is located in Clarkston, Michigan. NSE's school mascot is the Wildcat and is one of seven elementary schools within the Clarkston Community School District. Kindergarten through 5th grade students attend North Sashabaw Elementary. Upon leaving 5th grade, students enter Sashabaw Middle School (6th and 7th grade) joining together with the other six elementary schools. Every year we enroll approximately 350-400 students. We are also a "Leader in Me" School! This means that we believe every child possesses unique strengths, gifts, and talents and therefore, everyone has the ability to be a leader. In order to move toward this end together, a common language and learning about 7 specific habits helps to guide us. NSE prides itself on educating the whole child in order be successful. You can check out our "Leader in Me" page for more information.

Dear North Sashabaw Families,

A graphic of a paw print with the words With much excitement and anticipation I am writing to welcome you to North Sashabaw Elementary School! Whether you are returning, new to the district, or about to begin Kindergarten, we can’t wait to meet you and your family!

We hope that this webpage provides you with useful information about our school and staff. This will be my 8th year in the Clarkston School District, where I served at the middle school as the Assistant Principal and Interim Principal. In total, this will be my 21st year in education. Previously, I taught at the elementary level for 13 years . As you will come to see, the NSE staff are a collaborative, committed, and passionate group of educators dedicated to creating, designing, and thoughtfully planning a learning environment that is safe and nurturing for every child.

As you may know, North Sashabaw Elementary is beginning its 6th year as a Leader in Me school. Together, we are excited to continue this journey with you and your children as we learn and practice how to be thoughtful leaders who are uniquely and wonderfully equipped to positively contribute to our world.

Please take a moment to browse our new website ... we have many exciting things to share and we very much look forward to meeting you and your child(ren). Should you have questions, please feel free to contact me by phone or email.

Very Sincerely,

Jennifer Johnson
