Gingerbread Candy Donations Needed

The staff at Nelson School are on the search for candy! As part of our holiday activities, the students will be decorating small gingerbread houses on Thursday, December 18th. In order for this to be successful, we need more candy. While we have a small supply left over from last year's decorating, we anticipate the need for more. If you are able to donate candy, in all shapes and sizes, we would be very appreciative. Smaller candies seem to work best (M&M's, red hots, peppermint disks, gummy bears, etc.). You and/or your child(ren) can drop candy donations off here at school any day next week.

Thank you so much!

Blizzard Bags

What a fabulous turnout for our first Blizzard Bag day. Students and staff were hard at work completing all assignments. Phones were ringing, emails were buzzing, and web chats were up and running. Thank you for all of your hard work and support.

Please be prepared to have your children complete their work, with the help of their classroom teacher, should you get the call that we will have a second Blizzard Bag day. All teachers are available via phone and/or email throughout the day to assist your children. Thank you for all of your help and support with this project.

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).
