BLIZZARD BAG DAY?
Currently ... at our school
Recently, a Search Committee with parent, teacher, and school board representation was formed to meet and complete the first round of interviews for the 1-2 classroom teaching position. From a pool of 140 candidates, 9 candidates were offered interviews. Of these 9, only 7 accepted as two had already been offered jobs in other districts. In my many years of interviewing, I have never seen such a strong pool of candidates. After the search committee’s marathon interview day on Wednesday, May 1st, two candidates emerged at the top and were invited back to teach a day in the 1-2 classroom. These sessions were outstanding, making the final decision so difficult.
We are very happy to announce that Mrs. Mary Triolo has accepted our offer of a teaching position for the First and Second Grade class next year!
Introducing Mrs. Triolo
Dear Nelson Community Members,
On a personal note, my husband Joe and I have a 4 year old, Ava and a 10 month old baby, Mia. We love spending time reading together as a family and enjoy spending time outdoors in the spring and summer hiking, boating, and exploring nature. Joe is a fire fighter/fire inspector and our children love to visit him at the fire station!
I want to thank Sheila Vara and the interview committee for giving me this opportunity of a lifetime to teach at the Nelson School! I would also like to thank Superintendent Wayne Woolridge and the Nelson School Board for this incredible honor! This is the opportunity that I have been searching for and I know that the children and I will have a smooth transition together at the start of the new school year!
With warmest wishes,
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.

Math Tutor(s) Needed
We are in search of math tutor volunteers to offer assistance to our Nelson middle and high school students who need a little nudge. We will work with you to work out the logistics of place, days, etc. but we'd like to know if anyone in the community would be willing to do this.
