Principal's Corner

Welcome to Cross Street

Welcome to Cross Street School. My name is Melissa Cooney and I have the honor of serving as principal in this dynamic school community. My uncompromising view is that all students can learn given a positive learning environment that focuses on rigor, relevance and relationships. As a member of the Cross Street School team I enjoy combining efforts with staff, parents, and community partners to create the most rewarding learning environment for each student. We are partners in your child’s education. Being a parent is the most important role anyone can have.  You are your child’s first and most crucial teacher. If education is a priority for you, it will be for your child.

 The Cross Street staff and families work in partnership to provide excellent learning opportunities for each of our valued learners. Our mission is to foster the development of the whole child by providing an intellectually rich and challenging curriculum in a safe and caring environment. Children work best when expectations for learning and behavior are clear and consistent.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I check my email several times a day, my address is: You can also call Mrs. Mariano at 203-720-5227 and leave a message with her and I will return your call by the end of the day.
