BLIZZARD BAG DAY?
Currently ... at our school
From the Principal's Newsletter: Thank you for attending and supporting your children in Children’s Stage Adventure’s version of “The Fisherman and His Wife”. The children were outstanding even if they did miss a day and a half of practice as a result of a snow day and a delay! And it is obvious we have quite a few talented few actors and actresses in our midst.
Rebecca LaQuerre, our art teacher, gave birth to a baby boy on Monday, March 3rd. Both mother and son are doing well. While Rebecca is on maternity leave, Amanda Heisler will step in to fill Rebecca’s shoes at Nelson, Harrisville, Marlow, and Westmoreland.
This year we successfully completed five Blizzard Bags days which means that our last day of school, barring any additional snow days, will be on June 16th instead of June 23rd with only one snow day to make up. Thank you for working together to help make this happen.
SAVE THE DATE! The annual Nelson School PTO Auction will be held on Saturday, April 12th, at the Nelson Town Hall. Don't you want to be there?
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.
