Grades 1 & 2 Pancake Breakfast - Success!  The Pancake Breakfast sponsored by the Grade 1 and 2 classes at Nelson School on Saturday May 3rd was a huge success and lots of fun! We raised $ 393.50 thanks to the Nelson and Sullivan communities coming to our fundraiser! A special thank you to our chef, Charlie Lang, who prepared pancakes, sausages, and home fries! We appreciate your hard work and donation so much!  Also, a special thank you to Ms. Benner for helping us run this breakfast, we could not have done it without you! The 50/50 raffle was won by Melanie Kinson; congratulations! Thank you to all the parents and students for their generous food donations and for coming to "work" on a Saturday to raise money for our class! The kids did a wonderful job and were very excited to be servers and cashiers! This breakfast concludes are Pancake Breakfast Fundraisers for the year at Nelson School, we can’t wait to see you in the fall again! Thank you so very much to everyone who made this event a HUGE success! You are very much appreciated and our class thanks you from the bottom of our hearts!

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).
