  • Learning Center

    Mission accomplished for fifth-graders at Challenger Learning Center

    NSS fifth-grade students in Ms. Critelli’s, Mrs. Peters’ and Mr. Weiss’ classes had the opportunity to go on a field trip and visit the Challenger Learning Center in Lockport.

    Born out of the tragedy that took the lives of the Challenger crew on Jan. 28, 1986, Challenger Learning Centers were created by the families of the crew as a living memorial to their spirit of exploration.

    During the visit, students took part in a simulated space mission to construct a probe and gather information from Comet Halley streaking across space. They were assigned various roles in mission control and space station areas and had to incorporate reading and various STEM skills to accomplish their mission as a team.

    Students also learned how to create a mock comet and learn about the solar system in the center’s state-of-the-art mobile dome planetarium area. It was a great learning experience for our students!

  • Musician delivers power anti-bullying message to NSS students


    NSS students in third through sixth grades attended an anti-bullying assembly Wednesday hosted by musician Johnny Misso, who runs a program called Kick It With Johnny Live. Misso began the assembly with an impressive performance on the drums as several popular song videos played in the background. Misso delivered an extremely positive message to our students about how music helped "save his life" and helped him escape from being bullied as a youth. He also chose several of our students to join him on stage as part of a demonstration to discuss strategies to overcome bullying in schools. He encouraged everyone in attendance to conduct acts of kindness and be good to people for no reason. His message to kids: "Life is tough, but so are each and everyone of you!"

  • NSS send special messages to Hurricane Maria victims 


    Ms. DiGregorio's Service Learning Club is working with The Character Council of Western New York on the "Caring" and "Citizenship" in Action Letter Project for Puerto Rico. Our students recently created bright, encouraging and caring cards with inspiring messages for children and families affected by Hurricane Maria. We created cards in English and Spanish, with the help of Miss Nilia, a counseling intern from the University at Buffalo. Miss Nilia is fluent in Spanish and was born and raised in Puerto Rico. What a learning experience for our students!
