Principal's Message


Dear North Primary School Families,


On behalf of the faculty and staff at North Primary School, I would like to welcome back those families that were a part of the North Primary School community last year.  In addition, we would like to extend a warm welcome all of our new students and their families.  You are coming to an absolutely magnificent school. Our teachers and staff are passionate, caring, hardworking, and always willing to learn something new for the benefit of your children. We are a collaborative and driven group of individuals who take learning seriously while also making personal connections that help our students succeed.


The 2021-2022 school year is officially underway! When visiting North Primary you will see a few "new faces" that have joined our family:


  • Miss Carolyn Welka will be teaching learning support.
  • Mrs. Erin Smith will be teaching second grade this year,
  • Mrs. Nicole Ferraccio will be our 3-4 online teacher.
  • Miss Taylor Franco will be our speech and language teacher.
  • Mrs. Chelsey Perriello will be our elementary behavior specialist.


Once again this year we will be implementing our school-wide positive behavior plan at North Primary! Behavior expectations have been identified and will be recognized by the faculty and staff when students display these behaviors. Special event opportunities will take place each nine week period in conjunction with our school-wide positive behavior program. The Building a Cavalier will continue this year and will be awarded on a monthly basis.


I look forward to a positive and productive school year! If you ever have a question or a concern, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school or via email at


In Partnership,


Christine M. Ross
