    Mr. Merino

    Welcome to Niagara Street Elementary School! The Niagara Street Elementary School community consists of teachers, support staff, parents, and community partners working together to provide a safe, orderly, and productive learning environment for all students.

    Academics- Our Teachers, Support Staff, and Administrative Team have embraced educational strategies that aim to engage and challenge all students. Our goal is to prepare students with the necessary knowledge and skills to flourish in prep school, high school, and college, while at the same time encouraging creativity, curiosity, and a life-long appreciation for learning.

    Restorative Justice - We utilize Restorative Justice practices. We make every attempt to mediate student disagreements rather than punish students through suspension. Our goal is always to keep students in school.

    Classroom Instructional Look Fors - Our instructional focus at NSS in every classroom is: 1) Posted daily learning targets. 2) Student engagement. 3) Frequent checks for understanding during lessons.

    Clubs- We offer a wide variety of clubs that include Student Council, Music Club, Art Club, Baking Club, Magic Club, Basketball Club, Running Club, Swim Club, Broadcasting Club, Meditation Club, and Service Learning Club. Our goal is for every student to find an activity that they are passionate about and can pursue in prep school, high school, college, and beyond.

    Parent Engagement - We welcome parent involvement! We encourage parents to join our Parent Engagement Team and take part in various parent/family activities that we have each year.

    Character Education- We strive to develop the social and emotional growth of each and every child. School-wide character education is promoted each and every day. Our goal is to graduate grade 6 students that are kind, helpful, tolerant, and productive.

    Technology- Niagara Street Elementary School is a state-of-the-art school which offers students the latest in educational technology. Students will benefit from the daily use of interactive smart boards, personal laptops, and our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) lab.

    Niagara Street Elementary School is a community learning center that we can all be proud of. I encourage you to contact our Leadership Team with questions, suggestions, or concerns.
