Neaten Up Nelson
On Saturday, August 22, we will be hosting a “Neaten Up Nelson” day. From 9 am until 12:30 pm, we will be moving back into classrooms and working on the grounds to prepare for the beginning of school. Adult volunteers are invited to help with moving back into the classrooms and work on the grounds in preparation for the first day of school. The construction crew will still be working on part of the school on this day as well. Around 12:30 pm, we will be having a cookout that all members of the community (including students) are welcomed to attend. Stop by, grab a hotdog and say hello to everyone!
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.

NEWS & NOTES
Community Week at Nelson School - We need you!
From October 26 to October 30 Nelson School is hosting Community Week! We are starting to round up community members from Nelson and Sullivan to share their knowledge and expertise with the students. We need you!
Do you know how to create something? Have you gone on a trip that you'd like to talk about? Are you willing to come in and share about your career? Do you have expertise about a topic that you'd like to teach the children?
We are excited to work with you to arrange a whole school assembly, a large group instruction, or a small group informational session on a topic of your choosing.
Please contact Nelson School if you are interested!
