BLIZZARD BAG DAY?
Currently ... at our school
Week of April 7: The Nelson School PTO Auction will be held this year this Saturday, April 12th, at the Nelson Town Hall. We are teaching our children that if you put your mind to it, anything can be accomplished.
Who knows what surprises will be in store for this year's event? Come on up to the Town Hall to preview the items up for auction beginning at 10 am. Silent bids will also be accepted at that time.
Later in the evening come to the PTO Auction at the Town Hall beginning with the Children's Auction at 5:30 pm followed by a public auction at 6 pm. Nelson's own Chris Wallenstein, auctioneer, will emcee the event, donating his time and expertise once again.
We Are A Blue Ribbon School
Nelson Elementary School is one of three schools in New Hampshire that have been named Blue Ribbon Schools. The Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private K-12 schools that are either academically superior in their states or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement. Each year the New Hampshire Department of Education has sought out schools where students attain and maintain high academic goals, including those that beat the odds.
First, it recognizes schools that have at least 40 percent of their students from disadvantaged backgrounds that dramatically improve student performance to a high level on state assessments or assessments referenced against national norms at a particular grade, as determined by the Chief State School Officer (CSSO).
The Mission of Nelson Elementary School is to instill strength of spirit and ignite a love of learning.
