Dear North Shore Families,
My name is Manny Marquez and it is with great excitement that I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. It is my honor to serve such an incredible school and community as Principal of North Shore Elementary (NSES). North Shore has a rich history and culture of providing a learning experience that supports the academic, social, and emotional needs of every student. Our very talented staff is dedicated to creating an environment that encourages innovative thinking and confident learners that are prepared to succeed in the 21st century global community.
In an effort to provide a safe and positive learning environment for all of our students at North Shore Elementary School, our staff utilizes a Positive Behavior Intervention Support plan (PBIS). This program is designed to create and maintain a safe school environment by promoting positive behaviors. PBIS is a system-wide approach to behavior management where the behavior standards are infused into every part of the school atmosphere. The idea is to help students learn about positive actions, steps to problem solving, being safe, being respectful, and how planning and preparedness leads to success.
We invite and encourage you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our amazing Eagle Boosters, and attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child. We believe that the road towards developing productive citizens is a team effort, and we are excited to be teaming up with such an amazing group of parents and families.
At North Shore we believe in offering students an academic experience that provides students opportunities to find what inspires them. This is accomplished by ensuring that we continue to develop programs that support every interest of students. Whether it be through our amazing visual and performing arts program, science, technology, or athletics. We believe our students deserve the opportunity to have access to programs that will ignite their desire to learn and grow.
The staff here at North Shore share the belief that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children of NSES. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and community. All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve our common educational goals.
On behalf of our dynamic staff, we are excited and inspired by the idea of another exciting year here at NSES. On a more personal basis, I am humbled by the opportunity to serve as principal of such an impressive school. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
