Local visiting author Ms. Rachel DiNunzio visited our school on Thursday to read students her book "Be Kind." Our primary grade students loved the book, which was written and illustrated by Ms. DiNunzio.
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!
Congratulations to Niagara Street School's November Employee of the Month, Tina Asklar. She continues to do a tremendous job in our PEP Program.

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!
